Brute Force Fabrications

If you have every dealt with one of the nicest men in the world, it was probably Billy Simmons from Brute Force Fab out in California. If you had a great experience doing business with him. Leave some feed back here so everyone else can see how awesome he is.


My experience:

I contacted Billy after finding his company randomly through google, not on Tacoma World. I found a high interest in his product due to how similar in quality and how fair his prices were. I sent him a few emails about idea's and he was extremely helpful in every way too keep me a loyal customer. I finally called Billy and ordered my first steel plate front bumper. Took him 1 week after calling and it shipped out. It arrived at my house no later than 3 1/2 weeks after I ordered. WOW! now that's some awesome service. Everything was great about my experience with Billy and Brute Force. I am patiently waiting for a rear bumper fund/ everything else fund to spend it all at Billy's new shop. If anyone has any questions or experiences to share about Brute Force Fabrications. Please don't hold back!


Day I installed my bumper:

I have had the pleasure of powder coating a few of his bumpers and they are top notch. And it sounds like his customer service is as well

I had a GREAT experience dealing with Billy @ Brute Force Fab.

He took the time to answer all my question and concerns. Had him do some special Fab on my bumper and it came out perfect. I would recommend him too anyone looking for any fab work.

The quality and craftsmanship are top notch.

I am saving $$ now for a rear bumper.

Thanks Billy!

A+ So far! Got bumper on time.(fastenal gets a C..didn't call when they received it and they had undone the straps and possibly taken it off the pallet billy had it strapped to)

The quality of the bumper...well My friend who does welding a bit himself and been a mechanic for 20+ years...says it is machine quality welding! Yet billy did it all himself by hand..it was very impressed!(and wishes he could get one for his tahoe of the same quality ) Called billy when I was about to test mount it..gave me some very good tips and info. Overall..Billy is just as awesome as the beautiful bumpers he welds.

Agreed with everyone. Only thing I could possibly say negative was about fastenal. Billy is a stand up vendor.

I haven't purchased anything....yet. But BIlly and I have spent a lot of hours planning my order. Stand up guy, nothing but good things to say about him. He is overdue to become an official vendor on here.

Billy is the real deal. My rear bumper practically went on the truck with a better fit than the stock bumper. He's responsive and had been a man of his word from my experiences.

Brute Force Bump!

WHY U NO MAKE THIS FELLA A VENDOR BOB????!!!!!!!

Had Billy start on one of his Rear Plate Bumpers for me last week. Deposit was made last monday night.

Been great so far. Called me the day after I contacted him through his website to discuss bumper options/pricing/shipping. He was also prompt in returning my call letting him know I had gotten the deposit taken care of.

Looking forward to a sweet bumper!!!

Just saw this thread. I just finished installing both front and rear bumpers from Billy. They installed easily.
Took about a week shipping thru Fastenal. For me this was the cheapest shipping out of other fabricators.
I don't know why he's not an official vendor.
I would do business with him again.

Billy set up a group buy on his sliders for our crew up here in AK, and they turned out awesome! I haven't dealt with him a whole lot as another member set most of it up, but the few pm's I have exchanged with him were responded to promptly. Patiently awaiting him to come out with a 1st gen rear and he will be getting more of my money for sure!

I ordered a hybrid bumper from Billy a few weeks ago. Literally two days later I had an email telling me it was finished and ready to ship. Unfortunately I'm stuck overseas for another week so I couldn't have him ship it quite yet, but he has been helpful with all my questions and had no problem taking up storage space for the bumper until I'm ready to ship. Can't really argue with the prices either, it was a couple hundred cheaper than I was expecting.

Just so you guys don't start asking why you can't have a two day turn around on an order, the reason why I had mine ready in two days was because Billy accidentally made one too many bumpers for another order so he hooked me up with it.

So I don't have my bumper yet, but every experience so far has been top notch.

What a bumper!!



Fit and finish are amazing. Took less than 5 minutes to install the bumper with help from a buddy.

Billy seriously needs to be added to the vendor section.
