    That rear tire carrier is awesome! Finally some innovation instead of just cosmetics!

    I need that light bar mount! The hilift mount looks great too. I'd love to see how that roof rack mounts! I'm impressed.

    Wonder how long it will take for that bumper & tire carrier to hit the market.

    They stole that design from HD Customs. Yes the company isnt around but still hate seeing knock offs of someone else's hard work.

    It looks like a similar concept, but not a "stolen design".......

    Agreed, hopefully a video of it in use surfaces soon. Doesn't look like that bumper has sensor mounts?

    Its a switchblade style swing down tire carrier. Sure its not an identical design but the idea is stolen and modified just enough to skirt patent laws...

    I like the hood latch lights. Wonder if these could double as turn signals if you were to ditch the fenders...

    Welcome to the world.

    Btw, lucky for us.....didn’t the other company go out of business? I’d complain less if I were you.

    i'm not sure guys, but i don't think i like any of those new designs. maybe if they weren't so square looking and more traditional tube design, they might look better. the side steps look ok tho. everything else just looks like it won't fit in unless you have one of those angry eye grille things. maybe it's a JL thing, and i'm too old school.

    I do not understand your complaint, 99% of products on the market are a knock off to some sort. Someone comes up with a concept and is first to market, if it is successful then others will make similar products, this is why SEMA is huge and full of 1000's of vendors. It is only a stolen design if they literally got a copy of the blueprints and started producing the same product under a different name. It is possible Go Rhino and the other company that went out of business struct a deal to bring a cool product to market, maybe the person who invented works for Go Rhino now. All I am saying to call a company thief's with having no first hand knowledge is a little much.
