Just got myself a custom 2-string bass guitar.

It doesn't have a truss rod, but the neck is pretty darn thick!

I'd like to set it up in Drop A tuning (Low A; Standard E). I will very likely be putting a 0.135 for the low A string.

Would the lack of a truss rod be a problem for this? Thanks in advance!

It probably won't be a problem with just two strings and that tree trunk of a neck, but only time will tell.

Having seen a few thick necked Wish basses without truss rods, I don't think this is going to end well..
Maybe I'm an asshole for asking this, but what is the actual point of this instrument?
Dare I ask why you commissioned a bass guitar that doesn't have a truss rod, 2 strings and seems to be put together by someone who had very little idea what they were doing?

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.
Is it a one piece neck? Thru body? What scale? With 2 strings tuned low you might be okay... With that body style and meaty neck it must dive like mad.
