My best customer's always tip with some good stuff. It's been crazy busy lately with barely a spare second in the day, and I just want to shout out to how awesome all you guys are for the orders. I've got more cool things coming out soon.. ... See MoreSee Less
What if your throttle and brake assembly was one clean bracket that also mounts the orbital valve? A nice solution to the CH2 chassis kit we make is now available for $275 to give maximum foot room and 9:1 pedal ratio options.
Don't have a CH2 yet? Would you be interested in a universal pedal set for your ride? . Comment below! It's coming soon! ... See MoreSee Less
Dropping an LS in your next project? I've got a modular head plate design that can adapt to your project. . The base head plates in red will run $75 and an oversize outer plate kit you trim to fit your project will run $40. The CH2 specific setup will run $225 with the chassis tabs and rubber bungs included. . These will work with a CBR or TC style steering pump and can be setup with the alternator on the driver or passenger side.
For accessories with the CH2 kit. Here's what's going to work with these head plates. You'll need to shorten the spacers going to the heads by the thickness of the plate your adding here to keep your belt alignment. I'll be working on my own line of brackets soon, but for now, I'm happy to send the business over to Drew at www.GoatBuilt.com for your accessory setup.
I highly recommend setting up the truck spacing. Passenger side alternator relocation bracket 4405 Driver side Truck spacing for CBR pump is bracket 4406 Driver side Truck spacing for TC pump is 4406-TC
I don't recommend the P-Pump to be used on the CH2.
if your going to use these for a different project you can also use the following by shortening up those spacers to the heads. (These are also for the truck spacing)
The 4400-CBR will put the Alt and a CBR pump both on the driver side slightly higher than the stock locations
Monday thoughts. . If you've ever been to my shop, it's probably surprised you at how small it is yet how much equipment is in there. The key has been a careful evolution in the layout and picking the perfect pieces. . When It came time to pick out a fixture table, I chose to do something a little less conventional to help out on space. The table is a #Certiflat #Weldtable and I chose to do the base table in 4' x 6' with 8" sides. This allowed me to grab 4 of the 8" x 8" x 24" Fab Blocks to turn the table into an H shape that is 10' long when needed for chassis fixtures and break it down to the 4 x 6 size for general Fab work to give me a touch more working space. I also cut the roll cart down to where the working height of the top was just 29.5" off the ground which does several things. 1. It makes the height of the chassis very comfortable to work on. 2. It gives me just enough room between the braces to store the Fab blocks when not bolted on. 3. It turns out to be a super handy height to put parts when laying things out. . #BFR #BentFabrications #weldeveryday#fixturetable#certiflat#weldtable#welding #MIG #TIG #Chassis #chassisdesign #smallshop#tightfit #smartchoices...

In AWD it's rear engine.. and the bottom of the chassis will ride about 4" off the ground with the lowered spring kit. It can be set up with offroad tires in more of a rally configuration as well. Or in 2wd it can be front engine with IRS or solid rear axle. It's going to be a very versatile platform that I think people are going to really dig.
I still can't give out a lot of specific details yet. I was hired to design and manufacture the chassis, but these will be sold as welded kits and turn key in several configurations through an upcoming new company to be announced very soon.😎
awd? what drive train? how low are you going to be able to get it?
Welding trash parts.. stepping up the game for our local garbage trucks! . As our business model changes to more production work, it's interesting to see what opportunities have come our way. This type work seems mundane for a top notch fabrication shop that's been focussed on the offroad industry for 20 years, but the reality is, this type work affords the time needed to design even better products that we can put into production for the DIY consumers. . There's some cool stuff in the works, so hide your wallet from the wife, your going to want to keep up with the cool kids!
There's a trend developing in a lot of the pictures of guys out in BFR cars.. there's usually more than one. Once you've wheeled with someone that has a BFR car and see it work, you'll want one too. 😜. It's really cool to see BFR owners hooking up and wheeling together.
@tuckn2s in his CK1 setup for all business and Mark Brancieri out with an original Grunt AT with newly added rear steer together having some fun in the rocks!
Time to start dialing in the new #WrightCNC plasma table! . Faster prototyping, faster product development, almost instant one off brackets.. Although we have been "digital" with laser cut and formed parts for the past several years, this little machine being in house will bring big changes! . #BFR #BentFabrications #CNC #cncplasma #wrightcncusa #hypertherm#plasma...

A little throwback to the first picture I was ever in on the book of faces.
11 years ago racing at Rousch Creek with the first EVO2 we ever built. It was low and mean, and everyone showed up to play to try to qualify for this new race they were calling King of the Hammers.. Lap one was the biggest trail tampon I'd ever witnessed! This race did in fact set us up to go to KOH in 2010 where this little car set the 3rd fastest qualifying time while running on a flat tire the last mile.
Making advances in today's fabrication world requires constant growth of knowledge. The ability to fine tune design work before any material is ever cut To introduce ideas without physically building something is a huge advantage over the past when to show someone a new idea you needed to just build it for them to see. It was mind blowing what could be done in the days of just owning a welding table and a grinder (and still is), I even remember joking about sheet metal work on buggies being so poorly done that I stated the shops that invested into better tooling to do tinwork would quickly stand out and succeed. As we move into this new digital realm, I am once again striving to evolve my business model.
