You can't go wrong with Nakatanenga. And you are buying from Brendan, he's a great guy, stands behind all his products.

You will have a little mod to make on the bottom bracket if you are fitting it with a NAS rear bumper.

I chickened out. The price was too rich for me in the end. Ended up with a Mantec.

They definitely appeal to my "overbuild" nature. Stainless, an insane weight carrying capacity, plus no drilling into the capping. I would consider putting a group buy together if there was enough interest. Pricey, yes, but worth every penny.

Those are nice but I need gas can storage, high lift and pull pal mounts.. Plus single swing if possible. (I take the kids to school and that's how we load the back seats )
So custom I assume...

Is there a swing gate tire carrier out there that you can swing it open without opening the rear door? Meaning one that does not permanently attach to the rear door.

Thanks

Agreed,

I am actually just amped that he is bringing their stuff over so I can shop their catalouge.

I am really interested in the lockable footwell containers as an option for replacing mine (and adding some soundproofing while I am at it!)

Those footwell lockers are for puma's only...working with Peter to hopefully get them for the pre-Puma vehicles *soon*. I agree, will be great to have more storage. Along these lines, already stocking the cubby box safes shown below that go underneath the cubby and hinge up for secure/additional storage (and working on some custom-config mounting plates for switches/etc):

Present and accounted for . As Chris deZ pointed out, he's going to be mounting his pretty soon to a NAS truck if you're looking for any pics/feedback/etc. In the meantime any questions at all just let me know...

That's pretty nice. Wasn't there a board member who made something similar? If I could only remember his name...

I think this is my next product that I am going to buy. Uninstalled parts for my truck are piling up but this tire carrier is nice. I have only seen pictures and read various reviews but it is really really nice.

I have one issue that I may have figured out by myself already but I figured I would ask the group.

I have a custom 110 soft top. The rear door is just a standard wagon door cut off down. I am pretty sure that I will not be installing drop down tail gate in the future. Which carrier should I choose.

Soft Top or standard?

btw, being that my truck is the way it is is another reason that I am probably going with this tire carrier. The soft top is in the way where other carriers seem to mount on the upper body.

Thoughts anyone.
