What we hope to achieve through this thread..
- We want to get feedback on what people like and what people don't like about our design and configuration. Tell us how it is... We are ready.
- We also want to have these in production by the middle of July.. So we are ready to listen and take action according to what feedback we get.
STOUT FABRICATION is a shop based out of Las Vegas, NV that has been building Jeep (primarily YJ, TJ and LJ) parts for the last several years. Our bread and butter has been rear corner guards, flat fenders and sliders for the above listed models, with lots of in-house builds that range from nice small grandpa rides to $100k JK's. With full CNC capabilities in the way of Laser Cutting, CNC Bending with the help of AutoCad and Solidworks, we are capable of creating parts that are as competitive as many of the big names out there. We have recently begun designing our JK line and we are trying to get caught up with the times. We have always been proud (in a good way) of our competitive prices and customization of many of our parts. We do all we can to help those DIY'ers, as that is where we all come from. We look forward to being able to offer a competitive product and VERY competitive pricing. We have several neat products coming down the pipeline in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out.
Front Bumper Information
We will incorporate 2 fog lights for the factory or factory replacements as well as clevises for D-Rings. It has a slightly recessed area for a winch, dropping down about 3/4" from the rest of the top of the bumper. We will have optional bull bars as well. This bumper will mount using the factory horns and will not require relocating any factory parts. It has an overall width of 54" to keep the law off of your tail.
PLEASE REFER TO POST #28 FOR UPDATED PHOTOS OF THE CURRENT VERSION WITH A RECESSED WINCH....
Rear Bumper Information
This bumper stick out to the side just wide enough to cover the outside of your license plate and extend forward to catch the backside of your flares while maintaining a high clearance on the outsides to avoid dragging unnecessarily on obstacles. It sticks out the back behind the tailgate far enough to protect your tailgate so you don't drop off of an obstacle and land on your spare tire, smashing your tailgate and rear window. We will have an option for recessed reverse lights as well as a receiver for light duty use (not pictured).
Thanks for taking a minute to look through what we have going on. PLEASE take a minute and let me know what you think we can do different or what really stands out to you that you like. We all know that a bumper is a bumper and it can be difficult to think completely outside of the box, but we think that we have hit on many of the things that people are really looking for (as have others out there), and we hope to be able to bring it to life at a price that works for many people! Thanks again for your time and feel free to call or E-Mail any time with questions if we can do anything for you.
