A bit of history...
In 2008, we created the rho-plate V1 with multiple adjustments.
Designed locally in Vancouver, BC, Canada, we created an affordable, yet versatile product to fit the plate on the tow hook mounting point.
Making a desirable product does have its problem. After a while, we start seeing copied versions being sold online replicating the exact same design but with inferior material. We often get questions on fit and finish on those products being confused as our genuine kits. The company copied our product even shamelessly claimed its their trademark products.
Rather than battling a damaged reputation by copies with bad fit and finish, we decided to come up with a new design that addresses shortcomings of V1; hence the creation of rho-plate V2.
