Dealer FAQ

What makes Throttle Down Kustoms' products special?

There are a lot of little things that set us apart, but the big differences are:

  • Our build quality is second to none. You won't find better welding on a rival bumper.
  • We offer custom configurations, including a ready-to-paint finish. You don't have to accept ordering from a limited set of configurations. Custom orders allow for a powder coated or ready-to-paint finish, configuration options on fog lights and parking sensors, and more.
  • Our products are 100% Made In The USA. We use US steel, and we build our products at our shop in Montana.
  • TDK bumpers have an excellent reputation for quality and innovation. You'll never have to apologize for selling and/or installing one of our products.

Why do you offer bumpers without powder coat or paint?

One of the things that makes TDK different is that we sell steel bumpers in a ready-to-paint finish. We remove all swirl marks, shrink wrap the bumper, and then ship it off. To paint it, all you need to do is remove the plastic.

This is important because it allows customers to replace their painted OEM bumper with a painted, heavy-duty alternative. It also allows customers to customize their trucks. Instead of the same old black powder coat you see on every other steel bumper, you can have a wild color.

Of course, we offer three colors of powder coat finish, too.

What makes the TDK dealer program special?

We don't sell to distributors or other middlemen - our dealer program is for installers. Whether you're running a body shop that sees a lot of trucks, a towing accessories shop, or an off-road shop, TDK bumpers are a great addition to your existing line-up.

In addition to our regular dealer program, we offer a premier program. If approved, you'll receive additional discounts as well as flexible payment terms.

Do you have a minimum order/stocking requirements?

For our regular dealer program, TDK does not impose restrictions. There is no minimum order or stocking requirements. Order what bumpers you need when you need them! If you’d like to stock a few of our bestselling bumpers, we will advise you on what’s best for your customers.

If you're part of the premier program, we ask that you commit to an annual minimum. However, the premier program offers additional discounts and flexible payment terms.

What is the markup on TDK products?

We offer an excellent markup because we don’t have distributors or other middlemen taking a cut. The exact markup will depend on whether you're part of the regular or premier dealer program. We are competitive with other steel bumper manufacturers, while offering more customization and better quality.

Do you offer drop shipping?

Yes, we do offer drop shipping. To order a bumper, it’s as easy as placing the order on our website.

What is the warranty coverage?

Your customers receive a lifetime warranty, and we will manage all warranty inquiries so you don’t have to.

Where are TDK bumpers made?

All of our products are handmade in the USA (Moore, Montana to be specific). TDK bumpers are MIG welded by hand by certified, trained professionals at our facility. We use US PNO steel, too.
