The pre-runner bumper for my 2017 Tacoma TRD-OR arrived today via UPS Freight; bumper & pallet both in A1 condition.
My God... that damn thing is MASSIVE!!! I was hoping it would protect my truck from unintentional collisions with whitetail deer, unfortunately a very common (and costly) occurrence here in Michigan. The ruggedness and strength of your builds was one of the primary motivators for my choosing your company and this particular bumper design from an sea of competitors. Now, after seeing this beast in person I have ZERO fears of damage to my Tacoma from deer impacts. In fact, that dang bumper seems strong enough to survive a head-on high speed collision with a rhinoceros! LOL!
Thanks so much! Take care.
We got many compliments on our bumper while on our way home. Fortunately, we did not have to test out it’s effectiveness. However, I can attest that it allows me to check the oil without using a ladder.
Was a little disappointed with the view from the front facing camera; a cross bar right in the center of the picture, but something that I can get used to. A design with an open square in the center might work better for future models (I’ll waive royalties for this idea????). The view is something I can get used to and the front camera is only on to assist in parking the beast.
Right out of the drive on 9/21, the adaptive cruise worked just fine. About an hour down the road, it quit. Then we stopped and got gas or something and when we restarted the truck the adaptive cruise worked again. This pattern continued for days. Two different Ford dealers couldn’t find any explanation for the fault and correction other than shutting the truck off forced a hard reboot of the system.
Couple of weeks later while still on our trip, a friend suggested removing the recovery hook from the side of the bumper where the sensor is. We were grasping at straws, but theorized that the vibration of the hook bouncing off the bumper when we hit a rough patch of road was causing the issue. That seems to have done the trick. Cruise worked the rest of the way home.
So my really cool after market recovery hooks are stored under the seat just in case they are ever needed. The original equipment recovery hooks that we debated over taking with us found a new home on my brother-in-law’s 1975 FJ.
We’re home resting up and planning the next adventure.
Thanks for a good product. Be well.
This bumper is amazing, looks phenomenal, and is everything I wanted and more. It, along with my other upgrades, has gotten nothing but huge compliments and questions on where they can find your product.
It's been great doing business with you, and I will eagerly tell all that will listen about TDK.
I bought a frame from you a few years go for an 81 CJ 7 build. Its taken a while, but the project is finished. Your frame is one of the highlights of the build. Thank you for a great product!
Got my bumper on. Looks great!
I wanted to say thanks for doing such a great job on the bumper/tire carrier for my 74 cj5. It fit great. The mounting fabrication you did was spot on. I appreciate your willingness to do custom fabrication.
Went to retrieve my CJ7 frame at UPS today. Got it home and wow...your workmanship is truly second to none. I'm a detail conscious guy, and I'm so glad this will be my new Jeep foundation. Thanks Jeremy!
Thanks, luv it!
Thanks for the quality build. Looks awesome.
Thanks for making a great looking bumper - I love it!
Just received the frame today - wow! Very nice quality! I am extremely pleased! Thank you for your service/help on my project.
Got my frame early this week, thanks! Man you guys lay nice beads...
Just wanted to say that you guys did one hell of a job fabbing that frame. I've been welding for 17 years, and I was impressed with the quality. I will be ordering more from you in future for sure!
Hey I wanted to share a pic of my 2015. Man this bumper gets so many compliments! Great job!
Hi Jeremy, finally a couple of photos of the Willys. Took it to Easter Jeep Safari (its first trail). We finished it three days before we left so we got pretty crappy trail choices. We did get lots of compliments. Your frame and the quality of your workmanship really got many, many compliments. We have taken it out three times in all, going on the Sierra Trek and then the Rubicon in the next month. Thanks for all your help.
CJ7 frame arrived yesterday. Looks fantastic!
Thank you very much for such a fine product and customer service.
Check out the cool pics we got of our frame-off resto with its TDK frame.
Awesome product! Thanks much!!

Got the frame swapped over. Everything went good and lined up great. Had some trouble with the bolt holes and studs on the frame full of galvanize but found that if I drilled them out one size under tap size then retap, the holes went great. Thanks!
It's a great bumper!!
Here is the finished product after I put the lights on. Thanks again!
I received the frame on the 27th and was very pleased with your work. I did add a few holes to accommodate my trailer hitch and a few other small items. I then took the frame to a " powder coating" business, and they gave your work very high praise. There were 11 men working at the facility and they all had to come out to see your work. They were all impressed. Thanks again.
Just wanted to tell you guys again what a great job you all do. Didn’t think I would be so impressed!!
