I would like to know if you are finish with the ROW version. I would like to get one with the jerry can platform. Do you have any photos? I would like to get it next month before I get Wolf to make a rack for me.

Row

I think at this point I am not going in the direction of a ROW just because the shop will take forever to retool. IIf you are willing to put NAS round brake lights in each lower corner than the rack will work for you perfectly and keep a low profile with 2 jerry can holders.

One left

I still have one of the first gen in a box ready to go. It also comes with the adjustable arm (dogbone) so that your carrier will swing away with the rear door. This one is for a 94/95 soft top. It looks exactly like the one in the original post. Price is $725 shipped CONUS. or if someone will consider it in a partial trade for a used badger 1 FDS.

Scott and Todd,
Thank you for the interest. The shop that I used to make them is SSSSSSSSSuuuuuuuuuuuuuupppppppppeeeeeeerrrrrrrrr Slow. So if I can find another shop to do them I will open up for deposits. Should be a carrier that will also fit ROW vehicles by moving the spare tire over to accomodate the upper rear passenger's side corner capping. I will keep you posted. My new baby girl has got our household jumping.

Won't take much to convert the fuel tank tray into a changing table......

I'm down for a ROW tyre carrier.

I wish you guys made bull/nudge bars ( cheaper thanARB).

Lol. Just wait until you change on in the bathroom of a 747... Even less space.
Yup I'm a member of the diaper changing mile high club. Fwiw, that kid graduates HS next year.

Thank you! This is baby number 2 as the little guy is now 27 months old. All boy and built like a tank. I am debating on turning him into a car enthusiast or not. Its bad when you can go through some other kids hot wheels car set that even with mising paint and guess right what the year make and model of those things are - it is like wasted space on a hard drive sometimes - like who really gives a sh#t if I can tell all the different year groupings of VW bettles, or what the options were on a 240 Volvos. I stopped car spotting in front of the wife as I think she was board. She did like the latest Ferrari California and I did pull the Jedi mind trick when she wanted a Z3 and I talked to into the M Roadster

The 3rd brake lights and carriers came from my desire to replace mind so why not have the rest of you chumps foot the bill for my carrier...of course I needed at least 7 of you to buy them so I can get mine for free. so there real is no profit motive which is why I got the stink eye on the 110 bumpers from the wife "are you really making any money on those" "o Yeah" is always the right answer where in truth I wanted to junk punch myself evertime the shop delayed the production.

I could look into bull nudge bars but then that would piss off the guys who are making them as I choose to do things that no one was touching. Like Todd, I am a CPA who was doing this for giggles and if I start to step on toes of the real guys who have put time and effort into there designs such as Rockware I would be stirring the pot.

The shop is currently sitting (not fixing) a Safety device rack that has some rust so if they ever get caught up I can get another run in. I may try to meet with another fabricator who I got a line on..it is just this small thing called a job that gets in the way of my fun!!!

off to college

Chris,
I dread the day that these two graduate highschool. They are so fun right now and I wouldn't miss a day spending it with them. They bring a lot of joy to the household especially my son's laugh.
You are probably ready for a little alone time with the other half and most likely after college they will return home saying that they want to save money for awhile LOL "so can I have my old room back" which is just about the time you have a routine around that does not involve a third wheel.

Super Stooookkkedd. Looks like 2nd gen design for NAS and ROW is going to push forward as I just met with another manufacturer. Please PM if your interested. If anyone in SD area has an ROW truck can I please come buy and look at it so I can get the top bracket right for the upper brake light.

Possibly interested depending on final specs.

1. Did you shift the tire towards the center?
2. One or two can shelf?
3. Shelf on right or left of the tire?
4. Any pics of 2nd GEN?
