    Bumper Cost Comparison

    I understand your point and agree. That is why we dont offer it and they should not either if they arent going to hold up to doing it. Outsourcing doesnt save any money for us so I doubt it does for them. Our fabricators already know how to set up everything and get it done quickly whereas even...

    Pelfreybilt ::: 3rd Gen Tacoma - Dual Swingout Rear Bumper ::: Pre-Order SPECIAL

    We are trying haha. We did build a prototype, realized that the third gen sucks and is more like a curvy minivan with a bed and had to change some lines on it to get it to match up better.

    We just had new phones installed and they suck. We have been trying to fix this issue, I suppose thats what we get for going with Cox. Shoot me an email, even when I am not in the shop I still typically can reply to those! Michael@pelfreybilt.com

    Bumper Cost Comparison

    Yes haha. If they do it in house it sucks to set everything up to do one bumper. Their tubing stuff is probably all set up for sliders and hoops. Time is money, and the industry is in decline, so no time is wasted that doesnt have to be haha

    This, we have a ton of customer customized bumpers out there including the front bumpers as well (integrated front hitch, extra supports for the front hoops, etc.)

    Bumper Cost Comparison

    To be completely fair, in the spot you were in, you would still be likely to break your tail light. I have personally been out twice and watched guys with all kind of tubing everywhere bust out their tail lights. They had side tubes, over the tail light tubes, bedside tubes etc. I have never...

    Slider Cost Comparison

    Not necessarily much lower but yes we were selling things at a lower cost in 2016 as the materials were much better costs for us, in bot steel and aluminum.

    Tire pressure

    We run varying PSI between vehicles here. Personally I run 40 PST in front and 38 in the rear on my second gen (right at about 6k curb weight currently) Falken 315/75R16 MT01's but ran less in the same size MTR's w/ Kevlar. Vehicle weight and tire type/brand/rating play into it a lot but trial...

    Aluminum Skids?

    We have tested bot the steel and aluminum and the steel is marginally better taking large hits but will over time take continuous hits much better and as @0uTkAsT said the steel is repairable where as aluminum tends to crumple.

    Help me pick out some leafs ! Icon RXT 2 vs Dakar HD

    We have installed both and run the Dakars on all of our rigs. Both are great packs, we just decided to continue using what has been proven to work for us. Either way you cant go wrong.
  37. Pelfreybilt

    Slider Cost Comparison

    We have already been hit at least twice with huge increases in materials, even in bulk. We have had to raise prices twice and since we do keep in contact with a few of our "competitors"(friends) we know they have too.

    As soon as I have something solid for you guys I will post it, doing it right the first time takes time. There is a reason when we released our T4R rear bumper most of our pre orders already had other companies rear bumpers and switched to ours!

    Sliders

    definitely sliders first, most people dont ever get skids (even though we always tell them to). Typically you are more likely to damage a door or side of the vehicle, something as small mas kicking up a log. Hits the door in the right spot, door doesnt open and you are out 3500 to replace the door.

    One of the reasons we did not go all the way back is after tons and tons of testing we found it almost impossible to hit the small arear between the slider and tire. Another reason is we tested multiple angles and slider height, where we ended up provided the most over all protection. We did not...
