This company started as Backwoods Bumpers back in 2007 inside a shop in Evan House’s backyard in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Ten years later, with just four full-time employees, the company designed and made a complete line of accessories for most late-model trucks in addition to SUVs, Jeeps and vans. The products became especially popular with truck-modification enthusiasts and overland sprinter van owners.
In 2017, when Evan would merge his company with Springdale-based Chandler Truck Accessories to expand manufacturing capabilities for their line of quality off-road aftermarket steel bumpers. With the merger, Backwoods moved from its original location and into a 65,000 square foot production facility, which allowed for growth and more employees.
Chandler CEO, Chris Chandler, shared Evan’s vision for quality, and the two created Backwoods Adventure Mods. Today, the company designs, fabricates and customizes bumpers and modifications for trucks, Jeeps, SUVs and vans. Despite BAM's success and rapid growth, the Backwoods team holds fast to its roots. A DIY attitude and willingness to take creative leaps inspired Evan to create his first custom bumper and continues to inspire the team today to always push forward with new ideas and products.
