However if a SG tire carrier was installed without doing that step it would flex the body all to hell.
Any options for ROW trucks?

Thanks Mike and no problem. Rovers North sells a version but it's just not as clean. A little cutting tho and it the RN one might work for my application.

Not currently.
We don't see very many ROW trucks in the shop so parts for them would not be good sellers here and potentially not worth the development/production costs.

What we are doing is getting products that our customers/projects here in the shop want, and if we can help offset those costs by selling some of those same products mail order as well, all the better.

We really aren't trying to dive into covering the entire market.
Its really just about getting the parts we need here in the shop.

Will your rear corner guards be compatible with the rear step bumper?

Good to hear Mike. Can the front bumpers be used with different kinds of skid plates?

We have made arrangements that will help supply our version of the Safari Gard front bumper, rear quarter tub guards, tire carriers and more. In the past we have had to make these bumpers in house here at ECR (because we could not get them from the original supplier), and as it is clear (to us) that the original supplier is defunct, we have worked out an arrangement with Safety Devices to make these products. ECR will be selling the products in the US and we have already lined up a popular west coast (US) distributor so that no matter where you live you will be able to get product easily. Production by Safety Devices will allow us to reduce the costs considerably, and Safety Devices will be selling these products throughout Europe as well.
We are happy to bring these products back the open market and look forward to helping you with your bumper and protection needs.

Thanks!
ECR

I missed out on buying a Safarigard spare tire carrier. Glad to see that you will be picking up where they dropped the ball. I am interested in getting something more sturdy to hold my spare and gas cans.
When do you expect to be selling?

Mike, will your rear tire carrier system work with the SD racks? Or will you run into the same issues as the Safari Guard set up?

Nope, same issue.
With the SD racks now truly NLA we aren't going to worry about a redesign for that issue, sorry.

No worries. It's a nice looking piece. I guess I need to decide if I want to use my SD rack or not !

Don't your own racks use the same rear ladder system?

Are any of these planned for the upcoming SD container? Also, any update on timing/pricing?

Thanks!

MIKE,

On the older SG versions there was a slight modification to the 90 frame to fit. Is that still required? Also to save shipping can one be purchased directly form your location? I have a ARB and have always wanted to upgrade to that Bumper thanks for making it available again...

Removal of the factory jacking point is still required.

Yes, once ready, they can be picked up at ECR. That does add 5% state sales tax though.
