New Products Coming

Hello Stranger...

Well yes it has been a while since I posted in here. I check in and read post when I get a chance but nothing like the good old days.

Noticed I don't have a supporting vendor page anymore but wanted to share a few new products coming to market for those who might be interested.

In about a week we will have light bar brackets for both straight and curved light bars as well as pod light mounts that attach to your hood hinges and place a small pod light right in front of your windshield.

I don't have photos yet but keep an eye out and I will add some when they arrive.

I continue to make new products for the Jeep Commander and plan several more for 2016 including the front and rear bumpers again.

Are you manufacturing these products yourself - or are you a company rep for somebody?

I remember you talking about Steel Armadillo quite a bit a while back - are you affiliated with them?

Looking forward to seeing the new products.

Hey Big Blue, here's your chance to tell them "They make very little now in the way of Commander parts". <smirk>
Those of us who've been around a while understand why "Steel Armadillo's name gets thrown around a lot on this forum".

@a49erFan - Glad to see you back, looking forward to seeing the new light mounts! I've been looking for a good solution for lighting on the current build up. Oh, and that order that came in from Richmond last night...can't wait to get it. =)

Now it all makes sense.

Last time I talked to you (Oct 13th 2015) - I asked you about a bumper that you said never went into production.

LOL, I see all the Steel Armadillo stickers now...mind if I ask what you paid for it?

It's certainly been a long few months, I can't wait to finally see the new Steel Armadillo custom bumpers.

Yep, it makes a lot more sense now - but it doesn't change my opinion, I stand by what I said.

The products I've seen by SA I like, but I wish they had a broader selection.

I'm looking forward to seeing the new products, it's been a long time coming.

SA does not offer a lot for Commanders.

I understand what you're saying, and I too wish there was a lot more parts for the Commander by EVERYONE, but we have to support those that already DO have parts. If we shun the suppliers we HAVE, we'll never convince others to start producing parts. I'd absolutely love to get some stuff from Poison Spyder and Metalcloak but....

Well you have a valid point Rick and I agree with you.

I could see how you thought I was shunning SA, but that really was not my intention.

I'm glad to see that they have new stuff coming out and I have every intention of supporting Steel Armadillo and as I said in another post;

https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/...do-list-7.html

I already had their super rock-sliders on my to-do list.
