i to was just looking at them and there on sale now at my store here in geelong, i had the ALdi one on my 80 series that i just sold only had that for about 6 months used it about 20 times and never had a problem with it doing some very heavy (note bogged in deep thick clay mud) even skull dragged mhy self all the way up a steep rutted hill, only thing i dont like with the ridge rider is no remote control bit hell for $360 i think its worth it know to conn the hand brake as she is still pissed of that i sold the car with it on, she brought that one for me, the pajero i have now is lighter than the 80 so should be sweet

Need to get out more

Their crap,

I had one for 3 days and I returned it. Read my post on it.

Spend a couple of hung more and invest in an Ironman or a Tigerz11.