If you want a bumper built to last and that actually protects your vehicle, Jeremy and his guys hands down are top notch.
My bumper came in early, so I took the holiday off work to complete the install. I can’t say enough good things about bumper and the customer service at Throttle Down Kustoms. Attached is a sample picture, I will get you some better ones in the near future. Thanks again for a great product.
We just got the frame for Todd A's 74 CJ5. This thing is badass - thank you! Hope to do more business with you guys in the future.

4 years with the front and rear bumpers. My truck should have been totaled multiple times due to Montana wildlife. 3 Elk. 2 deer. And bumped a moose. Your bumpers are amazing. Keep it up!
Thank you once again for another fantastic Jeep frame.
My bobbed CJ8 has gone on the back burner while I help out with my sons 98’ TJ project! The chassis has come together quickly, everything’s lined up perfectly!
I just had a new 2019 Sierra 2500HD delivered to me a couple of weeks ago. I ordered front and rear bumpers from TDK through Earl at Skyhigh Offroad here in Crested Butte, Colorado.
The build looks great, and I am super happy with the fit and quality of your bumpers.
Thanks for building a great product.
Thanks for the great bumper!
I couldn't be happier with my bumpers. Thank you!
I got the bumper in today, and man it looks good! Pictures don't do it justice. The lines and aggressiveness of this bumper are awesome!! I'm a welder fabricator and now an inspector, and I'm really pleased with the craftsmanship of this bumper. The welds look great!!
The boss took off for the weekend, so we got the bumpers painted and put on by Sunday. When he saw his truck in front of the office, we were inside watching him. We had the whole truck detailed to the max. I got the turbo and intercooler dialed in and carbon graphic on the hood. He walked around the truck and looked at it for about 10 minutes and then came in the office wanting to know whose truck that was... he wants his to look just like it. Hilarious. Your workmanship is nothing less than perfection. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT FIT. Boss stated you're a metal sculpting artist. THANK YOU FOR YOUR FABULOUS CRAFTSMANSHIP!!!!!
Just wanted to thank you for the superb fabrication job of my bobbed CJ8 frame! The project is coming along and so far all the chassis hard parts have bolted right on no problem. Excellent product, thank you again!
I know my lights aren't in yet but I just couldn't wait. Easy install and couldn't be happier! Thanks for a great product and it looks awesome. Thanks again.
The CJ7 frame you shipped to Cheshire, CT a few months ago has impressed EVERYONE who’s seen it or worked on it. It went mobile this week! She should be fired up soon. So happy and proud my son and his children will ride on it well into the future. The 1980 Renegade is reborn- THANKS for taking such pride!
I want to thank you and share with others about the great service and products (Mayhem grille guard bumper and rear bumper) for my '18 Silverado. You were easy to work with and very professional while being "down home" from our initial contact via phone. When I arrived to have the bumpers installed, your crew continued the small town friendliness and maintaining professionalism that eliminated any apprehensions. I ABSOLUTELY will recommend TDK at every opportunity. Attached are some pix now that Bruzer is cleaned up. Note the one addition one of my Military Brothers said was needed (attached to the rear bumper).
My husband and I bought 2 YJ JEEP FRAMES from you and we would like to tell you that WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM!! These frames have to be one of the best things we bought for our toys! They are just so perfectly crafted, we have been bragging about them since we got them! Anyone who is as in love with their rig as we are, this frame is the way to go to make it last FOREVER! Here is a picture of my hubby’s YJ progress and a picture of mine, who is next on the list.
I bought a TDK early Bronco chassis and was extremely impressed with quality of the chassis. The welds are of A/C (air craft) quality, all the parts are laser cut and are above being nice. The chassis is a work of art and is much better than any factory chassis I have seen or worked on. I’ve built several cars over the years and this chassis is by far the nicest I’ve seen in my 74 years of which 60 involved build cars and air planes.
Got a crossmember / skid plate and its awesome. Just finished 3 trips into Rubicon Springs in 3 weeks. I beat on that thing and it is bulletproof!
I went through 3 factory skid plates over the last 39 years, and yours is unbelievable! Thanks.
I like how the lines fit the lines of the truck, and it isn't made out of the diamond plate.
The bumper is a perfect fit. Durable, well-made product.
I really appreciated the customized service that TDK provided. They understood when I needed the frame and then scheduled shipping so that it would not arrive early (per my request). Rather than make, bill and push out the door, they took my needs into account and I appreciated that.
