    So most of you blokes in SoCal have heard of Kenny from KR Fabrication, hopefully heard of Andrew from TRIAD PowderCoating...

    Well for all of you .... all your fabrication thoughts, and powder coating issues are solved.

    I had kenny make me a front bumper bar, modeled after AVIDs light bar. I like the avid bar, but I didn't want something that everyone else had, and also something somewhat stronger.... This is what he made me.
    - 3x light mounts
    - the edges are pointed where avids are just flat and simple.
    - and an extra bar on the bottom, giving strength, and also another bumper from another lower obstacle.

    I was going to paint it myself, but then I met Andrew. He has his own shop, two other very nice guys in the shop, perfection on the powder coating, and he loves to do it. He showed me around his shop, took time to explain the process of what goes on, and he loves what he does so he won't rush through a job. Not to mention his great prices....

    SO moral of the story

    if you want something fabbed up....

    - Kenny @ KR Fabrication

    if you want something painted or powder coated...

    - Andrew @ TRIAD Powder Coating


    PROPS TO BOTH OF THEM!!!!

    Yes, but not sure about the TRD skid plate. It was custom fabbed up to my truck so not sure, but I have no problem slapping in on your truck to try it out for size

    Too bad I'm half way across the country or I would take you up on that. The bar is exactly what I'm looking for.
