    ...I buy a new toy for the KJ, the company goes out of business 6 months later.:happy175: Just realized that today when someone asked me about the Backbone at Harbor Freight.

    Got the Super Skinks in the fall of 2013, I think by 2014 they were defunct. Got the backbone in 2015, now they're out of business.

    So, anyone have any KJ stuff they'd like to sell me? :happy175:

    I heard they were either out of business or was going out. Wonder why ? Seemed like he had a great business with a lot of great products
    Oh found this

    We are temporarily closed for a company reorganization and relocation.
    Stay tuned for updates!


    They moved to where , Kentucky to be out away from everything / everyone, wonder if they sold out ?

    Lets see RL products, on the 04 , front and rear bumpers, rock rails, roof rack.............

    They were in Kentucky when I got my Backbone. They were great to deal with.

    RL was great too, I had the rockrails within 2 weeks of ordering them. Not sure if they came from CO or MO (didn't they move to MO or something)?

    We called Detours not all that long ago. They stated something about moving and not being able to take any new orders at this time (we were looking at their hitch-mounted tire carrier for the MK).

    Don't you be going near a dodge jeep dealer. I plan to buy a truck soon and I don't want them folding on me.

    I bought parts for my backbone less than 2 months ago from DetourUSA. Definitely not out of business.
