BudBuilt was built out of a 4 wheeling engineer's need for strong well engineered custom parts. Out on the trails people started to ask about the parts, so we started making a few pieces. This grew from a couple handcrafted pieces in Bud's garage in his spare time, to cad designed, fully engineered and fail tested laser cut professional grade off-road armor.
It is our passion at BudBuilt to supply quality bolt on parts that work with the factory tolerances of the vehicles. We test all our products on our rigs before production to ensure a proper fit, and strong performance. Allowing our customers the ability to get out and enjoy the trials without worrying that their protection will fail them.
