Congo Cage Bracket Ripoff
I bought a used Kargo Master Congo Cage from Craigslist, sans the mounting brackets required to mount the cage to my '97 TJ. When I started searching for the brackets, I learned that NO ONE SELLS THEM. Kargo Master produces kits to mount their cage to other vehicles, but not Wranglers.
When I called Kargo Master, they offered to sell me the brackets, at $22.50 per bracket. On four corners, THAT IS TWICE WHAT THEY CHARGE FOR OTHER KITS! Why? Because they don't offer a kit. Which means they know they can get over on Wrangler owners.
I'm calling bu115h!t! There is no way Wrangler brackets cost twice as much to produce as other mounting brackets. When I asked the Kargo Master sales person about this, he said it didn't matter, that "we well thousands of brackets like this."
I'm amazed and incensed. Yes, I can afford the brackets. But I hate retailers and manufacturers who take their customers for granted. I'll probably order the brackets later today (unless someone has a set or can manufacture some cheaper), but I can't say I'm happy about it, or would recommend this company to anyone. I would encourage everyone to call their customer service line and demand an install kit in line with other mounting kit prices. Their number is 800-343-7486 Monday - Friday, 8:30a.m.-4:30p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
But to keep it technical, can anyone recommend an alternate way to mount the Kargo Master Congo Cage to a 1997 Jeep Wrangler? Or can anyone point to an alternate source?
