Ecotechne traction device hood rack

Curious to know if anyone is running the Ecotechne hood rack? Looks like the newer version ships with mounting brackets/pins? I’m running a full LFD rack and roofnest test, so I’m looking at other locations for maxtrax, the other being in the rear on my baja ladder and the blue ridge overland traction bag.

Visibility is bad enough as it is. I don't think I'd want them on my hood.

There actually may be enough room under the hood to fit them either on the bottom or mounted on top where the engine cover plastic thing is.

Very good point. My 4th Gen 4Runner had a much more sloped hood and the taller 5th Gen hood is making think about a forward facing camera.

I would not want to have my vision blocked as in the picture below

I'm sure it does wonders for fuel consumption as well.

I don’t think that company is known for quality.
There have been a lot of complaints about them on here.

There’s a vendor here who has been working on their version of one of these for a while. I keep asking for it but it still isnt ready. If Ecotechne was here in the US I would of bought theirs though. I just can’t see myself sending $500 to Venezula

I would think it's f**k*ng annoying and obstructive but it looks dope on his wild a** truck.

Personally I would go for something like this. Joe's Original Equipment.
