my cross bar is closer for some reason 10.5 cm from last bold to bar :( .. I have to take off like 4 or more gears to make it fit.
Got a couple of other options although not sure how legal a spacer is anymore I also rather not change the handbrake setup.

They are a nice piece of gear I heard no problems at all with them. Still upset I cannot get it to fit
That sucks you could always reweld the cross bar further back and prime and gal paint

thats another option I rather not play with the A frame.
Also put it on a 50mm spacer that get it above the crossbar
Someone else put theirs on a steel plate re drilled holes so moved it forward.
Both of these fuzzy if legal into not fuzzy :) if you know what I mean.. insurance wise.

All of them a pain in one way or another..

Let me know how you go.. I think I go for a ARK offroad one as handbrake the same as ALKO.. McHitch same problem with handbrake

I have seen a couple with the 50mm spacers but not sure of the legal side of that so I don't know what your options are I can't see the problem getting the 20mm x 20mm box cross bar properly welded if it was the main chassis box section I'd say no but anyway good luck

Have you got the V3 davemc? I didn't measure ours when I fitted it, so not sure what distance is normal, but I fitted a V2 by removing and welding in a new cross brace, to then find out a week later the V3 had just been released and was shorter, so fits without modification usually. Not happy! :)

@Maximage Yes it is a V3 still does not fit cross bar 10.5cm from last bolt.. McHitch no good at all I have to use something like the ARK which has the normal handbrake like the ALKO.
