Default JB Customs

Who am I?

JB Customs is the off-road division of Fisher Welding Inc.
Fisher Welding is a full millwright/fabrication outfit that was started in the early 80's serving the Tri-State (Ohio/Indiana/Michigan) area, dealing primarily with the agricultural industry, and structural steel. In the past four years I have been working with Fisher Welding and with my passion for off-road vehicles we have created JB Customs.

Here I will post some old project that have been completed. Current projects, and future projects as they come. One day you can see your vehicle on here as well, enjoy. And feel free to post your comments and questions.

I for the record came up with the name JBCustoms(i get 10%), but this guy does great work, I've known him for a lot of years now - real good dude - stands behind his work. He's built many a rock bumpers for my Jeeps over the years. Last year he built me a sweet jungle gym roll cage, and most recently did the leaf spring conversion on the back of my TJ. Nice work buddy! Keep it up!

As you wish!

Last week was busy, this week has been hecktick but the work continues. I was able to begin the front mock up last week, and after the owner looked at the build, it was decided to do something to protect the rear quarters from rock bash. We wanted something a little more than the average 3/16 wrap around fenders, not that they are bad, but something different. So this week, ok today the rear was worked on. this is what was created. enjoy!
