They use various thicknesses of steel to maximize weight to strength ratios, while keeping it torsionally stiff. It also features an easy-open latch that allows for one-arm operation. People make steering components and suspension links from scratch all the time at home with great results. It also is not listed in any specific order, although we wanted to feature the tire carrier swing outs at the top. Structurally the main portion of the bumper is identical to the base bumper, with the addition of either one or two heavy-duty spindles along with their proprietary latches. The prices I posted are for real sliders only not running boards. C4s attention to detail goes a long way with this bumper.
Update from BudBuilt We primarily build them from steel, yet we can retool to produce an aluminum one. To install, there is no welding or drilling required, and it mounts to the frame in 16 different locations using high strength bolts. Trying to find a good slider that isn't going to break the bank seeing as I am from Canada. I have had a great experience with C4 Fab and so I decided to stick with their product even if it costs me a bit more. They designed the swing out to support up to 250 pounds of weight meaning you can literally jump up and down on this thing without hurting it.
Other companies do not do custom work they just want to sell sell sell. I've had them for about a year now. As long as they are receiving a good experience. This is due to overwhelming number of light vendors appearing on the site. Unlike a lot of companies he's a one man show. Only thing it didn't have done at the time I bought it was the timing belt or atleast we couldn't locate a record of it being completed. I don't even know the man.
Being Canadian and upgrading a Taco can be a pain in the ass lol. Hefty features a full wrap around design, protecting the body panels from the wheel wells back. If you have oversized tires and are looking for a tire carrier, a hitch mounted swing out may be a good option. I want to spend some money. The proline 4×4 rear bumper is by far the most cost-effective bumper for your 4Runner.
It comes with options for different fuel canisters and an over the tire cargo basket for additional cargo. This is a follow-up to. I looked at 4x4 labs as well because theirs does not look to require cutting however they do not have the option to not have the swing out arms for the tire etc. The gas-strut assisted swing out arms make opening the rear hatch with one hand easy, even with the weight of a full-size spare. He needs to increase his lead times and allow for himself to handle all the other aspects of his business to make sure his current customers, and new customers are happy.
It can be set up to hold your RotopaX, jerrycans, fire extinguishers, shovels, medical packs and more. Their swing out is a single, full-width swing out option only. Overall the Hefty Fabworks rear bumper is a great choice for anyone who wants to add the rear protection without all of the weight. On the other hand, there is little to no one making shocks in their home garage because of their complexity. This helps avoid confusion among people seeing your post. With aluminum, we loose some of that abuse it can take because of the material.
Best way to get in contact with them? I'm also big on customer service and communication and wasn't willing to wait and take a gamble. On the inside, it comes with a drop down camping table to add usable space to the backside of the 4Runner. I take a lot of pride in hand crafting my products which does take time. Not bashing Billy at all. I'm also big on customer service and communication and wasn't willing to wait and take a gamble. Thanks for your help on this.
This gives the structural integrity of the originally designed bumper, with a custom twist for your personal setup. I design and fabricate all of my own products which means I control the quality and integrity of your part. I've heard nothing but good stories for the ones that were able to get in an order. This high clearance design does require the removal of the last crossmember on the frame, as the bumper bolts into its place becoming a structural part of the frame. I really don't want one that requires cutting of the original parts. If you have some items in mind that your looking at, shoot them our way and we can run the pricing for you.
For other options, you can choose the base bumper and then add their dual reverse lights added. Joined: Feb 7, 2018 Member: 12738 Messages: Gender: Male Vehicle: 2007 Tundra 5. I want to order the rear bumper from Brute Force Fab for the 5th gen. The hinge and latch mechanism for the swing arm is built and designed for no rattle and is lower than other bumper options. They attach to the frame with three thinly gusseted 1. Use them once offroad and replace them. When there's intricacies in the product or complex manufacturing methods being used, it's, effectively, always best to go with the original.
