$600 NAS Style Rear Step Bumpers on Ebay

There is a fairly new listing on E-bay for new step / 2" receiver bumpers for $600 which seems reasonable. I have asked the seller a few questions and on the plus side he says they build them as a class 3 hitch. The photo in the listing shows a black top but when I asked them to verify if they come with a black top pad he said it would be silver checkerplate. They also did not really answer my questions about bracket arm options for different vehicle types (110 vs 90). So the inconsistencies make me a little hesitant to just order one. The photo sort of looks like a Britpart or Bearmack stock footage photo too.
Does anyone know who is selling these and if they are reputable? They are in Safety Harbor, Florida.

If the e-bay seller is a member here and sees this post: no disrespect intended, just don't want to send $ to someone who does not know a 90 from a 110 and is just re-selling something they get from E-bay UK. On the other hand, maybe this is the guy who just bought the template a few weeks ago.

That picture was taken by me at the old ECR shop by the way.
So don't go into it thinking that is the exact product.

Pretty sure they ripped the 2nd photo from us... I would be very careful.

Zack, if I were fabbing those up, I'd shoot the pics with a fisheye lens...

Are you making them for 90 and 110s. The site is vague.

Both, you just specify which you have when ordering.

Thanks for the comments - unless someone pipes in with something new this confirms my suspicion.
Someone else want to order one of these and post comments about how it goes ??? I don't have an extra $600 to spend on another boat anchor and these are too big to make a good paperweight.

looks like one of the cheap UK bumpers. They juste the term "NAS bumper" for any tube style step bumper, but they don't have the integrated bracing to the frame, rather bolt on bars. Usually a cheap painted finish, but there are several different ones out there. Not sure if any one is better or worse than the other.

The ebay seller did respond to my request to remove the picture. The email said that they were sent the images from the manufacture and they re-posted them on ebay.
Time will let if they remove the swiped image (not that I can do anything about that kind of thing, but at least they responded).
