i need the middle, intermediate, and rear hoops for a 88" hoopset. they are land rover PNs 330551, 330553, and 330557.

does anyone have these laying around, or if not where would be the best place to buy them?

thanks

9V,

On my chuck wagon trailer it is essentially the rear of a 110 pick-up bed. Instead of buying a hoopset I had one fabbed up that goes directly into the factory fittings. It was made out of the same dia. tubing, but way thicker. Mandrel bent with welded in horiz. support bars. Yeah, it is a little bulky to put on and remove, but it's way beefier than a factory hoopset.

Cost me about 150 smacks to get it custom made.

I can get a pic of it if you want.

Just an idea...I know gen-u-whine parts can get spendy.

thanks mike. i would do that, but i could see a problem with all of the brackets and stuff that mount to it. for the hassle and $150, i could buy all three pieces i need (gen-u-whine) from Rovers North for $174. i may also need the right and left hand "door top drain posts" but im not sure.

who knows what the hell i need! :D

if anyone had a full hoopset for sale that would be ideal.

Suit yourself... BUT 250 bones is a lot of money for what is basically a pretty lame set of parts.
