    BACK IN TOWN AND OPEN FOR BUSINESS

    Okay, so here is what I got!

    I really like building stuff, especially stuff made out of metal, and it's even better when that stuff is put to use on a tacoma!

    This thread started as a feeler for bed bars, but it looks like I can offer a lot more than that now. So here is an updated list of all the stuff I can possibly build for you guys.

    I say possibly because I'm a senior in high school and it's getting close to graduation, so i have to work around school....but all my classes are really easy, and i have a lot of free time, so i can almost always find the time to work. BUT school does take priority


    Stuff I'm willing to ship

    BED BAR 50$ (up to 3 light tabs)
    1.5" diameter
    bolts into bed rails
    all hardware included

    Options Include:
    high lift mounts 20$
    1.75" diameter 8$

    pictures from jhodge

    another version

    [​IMG]

    v those are all 1.75"

    Local to AZ people (i.e. stuff I wouldn't have to ship)

    SKID PLATE 150$
    3/16" steel
    uses half factory hardware, and I supply the rest

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    5-lug version (this is on neslerrah's truck)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    BED BASKET 250$
    square tube
    bolts into bed rails
    hardware included

    *I'm planning on changing the design on how it bolts to the bed rails, right now it just sits a little too low. although the rest will be identical to the pictures*

    Options:
    re-use the stock spare tire carrier (adding that is free, you just have to get it to give it to me first)
    jerry can holders (you buy them somewhere, i'll put them on)
    Hi lift mounts 10$

    Don't be afraid to ask for personal touches, if you want something to be a little different then just tell me. I can probably do it for you

    I've done a few other little jobs as well. I turned a set of roof rack bars into "bed rack" bars, I helped make a surf rack, and i also make a bike rack (bed bars with square tube instead). so really, don't be afraid to ask me about any little project you would like made. as it will most likely be very cheap!

    keep in mind, i'm not a professional, these are not professional products. I built my own sliders and skid plate and they have worked flawlessly for me. I try my best to build things as strong as I can, from the design to the quality of work I put into them. I really do my best to make you something that won't break when you take it out on the trail. But still the off road armor I make is home made, although it's known that many people build their own gear with out problems, it doesn't mean they are perfect. I'm just a guy who loves building things, and I like the pressure of building them for you guys because it makes me work harder and in turn, I build a product that is of better quality than something I would make just for fun

    i guess there is enough interest to build a couple, so i'll try and build the first ones tonight/tomorrow.

    the price is in the first post. 40-50. depends on how much time and material it takes me. it'll probly be on the low side of my estimation tho

    I'd be down.

    Can you make them with a light tab on the passenger side? For a Hella 550?

    okay, i can do that for you andrew.

    For anyone who wants one, i can customize it to whatever you want (reasonably). the specs i started the thread with are just for a generic light bar. So don't be afraid to ask for specifics!

    40-50 is a good price as long as its still quality, good luck man!

    Nope. Pimps... don't need symmetric bed bars! :)

    And then I'll have it powdercoated here in Phoenix to match my sliders and avid bar.

    Don't worry, i'm not ganna make anything that i would be afraid to show off on my own truck, or something thats just ganna fall apart and make you come storming back to me demanding your money back:eek:

    My welds are solid and look good, i try my best to make everything symmetrical, and always make sure it fits on my truck before i say it's finished.

    If something does get messed or your unhappy then i'll do what i can to fix it:)



    I'll also have pictures tomorrow hopefully!
