The fit and finish on SDHQ fabrication is amazing. I was fortunate enough to visit the shop and its everything its cracked up to be. Serena showed me the FJ, an MRAP (google if you dont know), her Bug, and multiple Raptor builds.

Its on an entire different level than most shops out there.

so what's the benefit to this gnarly-ass bumper except that it'll block a few more rocks/bushes than a bumper with less frontal coverage? (that and it makes your truck look like it was crossed with the F117)

with most shops you will get HREW or Mild steel or DOM if your really lucky, it will have half the number of bends in it and probably .90 wall tubing. if your lucky enough to find a shop that will build boxed horns and not tubed most likely they will be cut by hand off a template and absolutely not 4130, and NOBODY else will TIG weld it for you its all MIG.

Thats why that bumper is $3k and they price most likely wont be getting any cheaper.

Ive said it once, Ill say it again. You get what you pay for and with SDHQ you are paying for the best. That K&R Bumper is cool but to put it on the same level as an SDHQ build is laughable (no offense) Theres a reason why people like Jesse James, Tony Stewart, Luis Gonzalez and other big name clients continue to take their vehicles there. I am a happy SDHQ customer and will continue to take my vehicles to them for years to come for that signature fit and finish.

The fact they can create something like what comes out of their shop is amazing. The welding and bending and notching is perfect. The tig welds are always on the spot. SDHQ hires the best guys that they can find so that their products are great. One of the guys used to work for Geiser Bros building Trophy trucks. When you have grade A talent working at a shop thats why people go to them and have them build something. Yes a garage fabber could build you something for less but you won't be getting the same product or service.

As far as shop fees, their fees on stuff is less then taking you junk to a dealer to have them do something. paying for custom fab isn't cheap and the material used isn't either

so it's just stronger? How often do people wreck their prerunner bumpers as is? Does it increase the overall stiffness/strength of the truck/build? Does it let you run over priuses with impunity?

There is a company that has a few of them for what they do and they take them to have them worked on on the shop. Both to get fixed or to get upgrades made to them

Probably a stupid question. But why would you TIG weld a bumper when MIG welding will do. Especially on a bumper?

sweet thanks. I'm looking for a bumper built like this. I have found several from different places but I really don't want to have to drive all the way from Sac area in order to get it done. There is a decent shop near me that has some narly 6x6 builds going on in their shop and do great welding but need some specifics on bumpers to let them know what I want.

Ah yeah, Santa Clara/ San Jose area. That's not to far, do able if I can get the right bumper made up. Thanks for that I didn't know they were that close.
