Around our shop!

Hello I'm James.

I own Ares Fabrication. My shop builds hard core Jeep off road products. We have been doing it for sometime. I have been wanting to do a thread about my shop for a while. We are on Instagram, twitter, and Facebook almost every day letting our followers know what we are doing. We make post on all sorts of stuff like prototypes, builds, ideas, drawings, shipping, our tools, etc. The goal is to make your experience with us more personal. And to make better products. We are going to do the same thing on the forums. Feedback and constructive criticism is always appreciated but not necessary. I would also love to hear your ideas. If you want a product built that we don’t build. We will look into it. Heck I used to only build CJ and Wrangler parts until one day someone asked me to build them a XJ front bumper. Now our XJ line is the most popular.

XJ armor! Here is something we are working on. I'm sick of my competitors make garbage for the XJ Jeeps. Take this upper quarter armor. My competitors tell there customers that the have to use the mounting hardware to bend the 11 gauge armor to contour the 18 gauge body. Hmm that not how that works. What happens is the body deflects to fit the armor. Putting way to much stress on the mounting hardware. Making them pull out over time. They give you a flat piece where we have 12 bends in this piece. 10 of them are 1 degree bend. Giving you a contoured armor. A little extra work but way worth it.

This is what I'm thinking about for the light box. It does brake, stop, turn and reverse.

Lots of people have been asking about my rear XJ bumper. Here it is on one of my favorite Jeeps. I love the 2 door XJs. It is laser cut from 3/16 plate. It's broke into shape with a CNC press brake. We have them in stock and ready to go.

Thanks for doing it right, not only the quality in your products, but becoming a vendor here on JF.
Means a lot, so on the G2G list I share with others.

Thanks for the kind words. I have been a vendor here for a while now. I love this forum.

Made a grill this weekend for an XJ customer. So here is my take on the XJ grill. It is made of 14 ga steel. Laser cut out of pickled in oil cold roller steel. CNC boxed panned press broke for rigidity. There are 7 bends in total on this one. I am pretty happy with this one. This one is on a 84-96 XJ. For some reason Jeep made those with 8 slots so the customer wanted to keep that theme going here. I will be making and stocking them in 7 slots. And there may be an option for custom openings. Maybe even custom logos for clubs or what have you. 97 and up is next.

I would like to take a little time to talk to everyone about sales and discounts. I don't usually have them. It is very very rear. Here is why. There is a formula for figuring out what manufactures are supposed to charge customers. I use that formula and then take 20%-25% off. In a since I am always have a sale. The reason I do this is everyone deserves to get a good deal. Some people have money when other don't. Take Black Friday. Most of my wheeling buddies can't buy anything on this day because they need to buy stuff for there families. Then after Christmas when they have the money there are no sales until tax returns. But some people have to pay taxes at that time of year. So there goes there sale again. I can go on and on about this. I have been there. That why I run my company the way I do. This is the first time I have disclosed that info to people. Look at my prices. Our prices are lower then any manufacture that I know of. They do come close during there sales, but I still beat there prices.

Do you have a dimple die for the grill slots? Make them way stiff with out any added weight.

That would be super slick. Wonder what it would cost to have a tool and die maker crank out a set of dimple dies for that slot.. complete with the slight bend at the lower part.

Nice work nevertheless!!

Hey Eddie, Whats up? I have been meaning to contact you. Haven't heard from you in a while. I will send you an email tomorrow.

I doubt it would be cost effective. I can ask. But I got a ridiculous price before on some oval dimple dies for my press. So we will see. Plus the are 2 different years to do. This simple little grill has turn in to something very complicated. I love it though. Better then just a flat piece on the front. And it will take a rock. I am thinking about doing them in 1/8 now. This is the only 14 ga stuff I use right now. Might be easier just beef it up.
