Steve,

What brand do you have. As so far I have found about 4 different brands.

Opposit Lock have a pretty good number with gas struts etc. I have a single on my 80 series but can see me ending up with a double one day. Ad ouble would most likely require a suspension upgrade or polyair springs at least.

I fitted a pair of Polyairs on rere .. could not be happier !! They are a real eye opener !! and a lot cheaper than the suspension up grade that seem to be in vogue at present !

Coops,

I am already counting on a suspension kit between the carrier and a long range tank. I am hoping for at least 2" after fitting the accessories. Also I figure if I get the double now I don't have to use it but IF I only get a single I may need to upgrade it again in the future.

I have the kaymar rear bar on my 100 series with two pivot points but only one wheel carrier.

The difference in price between the one pivot and the single pivot was not much so i went for the twin pivot in case I wanted to add stuff later. Note if you only use one pivot make sure to buy a pivot cover for the other one so that the thread does not get damaged (costs about $20-25 from memory)

The reason I selected the kaymar over the others was that the Kaymar bar had the tow hitch integrated and looked to me to give me a better departure angle than some of the others - as they had to add a separate tow bar and I felt one integrated unit would be stronger.

The other reason was that I had ARB bars on front which meant that I could use the high lift jack front and back once you add the ARB bumper attachment.

So my comment would be if you have a ARB bar out front then Kaymar would work best if you have another brand bar than maybe look at their rearbar.

Anyway, you know my number so give me a call, or have alook at mine next time we see each other to check it out
