Question LoD Heavy Duty Jeep Rear Bumper Tire Carrier?

Does anyone know anything about this company's products? I'm looking for a rear bumper and spare tire carrier for a good price. This seems to be one of the best prices that I've seen. I would like to know if there products are any good and how is there costumer service? Here is the link.

That is a very good price on a rear bumper/tire carrier. However, most of the ones that are sold, that cost more, are made with 3/16" steel. This one is 1/8" steel. I have seen a home made carrier fall apart, going down a country road. What kind of warranty comes with this carrier? Some times cheaper is not always better.

that includes the bumper AND the carrier??? that is a GREAT price! the warn bumper alone is about $265 and to add the carrier to that it is $330 more! this thing is a bumper AND a carrier and is only slightly more than the just the warn carrier...sounds like a great deal to me! less than $400 compared to almost $600!

They have one avaliable that is made of 3/16" steel that is only about $30 more. I only thought of going with the lighter one to cut down on weight. Here is larger one. What do yall think of this one?

I have not had any experience with this product, and it's quality, or lack of. If you are set on getting one, get the one built with 3/16" metal. Having the tire carrier hinge on one pin, is a lot of stress on any metal. If you order this, let us know what you think, write a review, after you have used it awhile, so we can be more informed. Thanks.

Look at the Garvin Wilderness Rack. It's a bit more expensive but I guarantee you it's worth every penny. I spent four months shopping online before I bought mine. I narrowed it down to the Garvin, Jeeperman and the Lod before finally buying the Garvin. Look at Summit.com, they had the best price around.