Perfect fit to the frame. Perfect fit to the truck. Just the perfect bumper!! The install took 2 hours total – that’s just me alone with no air tools. It doesn’t get better than that.
Great Quality. Solid Product. Stylish Looking.
I liked how it looked designed specifically for a Chevy. It really enhanced the bowtie on the front. The only thing I would have changed was the top bar, I would of liked it raised about an inch more to really show off the bowtie.
I must of looked at hundreds of designs online. When I saw TDK, I said, "That's it!"
I just wanted to tell you I received the 1972 CJ-5 frame. I am very impressed with your craftsmanship!!! Just a little history on my project. 20 years ago on my 16th birthday I got this 1972 CJ-5. Of course being 16 and having a jeep. I beat the shit out of it. Fast forward to today... Two years ago, My daughter was born on the exact same day as I was. So I figured I would do a frame up restoration on the the same jeep and give it to my daughter when she turns 16... If you would like before and after pictures to post on your face book. I'll send them. Thanks again for your craftsmanship!!! Here is the before.... I'll send one with everything on your frame except the body when I get there.
Hi Jeremy, Here is the first picture of the Jeep, it has been a long time coming. It is not even painted yet. I will send more photos. James Price
Hi Jeremy, Just wanted to let you know I love the new TDK Bumper. I get complimented on it all the time. Your bumpers sell themselves. All I had to do was set it in the frame rails it up and tighten up the bolts. Everything leveled right up with equal clearance below the headlights on both sides. You run a top notch shop. Keep up the good work!
Hi Jeremy, Thanks. I love it. Everything fit well. The guys didn't have any issue. I appreciate all your help.df
Hi Jeremy, I have had my build completed for a year now. I get compliments daily on the quality of that frame, I give everyone your info. Thank you for everything, I have attached some photos if you wanted to add them to your websites gallery. Thank you,
Hi Jeremy, I recently had a TDK Prerunner installed on my 2014 Ram Sport and it looks awesome!
Hi Jeremy, Completed this in October, on a TDK TJ frame I ordered without any mounts. Zero complaints with the quality of Jeremy's work.
Hi Jeremy, I got my CJ 8 Frame in today, very pleased with the way it was constructed!
Thanks again Kyle
Hi Jeremy, Jason Kirouac here from BC. Just wanted to show you a few pictures of your frame...i just brought it home from the body shop. It's painted a copper color.
Thanks again for such a great job!
Hi Jeremy, Here are Pictures of my 1979 CJ-7 after my frame swap with your frame. .
Hi Jeremy, I received the frame on Friday. It is a work of modern art. It is going to work better than expected, and well worth the wait. Weld quality and fit are outstanding. Once I get running gear installed, I will shoot a couple photos to email you for your marketing.
Thanks again for such a great job!
Here are two photos of a TDK frame based CJ. The end result of your frame building talents. I'm proud to have it as the foundation for this project. Everything fit great and the Jeep drives like a new one
I got that 07 Chevy 1500 bumper installed and I and the customer are very happy. You can build one hell of a bumper.
Ryan Kollauf - Kully's Truck Accessories
I just want to drop you a quick note and say thanks for the nice job on the frame. It is a work of art! One of the nicer jobs that I have seen. Somebody in your shop really knows how to weld
Hears a couple pictures for you - Great Product, everything fits perfect.
Ken Paniec, Sparwood B.C.
Today I got the frame - finally!
It's really breathtaking!!!! Wonderful welding work!!!!
Thanks a lot,
A more than satisfied customer
This is our two and a half year ground-up build. We titled it as a 1986 jeep cj-7 hemi, five speed auto with all the best toys. We feel your products had a lot to do with us winning Best of Show and Best Engineered at the Bad Azz Truck Expo in Ionia Michigan. Your TDK frame and tube crossmember made my build and installation of the body, engine, tranny, transfer case and axles easier than I thought possible. Completed May 25th 2008. It’s the best handling vehicle I’ve driven – BAR-NONE! The frame is one of the biggest compliments we get from people.
Dan and Fran Mitchell
I finally got my bumper painted and installed. I thought maybe you would want some pics since you don’t have any on the website. Awesome product!!
The Hell Hound is one sweet looking machine. Keep up the good work.
Attached is my almost-completed ground up build on a wide-track CJ7. Note the TDK hot-dipped galvanized frame!
Jeremy, I just wanted to let you know we received the frame today for the CJ8 ordered through Morris 4x4. It is beautiful. We measured and x,ed it out, and it is right on the money. The welds are top quality, and i dont think anyhting other than a collision would hurt this frame! If I need anything else I'll definitely call you in the future. I can't wait to get it put in!

