I have the F.R.O.R. one. If you get it take a grinder to the corner closest to the gas tank. I have some pretty big dings in the tank from it. I only took off about 3/8" and repainted and have yet to see any fresh scars. Good product. Now that I think about it, the one I got from them was made by someone else. It was stamped by AOR I think.

Both FROR, and AOR use the same manufacturer for the skids.. Both of us have had no luck in finding the guys who makes them. For now, nothing is available.
Makes sense. What you are saying is I have a part on my truck that has increased in value! Wow, that never happens. My guess is someone could pretty easily copy the design since it isn't that intricate of a part. Any takers? If some one buys me the laser cutter I will volunteer my time to make them. Was the original maker using the name M.O.R.E on them?

I can make one but I would need to have one to copy ;)

from the pic on their site it doesn't look that complicated.

True, the guy that built all my goodies could as well, but he doesn't really have the time for "piddly" stuff, if you will..

It was R.O.R.E., But the Guy is MIA.. I wish he would turn up.. I could really use those skids!

are the production numbers too low for you guys to make them and sell them for a decent price?

No, we don't like to knock off someone elses parts and call them out own.. It's happened to us by a few of the bigger shops, and it really sucks! I would really like to build a skid for the e-locker, but I don't know how it would look to RORE, plus we actually helped Rauri with his design a little.. It's really hard to re-invent the wheel, and not have people point their fingers. If RORE is defunked, then I guess we might go ahead and do something. I would like to find Rauri, and get his OK first..

Agreed, but at what point do you leap?..People are asking, he's not to be found, what do you do?? I understand the situation, it's a tough call..Hell, just make me one, I won't tell :D

I talked to the steel manufacturing/laser cutting plant that builds the skids for RORE, they are going to explore a few different things for me to get a skid going.. I should know more tomorrow.

well, that's what I meant. the same thing happened with Nuke's discos (what ever happened to him anyway?). someone took over using his design...was that you?

where was this guy located? maybe a nearby member can check on him.

Much appreciated, just trying to protect the investment..
