    Hey everyone, I’m Brian from Victory4x4! We are a manufacturer located in Michigan. We operate out of 32,000sqft. We do all of our cutting, bending, welding, powder coating in house. Some of you might know our sister company, JcrOffroad, which has made Jeep armor for almost 16 years.

    Just picked up a Tundra 5 weeks ago and are planning to dive in on a full product lineup.

    Current plan of attach is:
    - Sliders (as many gens and configurations as we can get our hands on).
    - Bumpers, 3rd gen first.
    - Bed Rack
    - Skids, 3rd gen first.
    - misc other things as we go.

    What would you like to see produced for the Tundra? Or things you think the market is missing?

    We’ve started on sliders this week. We are going to be switching from the 2x2 box main tune to a 3x2 box. We feel that will give additional strength in the un-supported rear overhang.

    4 mounting legs, frame plates wrap under the frame for additional strength.

    Should have the final prototype sometime next week.

    An affordable dual battery tray in the stock location would be awesome.

    We’ve always just gone with the Genesis kit. By the time you buy all the components and a tray, you are pushing the cost of their fully complete kit.

    I am using a Blue Sea ACR just to isolate and charge my fridge battery in the bed. I agree that the Genesis kit is a great solution especially if you have a lot of accessories...... I just don’t have a need for all the bells and whistles.

    Welcome Brian! Congrats on the new rig!

    Like any good competitive market, it will come down to quality, price and customer service. Of the items you've listed, there's a number of good quality product lines out there. I'm definitely interested to see what u come up with and the respective price points.

    Few thoughts for other products....
    Some of the lesser seen items are the bed stiffener products; in the bed aroun the tail gate, behind tail light to bumper.
    Also, for front bumber area; maybe something like a reinforced center piece with hidden winch, or solid piece that kept more OEM style look.

    The park sensors and blind spot sensors are a PITA. On top of that, Toyota won’t work with aftermarket to recalibrate them even if we made a solution. Because of that, they become too big of a liability for aftermarket companies to retain them.

    We are a premium product. Our pricing will be fair, but we won’t be cheap. The big thing you will find out, because of our infrastructure, we will redefine what lead times should be in the Toyota market. You should never have to make two car payments before you get your product. In the Jeep market, we operate on about 7-10 days for non-stock items.

    Welcome Brian. It's always good to see new sources. You mentioned skids for 3rd gens. The skids you are going to make will fit on the 2nd gen too.:thumbsup:

    @brimy311 Welcome! Sliders look awesome (does it cover to the rear wheel wells?), but I agree on the dual battery option. I’ve emailed Xfaktr, but I’ve gotten NO response. What is the pricepoint of the sliders for a crewmax?

    Lost track after #1.
    Can you get some shots of how they mount underneath, specifically towards the back where the crossmember fits? I'm looking at going with the skid plates from BudBuilt (http://budbuilt.com/2007-2018-Tundra-Rock-Armor--Stage-3_p_639.html) and the sliders that wrap under the frame can sometimes interfere with those plates and aren't compatible.

    Also, is the main slide rail sticking out from the rocker panel? If so I'd like to see that tucked under the body more so it provides direct protection along the entire rocker panel.

    Affordable sliders. I understand a high price point to recoup R&D, but you will sale more in the end and get more eyes on your product if you have a lower price point.

    We don’t price to recoup R&D. We price based on the material cost and cost of various operations and labor costs.

    Just give us 6 weeks or so, we’ll have full underbelly skids that will work with our sliders.

    First and foremost is American made quality. Our products are fabricated by skilled American workers using mostly American made equipment.

    Next is fitment. We design all of our products to install as easy as possible. We always strive for bolt on application with minimum drilling. We also supply all hardware needed for installations.

    On our powder coat finish, we offer a zinc base primer that gives you 5000 salt spray hours. Then coupled with the top coat, extending the spray level to 7000 hours. Most companies will only offer the top coat, when the base primer is the most important part.

    Customer service and lead times are something else we excel at. We have three full time employees that can assist a customer with orders, questions and issues. We take customer service seriously!

    As I previously stated, you shouldn’t make 2-3 truck payments before you receive the product you ordered and paid for. Because we do everything in house (cutting, bending, welding, coating) we can operate in a 2-4 week lead time.

    I started JcrOffroad nearly 16 years ago in my moms garage. Today, we are one of the industries leading armor manufacturer. Feel free to google us and see for yourself. Victory4x4 will be bringing all of the JCR disaplines to the Toyota market.

    I get it. But let’s be honest, this isn’t Walmart. I can’t sell 80,000 sets of tundra sliders a year. This is a niche market. Not every tundra owner is looking for Offroad style protection. You will find us competitive, but at the end of the day, we have to make money.
