    Well, it's about time I do this.

    I've been quietly building/fabricating/installing/modifying some of your trucks for a while now and thought I'd get the word out a bit. Let me know what I can build for you or what I can install for you. Located in North LA County (SFV/Glendale/Burbank area).

    Suspension installs, CMC, sliders, bedracks, bedbars, tire carriers, roof racks, and other custom junk.


    Here's some random examples of things I've done:

    7A2D0A06-EBBA-46AD-A6BA-24661B0CDBA0[1].jpg

    Standard CMC:
    This picture is actually a great example of something I do that I haven’t really seen elsewhere. Flattening the pinch weld, trimming the fender well liner enough so that it sill covers it and pinning it back using OEM hardware for a factory look. There’s no need for a truck to look hacked up just because we’re hacking it up. (Another pet peeve of mine). My favorite mods are the ones that you can’t tell are there at first glance.

    This is a pair of my roof racks. One of my pet peeves for dual racks is when they don't line up or sit perfectly flush in relation to each other due to cap/rail height differences. I build my mounts specific to each truck so they always line up. Also, as far as I know, I'm the only one building roof racks at a 48" width.

    If I've built something for you in the past, feel free to post a pic and leave some feedback (I'm really bad at taking pictures).

    Thanks! I've been seeing some garbage-ass work lately from other places that I find unacceptable. Nothing leaves my shop that I'm not proud to have my name attached to it.

    Looks good. Never built anything for me but used the Prinsu Access Cab install thread as a very useful guide to my install. Keep it up sir!!!!

    Are you referring to your rear “bumper“? I’d rather start from scratch honestly. There’s usually more work in trying to modify/reinforce something than just starting from nothing. I do have a tube prerunner style rear bumper that I’m building that currently has no permanent home.

    The rear is ugly as well, but functions very well. The one I am referring to is the full front bumper I have. The shipping weight on it was 225lb with bumper, winch tray and pallet.
    It's a beast and was just looking at options possibly before I sell it or scrap it.
