    I just saw these in the October issue of Four Wheeler.

    Looks kind of like Daniel's design :rolleyes:.

    Who cares if there coping each other. Thats how products become better.
    Almost every product out there is a copy of something.
    Take beadlocks. How many different designs of beadlocks are there??

    I care - you are speaking about a situation that is better for the consumer, not necessarily better for the creator of the product. If DP90 put hours into his product (not saying he did, didn't, or whatever) and someone else is first-to-market with his product that sucks. We want an environment where the true designers are rewarded. These people usually do not like the business side of things and frequently get taken advantage of.

    Once again, not saying any of this applies to DP90 - I do not know. I hope that the original designer of the carrier pictured in the mag is in line for the $$ should it be a successful product.

    Yes, that belonged to James (79 stomper). And yes, it was made by dp90K5. I can tell you firsthand that those bumpers are tough. I yanked on them sideways on and off for 4 hours (when he blew both front and rear shafts, and bent the rear spring perches around the 14 bolt. :eek1: And no, it wasnt just u-joints. The flange broke off the t-case). They are really nice.
