Its been offroaded a ton, smashed on various obstacles, been in rain and snow, and i've had zero issues with it. Even the $30 rattle can job I did 2 years ago looks great still. Honestly, I still can't figure out why people are paying $1400 for these carriers when this one exists for literally a fraction of the cost.
I wanted the spare to sit closer than the DOM, I couldn't deal with the constant radio silence during the strewn out back and forth with DOM + I couldn't wait +10 months.

That said, $650 is a great price and if you're willing to deal w/ all that - more power to you.

I needed a solution with a few more features, in-hand sooner v. later and was willing to pay more.

Different strokes for different folks.

Point taken. No hate, I'm sure everyone has their own reasons for getting the RIGd. It definitely has more out of the box features and add on options. From a price perspective, I just think that if more people knew about DOM, they would think twice about dropping double the money for the RIGd especially since most people just use these as a way to get their spare out of the stock location (or mall crawl).

I will note that the spare actually sits closer to the hatch on the DOM than any other carrier though

How is the spare sitting closer to the hatch a benefit? The Rigd is not twice as much (for me at least) as I live local to so cal and didnít pay shipping.

I'm not saying it is or isn't a benefit, but for my needs, I wanted a holistically compact/tidy package for: 1) practical space/clearance 2) aesthetics

My hitch carrier from CTNewman for reference:

Tell me you don't off-road without telling me you don't off-road.
