I was actually going to message them about it. It would be nice to have an aluminum option. In the mean time, tower has wing sets in stock. I'd buy some before they're gone. I mentioned that I coated the set in two part epoxy. It helps to keep them from breaking. I took a picture of the wing mount after I ran it so there is some discoloration from flipping over but the mount didn't break.

Looks like we'll have wing mounts this June from Exotek.

I emailed them about it. They said they are in the works but won't be released until mid to end of June.

cool thanks.

Sucks that the part we need looks like its in some expensive parts lot. Be nice if they could look into stop doing that. I really don't need a collection of stuff that may not even be for the car for the 1 part I do need. If Intech can do it with the whole lower shock ends, Durango can do it too.

Darn good car, just need a bit more thought on the parts packing side.

Don't feel comfortable with the straps holding battery secure plus the straps are long and look messy. I would feel better with something solid holding. Down a battery over jumps and stuff.

Straps are solid. Once you put them on correctly they stay put.

I actually sized it to my shorty pack then cut the excess. Always has a perfect and secure fit since then.
