Well get on it! lol

I'd be interested in one for a RTT instead of tire. Also, if it had mounts for a Rotax (or similar) gas/water can, as well as hi-lift and/or shovel mounts.

Well the tire mount just unbolts from the top so that's easy so the RTT will mount right up. There is Hi-Lift mounts on the side bar and I assume your talking about RotopaX gas cans? Mounts for those can easily be added my products will be completely customizeable with many options.

I have not came up with a final price just yet I'm going to build the first one and then come up with pricing and options. I did think about a DIY kit for the GB with the tubes cut, bent & notched for the guys with welding skills to save on shipping. But for the guys that would just take it to a shop and have it welded it wouldn't be worth it because the price of the rack won't be that much less seeing how the bending and notching is the long and more difficult part of the build welding it together is easy.

Poisonspyder sells a unwelded kits for jeeps. It's worth every penny. Better to pay someone/shop to weld than to buy all the tools and try to figure out how to make it. Many pipes would be wasted.SELL AN UNWELDED KIT.
