Hello, Sam here with JBugs.com Whether you're fabricating a sand rail from scratch, building a Baja bug or dune buggy, or installing a roll cage in your drag bug, strength, safety and weight savings are normally top considerations.


Dimple dies are a great way to do that as they require a drilled hole which lightens. Then the flares edge of the dimple died hole provides strength and rigidity to a panel or brace. Dimple died panels are commonly used to tie a roll cage to the body of a car, as braces for shock towers or mounts, and on nerf bars on rock or skid rails.


We offer dimple dies from 1/2 inch up to three inch diameters to cover most fabrication needs. Dimple dies are made of 8620 alloy steel for strength and durability, and will flare Chromalloy steel up to 1/8 of an inch thick. Dimple dies can be used with a bench vice for thinner materials or with a hydraulic press for thicker materials.


Let's be honest they add a trick, custom look to your project. The dimple die sets can be purchased online along with many other off road parts, wheels, tires and off road accessories at JBugs.com