I got my cj8 frame in today, very pleased with the way it was constructed! Thanks again,
About a year and a half ago I ordered a CJ3/M38 frame from you. this has been a total build with a combination of M38 Willys military surplus parts, custom parts, and CJ3A parts. Basically I have a new "1950" M38 body style Jeep.
My main components are: M38 body, 327 Chevy, Muncie M22 four speed, Warn Overdrive, Dynatrac axles. It should be a fun machine when I get it all together.

I finally go my first deer last night! Coming back from Sidney at about 2:00AM, the ol' girl ran right out in front of me. Unfortunately, even though there was a plethora of deer, most of them had been hanging in the ditch for the past 200 miles. I was running out of miles and started to worry that Iwas going to make it all the way home with another boring, uneventful trip, but just within the last 40 miles, there she was, right in the middle fo th road! Centereing the intimidating TDK grill guard on her, it was a "dead" center hit about 50 mph! (Woulda taken her out at 70, but ya gotta give them at leasta chance to get off the road, right? ha, ha).
No damage to the truck. She didn't even clean the grasshoppers off the TDK where I hit her.
Thanks again, Jeremy. You saved me thou$ands!
Here's a picture of the bupmer installed. Just wanted to say thanks for a product made with such high quality and precision. Fit up was easy and it looks awesome. A lot of people ask me where I found such a great looking and well built bumper. I don't know how many of your bumpers are on Midwest trucks, but word ofmouth travels fast. Keep up the good work!
I wanted to thank you for the awesome CJ7 Frame. I was thoroughly impressed with the quality. As I am converting my CJ5 into a CJ7 with a YJ tub. Everything lined up perfectly.
Exceeded my Expectations Dan Woltmann Wanted to thank you again for the bumper, I threw in a couple pictures of my truck if you wanted to use them on your web site. The bumper exceeded my expectations.
Excellent Job! Nice to see someone knows how to build with quality! Your work is superior to others! Topped off with Rigid Lights.., perfect!
Hi Jeremy. I love my bumper. It's the talk of the town. Looks great. Hope to send more your way. Thank you! !
A quick note to express my thanks to you for the great fab job on the bumper and mounting plate. The welds are among the best I have seen over the years. The powder coater wanted to know who did the welding since there was no one around here with that kind of talent.
St. George, UT
We'd like to tell you how happy we are with the TDK bumper we put on our new 2012 F-450 SuperDuty 4x4 Ambulance. We were told it was a big hit at the factory in Florida and we have had countless compliments on it since taking delivery. The quality is exceptional and we were happy to support such a wonderful, American Made product! It will no doubt help us get ourselves and our patients safely to our destinations for many years to come.
Please feel free to send any future customers our way for a referral. Here are some pictures taken on the day we took delivery. Keep up the great workmanship.

Here's a picture of the new bumper I got from ya last month. I'm real happy with the looks of it and most of all the great craftsmanship and ease of installation. Thanks
Hi Jeremy, I just wanted to say thanks for good customer service and for packaging my new bumper so well. I would gladly recommend your company to any of my buddies. Thanks again i've attaced a picture of the bumper installed on my truck.
Ken Rent here. Just wanted to send you an email in follow up. My CJ5 Frame arrived yesterday without incident. I have to say i'm very impressed with the workmanship and attention to detail. A well built item and obviously better then original.
Also wanted to commend you and your customer service. I was concerned about sending such an unusual item so far. The entire process was completely painless despite the distance and croos-boarder shipping.
Its nice to be a customer of a business that takes pride in their products and follows through to the end.

Wanted to sedn you phtos of the CJ all done too. turned out great and everything lined right up.
Very nice. Thanks for the fast turn around. As you can see I added the rear view camera. Drilling a 7/8" hole in steel takes a while. Installation was a breeze. I like the drilled and tapped holes for the trailer light plug and tag. Nice touch.
Michael C. Robitzsch
I just wnated to thank you again for your great work. Your frame is exceptionally well crafted. So far everything has assembled very nicely. My friends and family have all been very impressed with how my Jeep rebuild is turning out and it is all thanks to your product
Here are a few pictures of this summer's progress. Just need to get some bodywork done and put the rest of it together next summer
Blenheim, Ontario, Canada
The TDK frame is great. Much stronger than the factory frames and all the welds were perfect and it was spot on for square. This thing looks great, and thanks to Jeremy and his guys, my Jeep will easily be on the road for another 15+ years. THANKS!
Your bumpers are TOP quality. Thank you.
