    I saw the same thing on mine when I swapped to a larger spare.

    I just got rid of the tire. no sense of trying to sell it or whatever pretty crappy. I need to figure out what to do or put under there to prevent it happening with the new spare

    While they are expensive from DesertDoesIt it doesn't give a scam artist the right to rip off the intellectual property and so blatantly steal from the company that designed it initially. It takes big balls to even steal the pictures off their website while selling it.

    Plenty of people can improve on the design or offer a cheaper one but theft is still theft and I wouldn't support some shady ass company in China that is just ripping off everyone else's IP. Their site is just full of cheap ass knock offs....

    The original product includes the cost of R&D plus paying for American labor. Im not super familiar with the product or warranty but my guess is they stand by their product.

    The chinesium product is cheaper because they blatantly stole everything, from the design to the pictures off the website,
    and they use borderline slave labor.

    I am curious to see what those "grade 8" bolts will do in an accident, as well as what toyotas warranty and your auto insurance would do if those bolts sheared off in a wreck causing the seat to dislodge and injure its occupant.

    So congrats I guess.

    Personally, if I cannot afford to buy the Original Designer / American made product, then I cant afford it.

    If I was going to bolt cheap shit to my truck I would buy that hyundai fake truck

    ETA: If you like small businesses coming out with innovative products that address very specific issues on your specific vehicle and want them to continue to do so, it does not make sense to give money to the folks stealing their ideas and market

    Has anyone installed the M.O.R.E. Front & Transmission Skid Plates on a 3rd Gen. 4x2?

    Thanks

    Some stuff and a few things. Some more stuff and a few more things in the works.
    Because the day $40 to support someone doing something cool breaks me is the day I know I've fucked up somewhere else..big time.

    I bought the Toyota one on eBay for cheap with no tax, free shipping, already made to fit. Someone had bought it for their long bed and returned it realizing it was for a short bed. Dealer sold it as a loss. Gotta love a bargain. :spending:
    I have thought about buying one of those tractor supply mats to go above the spare tire mount so the sidewall doesn't get creased/ dented.

    As long as it isn’t citrus you can drive it right across the border through the agricultural stop.

    Hey more power to you and the guy making them. I don't think $40 will break anyone, but I'd rather put a $6 piece of hose on that I cut myself vs spending $40 for someone else to do it

    No need to get fiesty
