All of you with the Detours swing mount: are you still happy with it? I'm thinking of ordering one as an interim till I can sell a kidney and buy a proper rear bumper. This one should work just fine for now, and I'll be able to get my spare from under the truck.

Hi this is just I have been looking for!
Couple questions tho...
1 What does it weigh?
2. What wall thicknesses are the long tubes?
3. Any flex in the tubes?

Thanks

Swing-Out Tire Carrier Hitch Off-Road | Install & Review | 5th Gen 4Runn

My swing out just arrived...snapped a few pics before I dropped it off for powder coating. I have requested for a pin to hold the swing out in place to prevent it from moving when itís swung open. He also added a rotopax mount behind the tire. Canít wait to get this back from powder coat...

How long did it take for you to receive yours? I'm right around 6 weeks right now.

I ordered mine December 30th....He had some issues with supplies plus I added some last minute add-ons. This is my second hitch carrier I ordered from him, the first one took 8 weeks (Knucklebone) which was about the same estimate he gave me. He's a one man show, so I was glad I ordered it winter time when I'm not in a rush.

Has anyone tried contacting the seller lately? I've sent multiple emails and fb messages last few weeks and haven't heard anything. Is he still making these?

Odd he isn't responding. He's normally really responsive. He currently is not taking new orders. He isn't able to get accurate ETAs on supplies and didn't feel right trying to guess at ETAs for orders. He's most responsive through Facebook messenger but like others mentioned he is just a one man operation.

For reference I ordered the swingout carrier April 10th with a 8-10 week ETA. He did tell me it may get pushed back due to the pandemic. Now at 14 weeks he said he is getting close but still no specific ETA.

He has been extremely responsive to messages and has been willing to issue a full refund if I wanted out of it.

Thanks. If he is not taking new orders then that explains why he's not responding.

Non responsive

I ordered mine in June. It's been 15 weeks now. I was told 10-12 weeks. Seller will not answer messenger or his website. I will have to file a Paypal dispute to get my money back. Sucks because I already purchased and installed a new back up camera.

Dispute it, cancel order and get the Rig'd instead. I had one and eventually sold it after I got a full rear bumper replacement but I got in on the early release edition version. Had a few issues and those guys responded immediately and gave me credit to their store for the mistake. Not only that but they are very active on social media and you can see what they're up to. Apparently they just moved into a new bigger shop and hired more hands since they are swamped with orders but well stocked.

This is how a shop should look

I've filled out their website form (D of Maine) several times over the past 10 days and no response. Basically saying "let me place an order"...so sad they can't even respond with "be patient, it will take a while" or anything at all really... The website is beyond basic with no real product info, and how hard would it be to have an automated email response? I understand he is a one man shop, but he clearly needs some IT help...

Regardless of cost differences, my preference is to go with Maine to be as close as possible to the 4runner body. I don't need all the accessories that would make having a larger gap desirable.

You pretty much have to contact him on fb. He should reply in a day or two.

Interesting.... I'm not clear on why you would not just use a 1UP RakAttach (Rated for 250lbs) and a hitch mount tire carrier. Seems it would be less of a struggle to pick up the tire with the hitch mount already attached to it and pop it in the swing out.
