    Thinking there's an eta on delivery, I get so freakin excited when I get an email that this thread has been updated. Sadly, we haven't had a delivery ETA or how to go about procuring one of these AMAZING looking racks aside from putting our names on a wish list. Spartanman . . . any news? Even bad news?

    UPDATE: Several months ago I engaged the fabricator to build more racks. Getting them to respond, let alone commit to a schedule, remains a challenge. As always, their big customers get preferential treatment. I may try again in the coming days, but no promises.
    Mr. Fisherman and gammel like this.

    I would definitely be interested in one of these racks if you can get the fabricator to commit.

    Hi there
    I am very interested in your rack.
    Will you ship to Switzerland?

    And do you have it in black?

    Thanks

    I keep missing the updates on this thread and am kicking myself for not buying one of the first production runs. I understand that this is now a pretty niche product since the newer models don't really need this because of the redesigns but I would even be willing to pay a little extra if there was another production run in order to lock down one of these racks for my aging AT. I didn't even realize there was a website for the product until recently and sent an email but didn't see a response back yet.

    Does anyone have any updates on a new order?

    Unfortunately, I'm thinking production has been halted due to strength related issues. I was lucky to buy a used one that had stress cracks around the rear rack and had the seams welded up.....It cracked again and I ended up adding gussets and side plates.

    To be clear, production has ceased (for now) due to supplier issues, not because of a flawed design. My guess is the rack you acquired had been overloaded. As stated at the onset, ATO rack users should not exceed OEM max load ratings.

    Mine has been ticking along just lovely! I was in the second batch. It was worth the wait.
