I'm in contact with Mantec, and I've sent them this video:

Should see what their reply is within the next day or so.

Update: They got the video, and they are running it by their design/engineering. I'm assuming that means they forwarded it on to whoever does the machining of their parts.

They want to send me an o-ring. Or, for me to send them 66 pounds for a new piston and cylinder. I should have sent it back to Rover's North when first got it and noticed that the cylinder mounting holes were drilled in the wrong spots. But Rover's North wanted me to send back the whole thing, so that would have cost me at least 66 pounds anyway.

Paddock Spares has received a shipment of Mantec tire carriers. So the production line is definitely rolling.

i just saw your video. Maybe try buying some shim stock and wrapping it around the plastic tube ans securing with epoxy? that vibration seems really minor to ship stuff across country. Every tire carrier ive seen has this or worse

the rubber bushings on the piston on mine wear out very fast, especially in rough driving. Eventually I expect to have the same wear issue you do on the piston and will probably shim it.

Yep. I have a rubber grommet kit from Harbor Freight. One of the grommets fits it perfect, so I just replace it every so often.

What is shim stock?

The rattle is pretty minor, it's just that it was that way out of the box. If the thing was a couple years old. But yeah, not going to be spending a ton of time and money on this.

It's on Amazon thin sheets of steel or brass , like aluminum foil but much stronger in a roll in different thicknesses
