    I know some one that wants to start making these but he wants to know if there might be any interest for them. material:
    6061 aluminum
    Anodized clear or black
    Will get all the details if there is any interest at all.

    Price: it’s not official yet but will be cheaper then what’s out in the market.

    x2! These look good but I already have ABD guards. I would be in for some RXT shock guards though!

    I see. Well I’ll ask but I don’t believe he has icons on his truck so that might be a problem for mock up

    Thanks for the picture. These will be a little different as they can be anodized black and say TRD

    So you are saying that anodizing color and the milling of "TRD" (which is a trademark infringement) is changing the product? We are flattered that you feel our design and product is worth mimicking. I must say it is a little appalling however coming from a forum member on a forum in which we support so much and how much we give back to our members on here.

    I mean, the design of the guard itself is identical, down to the notch we put into the guard for the ABS line. You even marked them "A" and "B" as we have.

    Let me start of with saying Im not the one making these. I just posted for a friend that was curious if any one might buy these. “TRD” trademark infringement isn’t any worries as every one and there baby momma make all sorts of products with “TRD” on them. I see your point and before he desires to sale them I’ll make sure he removes the “A” and “B” from his. The notch u speak of I’m pretty sure ha no way around it as u say that’s for the abs line. I’m not trying to step on any ones toes trust me. Please let me know what else has caught ur attention and we will work around it. If you would like send me a Message and that way I’ll show the guy making them as well.

    Yes to this. I don’t like to support companies that sole profit is made from ripping off other people’s design, even if there aren’t any copyrights or trademarks involved...

    looks to me that these are are IDENTICAL to the SDHQ ones. I would guess that someone ordered a set of theirs and based this design 100% off theirs.

    do something different with them. Make them do something different or “better” in some way. Otherwise good luck.

    I would rather make this a public post so that everybody can see it. I would rather them support the company that supports them and put the R&D into the design than someone who copied our product to try to make a few bucks.

    They guy that’s was looking in to making these isn’t a “company” just a tundra owner that has full access to a machine shop and is doing it as a hobby. He can’t give things away as material isn’t free and bills need to get paid also. I’m it sure how many more ways am ABS sensor can be made. K

    This seems like a product that can’t be designed in many different ways.

    I’m sure that design has been done a ton of times also, they added sdhq to make it their own.

    That’s my thought exactly. Plenty of bread for every one but what do I know.
