Has anyone had any experience ordering from this company. I'm looking to order a new tire swing and they are the only catalog in which I can find one. I live in Canada and I wanted to know how reliable they are...Thanks - Andrew

Andrew, I've never had a problem with them. Good customer service.

Just my experience.

After market or OEM? Rovers North sshould have the OEM swings and Atlantic British might have the Mantec.

I contacted them regarding this carrier. I was only told that the top hinge mounts to the body capping.

I wouldn't install it without additional bracing from the inside to transfer the load to the frame.

I have dealt ith them several times and they have always been good.

I've also had no problems with them. Got their HD brake kit last week. Installed it this weekend.

Yes, I inquired because the price is good but didn't get all the info I need: can you use the rear bumper, what kind of joint at the door and a pic without the wheel mounted. In the end I think I'll go with the Mantec unit. It's tried and true.

I used them once - they supplied the wrong part - they should have said there were three versions but didnt. also said no refund, but I phoned them up and they refunded me OK (I had to pay postage to/from canada and duty clearance twice though).

Have you checked with Disco-tech.ca? In BC. free delivery to alberta at least.
