Something to keep an eye out for. Looks like Becky got some competition.

For the price I said I was willing to pay! Anybody heard of them before?

Interesting, priced well, but reminds me of an Erector Set in both design and thickness of the metal used. I will be waiting to see a review and more pictures.

I didn't see the thickness listed - have a link to the specs?

Well i called today and left a voicemail. If/when they call back I'll ask about thickness along with a few other questions I have.

I'm ready to pull the trigger on one once I can satisfy a few curiosities.
Make sure to ask them if they have any type of support for the door.

Finally a solution that's priced right. But I agree it needs a door support. Subbing to this one...

They finished their license plate/rear camera add-on. I would find a way to locate the camera in the center of the spare wheel. I am assuming the Baja rock light is their substitute for the reverse light.

Spoke to the owner today - very nice and happy to discuss the product.

Sounds like they're a fabrication shop with a passion for the GX.

The mount is made of 1/8" steel. Gusseted properly and i don't see any issues.

They're are 1/8" backing plates to support the mount.

The system is modular and designed to support a soon-to-be released hi lift and rotopax mounts.

I'm going to give it a go. More to follow...
