==> Custom TACOMA Pre-Runner Bumper w/OEM Bumper <==

Thanks TW for following the KR FAB x RAD Bumper Build.

It has been a fun ride with Kenny in developing this bumper. I can now saw all E-mails, Text, Calls, Hours of Research, Back & Fourth, Discussions, Changes, & Time. It finally paid off and I'm in LOVE with this bumper. To me, it shows exactly my taste and style in what I wanted. It was a complete team effort between the two of us to make it work. The fact Kenny listened to me, took account to why wants/needs, and his expertise in what will/not work. Thank you Kenny.

We have a lot more plans for my truck in the near future and I look forward to that!





Can't wait to have the time to wire all the lights up. Till then, its simple BLING, BLING!















MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT IT. Something so simple but yet so effective! A trusty Beer Bottle Opener!

Big Props to KENNY at KR FAB!

Its been such a blast working with Kenny in regards to this bumper. The execution is simply AMAZING! The guy knows how to make visions become reality. . .


I look forward in our future projects.

Everything is about 90% Done on the bumper now. I've got to make the chrome housing on the DTRL LEDS black.

I've got to spend tomorrow wiring all the lights on them.

So this project has been waiting to happen for months now. I've talked to Kenny last May/June of 2011 about building a custom front pre-runner bumper. I had a lot of ideas brewing around and he really liked them.

So with his work schedule being busy as he Fabs for the City. He was not able to build me the bumper and it was scrapped.

I've been in contact with Kenny recently and we started talking about the project once again.

I was able to get some more ideas going and he really liked the concept. I wanted something that can bolt on to the crossmember without removing it. This was big to me. I also wanted to retain the OEM bumper some how to fill it out.

I then came up with ideas for a Pre-Runner bumper I haven't seen on others. Trust me, I've seen plenty of Pre-runner bumpers and I wanted to try to add some more flare. I ran it by Kenny and he loved it.

So we decided to make this happen and so this bumper begins!

KR FAB (KENNY) does great work and a stand up guy.


I'll post progress of my bumper as he sends me updates. I will pick up my truck on Wed 1/11/2012 in stock form. He will have it removed as we wait for my LED light bar and extras to arrive. Then once everything is measured out and all mounting tabs are done.

Then its off to paint the bar and then I'll go pick that bad boy up!




^ Thanks man!

Updates from Amir & Kenny Today!

^ THanks Krish! I picked up that bar tonight and fuck! Its amazing


Todays Updates. . .

I was able to have my GF take me to Acton to get my truck from Kenny. He has done all the work now for it and its time to wait for powdercoating and the skid plate logo.

I picked this bad boy up tonight and its super BAMF! Thanks Krish! I know Vi and Matt picked one up also.

This is one the best lights I've held in my hand and the quality is up there with RIGID and half the price. I've seen and held so many aftermarket ones that screams crap, junk, wtf! These look like Rigids!




















Thanks Kenny!

Check out the Welds and the Skids! I can't wait!

^ Its going to be Stealth. . . =) 22" Led Light Bar. . . I declined to use the 32" as it would over power the design and look odd with my idea.


Thanks guys!

Kenny and I are stoked over this. I'm in full smiles and like a little kid on christmas, I just can't wait.

AMIRa <SANDMAN247> stopped by at the KR FAB Shop to check it out and he was blown away. The welds, bends, and design are top notch!

If you know KENNY's work, he puts his heart and soul in each item he puts together. Thats why I trusted the man to work on my truck and also leave it with him for 3 days.

Eddie, Will, Amir, Aaron and others have all gotten work done by Kenny. They know his passion, integrity, and service. Eddie did the same thing as I did by leaving the truck there at the shop for a few days to get a full Front, Rear, Tire, Slider package. Dayum Eddie! Mr. $$$ Bags.


Stay tuned guys, I'm dropping off the LED light bar, DTRL Leds, and small misc things to have him finalize the bumper.

We just got off the phone and the conversation went towards a great idea we came up with. So with our two ideas, we're going add something else.
