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.
Moot point if you can't even order the product, get in contact with him or if there's a 12+ week lead time.

Too many moving parts in my opinion which would likely lead to wobbling when you're taking it off-road and it would probably stick out a great deal more than a dedicated swing out tire carrier.

I agree it would stick out quite a bit more. The Rig'd looks to be far better built than this one, but for $1200 aren't we getting into bumper territory? I didn't catch what this one costs.

Hrm, not sure if I'm missing something, but the majority of swing out bumpers are well over $2K and some easily push up towards $3K by the time you put on all the accessory carriers you'd want. $1200 to $1500 could probably get you into a plain rear bumper with no swing-outs.

Closer to $3k, wow I had no idea.

I was lucky enough to get in on the Rig'd Ultraswing pre-orders, it was $825 w/ free shipping!!! There was a minor blemish due to shipping and Rig'd gave me the option of sending it back or getting a $150 credit. Again they have FANTASTIC customer service and always respond to emails. Although they are a small operation I think it works since they don't do the fabrication work or powder coating themselves. All they need to do is answer questions, take orders and push them out.

Most swing out bumpers are in that range. I think the cheapest you might get is a Shrockworks on a group buy which would be around $2200. Most dual swing-outs you can expect in the $2500-$3500+ range.

Still Waiting

I placed my order on January 8th and I'm still waiting for mine to show up. The few times Mark did reply to my emails he mentioned having supply issues because of the pandemic as well. I thought it was just happening to me. At one point he did offer me a refund but I'm going to wait it out. I think his design is the best one available for 4runners.

10 month delay... that's loyalty. Sheesh! I wonder where he is sourcing his steel.
