A copy. Lame for a US company to do.

Not a very good copy either, I'd take the AEV tank over that any day. Look at the cheap cap on there... I bet it's not the automotive style that clicks when it's sealed

Thumbs down

"This product is sold exclusively through 4 Wheel Parts and 4WD".... Guessing it could not be made in China and Titan was lame enough to produce it for them.

Although similar in appearance and function, this one will fit on any spare tire carrier. In truth, the same kind of comparison of form and function can be said about all the Jeep bumpers out there. AEV vs ARB, the AEV rear tire carrier and Warn's, etc. What about the AEV bull logo and Lamborghini's? And let's not forget AEV's first five spoke Pintler wheel design looked very familiar........I think someone watched a lot of Magnum P.I.

must have been a subliminal thing LOL. I thought it was a bull as well but then it was pointed out it is a Bison/buffalo lol.

Methinks that perhaps a few were a bit too quick in calling the kettle black......
