A+ service and products!! Just got the front bumper about 2 weeks ago it was near perfect!! Fit was spot on, finish and welds look amazing. Rear bumper on order can not wait to see it!
Lead times are a little long but what do you expect when you are buying a custom hand made piece? I can say 100% the product is worth the wait!
Thanks again!!

Any plans for 12-14' front bumper group buys? I saw you had a 05-11 last year.

Dislikes?
Lead times are nothing compared to some fabricators. If you had bolt on sliders, I would have them on my truck too.
I've been waiting for 8 months for my beef sliders...

I can speak on Brian's work, it will be impeccable and exceed expectations.

Tyler, if you had some 5-lug specific parts, that would be killer.
Like skid plates, LCA skids, maybe some low-profile sliders.
5-luggers and single cab 6-luggers have a 4 cylinder, so weight considerations are what keeps me from buying heavy steel bumpers and things.

I know you don't really do aluminum, it weakens when welded, but if there were more aluminum products available, I'd be more inclined to buy products like that.

Once we get caught up and lead times back where they belong that is the intention.

Two things.

1) HC rear bumper: A bit more slope along the sides, not so much a fan of the straight cut......probably more of just personal taste, so once I pull the trigger there I'll probably just have you one-off me a custom version. Also, FRENCH DOOR STYLE/DUAL SWING-OUTS!

2) Rear corner reinforcements for the bed. With our beds not being 100% metal, there is a tendency for the corners to spread when weight is added up high (like a cargo rack on a camper shell). And now that I'm in need of some work on one corner (rollover damage), I'm realizing an opportunity to significantly strengthen a weak point on our trucks. I'm thinking approach it from the inside, meaning some disassembly would be required; tie it into the frame, with a robust gusset the full length......maybe make one continuous piece corner-to-corner, kinda like the stock one. And you were the first person that came to mind to do it!

Oh, and yeah. x3 on the gas tank skid. Also, rear diff skid.

I am annoyed that it isn't mentioned on the website that you have to drill into the frame to mount the T-case skid. If I had known that I wouldn't have bought it, now I'm gonna be selling it.

For starters I think you guys make cool products. Currently stock and have no plans of upgrading at this time. With unlimited funds I would like to lift / level the truck to the Baja ride height, add bumpers and recovery gear for self and others, slightly larger tires, integrated light bar and fliptop tent.

From an engineering aspect I like the tube bumpers from a structural standpoint, but from an cosmetic standpoint on a new vehicle they are not my favorite. I would like to see a tube bumper with bolt on panels. The bolt on panels could be made of a thinner gauge or even aluminum for weight savings completing the plate bumper. If a client damages a panel then it could be replaced. From a manufacturing stand point it could reduce costs and lead times with a jig.

One criteria that is a must, the aftermarket bumper can not extend out further than OEM. Currently the truck clears the garage by 1.2" so I would be sensitive to bumper overhang. If it is shorter that would be a plus.

Ok Tyler, here is my issues and solutions to your fine relocation kit.
First the holes for the shock didn't line up. This was fixed with a relief hole.

Also your kit wouldn't fit 14" shocks in my application.
I am sorry I had to do this to your kit. Extended the front by 6" and the rear by 3" on the hoop. I also flipped the bumpstop bracket upside down to allow a more centered bump mount.

It was a very nice product and we'll put together. The black and white instruction manual was quite a pain to look at.... come on its 2014 everyone has a colour printer.

Ahh. Thanks for the bump, didn't see the post.
Did you get a 14" shock in there? You extended the hoop too? How's the clearance on the bed and tire?
It's designed for a 12" but if you made that work that's awesome.
I see where the radflo shock top is a bit bigger, I'll have to make adjustments for future orders in case people go the radflo route.
Is that a 2.5" shock as well?
Looks great, hats off to ya for all the extra work to make it "you're own"
Sorry about the instructions not being in color, just a setting I can change,
Lol.
Thanks again for the order.

The hoops themselves fit so perfectly in the tire well I almost threw up. Lol. But I mounted the resi's on the top of the hoop which killed the clearance. I had to cut about a 9" x 12" hole at the base of the tire well. If I had realized this before hand I would had mounted them in another location. (I actually figured I was going to cut out the entire well)
I went with the 2.5s.

Tyler,

Any thoughts in adding a "crossmember" or "support" for the trans skid? Mines getting pretty flat.

Yes, I have noticed that after some time they are flattening out a bit. I am considering adding gussets at the bend for additional strength.
I have only seen a couple cases where they do this, it takes some work but if you hammer on em hard enough they do flatten some.

I'll put a little more time into the gussets and get them cut. If you have access to a welder and would like to add them I'll send them to you.
