Frequently Asked Questions: Barnes 4x4 Parts
Barnes 4wd’s Manufacturing Quality and Product Selection
Why should I choose Barnes 4wd parts? Barnes 4wd is all about fit, form, function, quality, and of course, customer service and satisfaction. We engineer our custom off-road parts for maximum durability, while always considering the affordability and adaptability needed by DIY fabricators. If you want to learn more about the history and values of Barnes 4wd, please visit our About Us page.
How are your parts made? All of our parts are engineered by Barnes 4wd’s owner, Brad Barnes. His experience with custom fabrication and off-road performance has given Brad the knowledge necessary to create 4x4 parts using high-end materials and precise engineering practices:
- Materials: Barnes steel products are made of 50k tensile strength steel or higher (compared to competitors, who often use 36k). Barnes also offers Ultra 100, off-road parts made using only 100,000 minimum yield strength steel. Furthermore, all aluminum parts are made of 6061-T6 aluminum. Our bracketry, tabs, bumpers, skids plates, and rocker guards are all U.S. made.
- Engineering: All metals are laser cut and bent on a CNC press brake. Our custom Jeep parts are engineered using 3D CAD models direct from Jeep; allowing us to design products with exact fit and function.
Which vehicles/models do your parts fit? Barnes 4wd strives to engineer parts for DIY enthusiasts working on various types of rigs. While much of our hardware, mounts, DOM tubing, bracketry, heim joints, and other accessories can be modified for just about any fabrication, we currently manufacture custom parts for the following: Jeep JK (2007- Current), TJ – LJ 1997- 2006, YJ 1987-1996, CJ 1976- 1986; selected models of Ford, Dodge, Toyota, and GM; and vehicles needing Dana specific parts.
