Does anyone know current information on Hanson Offroad products? I was prepared to order a rear bumper/tire carrier for my 2004 rubicon and saw quite a bit of bad press, BBB, Jeep forum. Talked with Steve Kramer and he said a month, no parts in stock. Any information would be of help

thanks .skip, yerington nevada

Skip...Steve Kramer is the co-owner of Calmini, Full-Traction Suspension and Hanson.  Calmini acquired Hanson several years ago and manufactures all their products at Bakersfield.  I'm not clear what their current production or stock looks like with the pandemic.  When you talk to Steve Kramer, you've reached the top of the company.

Calmini Products has built excellent products since the 'eighties.  Steve and Randy Kramer grew their business to include Full-Traction Suspension and Hanson.  We have a Full-Traction 6-inch long arm suspension system on our XJ Cherokee.  The system has worked very well for over a decade and nearly 90,000 miles. 

I have interviewed Steve Kramer at trade shows.  Here is information from magazine articles and videos:

That's what I can share...Your talking to Steve Kramer makes the best sense.
