    Hey Guys,

    My buddy does lots of Fab work. He is a jeep guy but has respect for us Taco's. I mention this as he has done LOTS of fab work on jeeps(also a recent Ram) and is looking to expand his horizons.

    He is getting started on my Taco, currently making me a custom Skid Plate, only the front part done for now but we are working on getting the full belly covered.

    I will get a build page going shortly and link it here as he will be doing ALL of the work on my Taco as i learn.

    Next on the list:

    Bumper (s)
    Rock Sliders
    Cage (to hold my RTT and 2 spare 33's)

    Just want to get a chat going if anyone is interested. Ill share some pics asap, but curious if anyone would be interested in some Fab work?

    I feel i may only get bites when i share the work on mine haha

    He just made me some custom skid's, need to get a coat of paint on the tcase section then will toss up some pics.

    As for the bedrack, could be a few months easy as im waiting on the RTT group buy time. As for what he can come up with, I can get you guys in touch and he does some pretty custom stuff too.

    Check out his facebook page, Hes a one man show so work can take some time as hes a bit of a perfectionist.

    I vouch for him and his work, check out his Facebook page in the interim,

    (Its updated by another friend mostly, as my buddy tends to live in his garage)

    Bare steel will probably rust, mine are just primed and painted. I think he would be looking at 6-800$ for all 3 skids. Id have to double check, as its also custom work on what the owner wants.

    He has access to powder coat but that can alter cost obviously.

    Toss a question up on his facebook page and we can get a chat going that way if you have questions

    Send them a message or write on their facebook wall. Facebook is best bet, Jeff would be the guy to do it and quote you the best.

    It just clicked, i was hanging out with him and he told me about the job.... haha

    Couldn't hang around tho, anytime he would do some work on a Tacoma id aim to stick around out of curiosity.
