    Defender Gullwing Shortage?

    Hi All,


    Im told the CSW Defender Gullwing window is in shortage from the expedition centre, Daniel advised that the factory just doesn't seem to be shipping any and the current wait list is up to Feb already so isn't taking any more orders until its resolved.


    Im wondering if any of you guys know of where else you can source these from?


    I know you can get the Frontrunner ones instead, but I already have 1 on the passenger side so I'd like to keep them uniform and have both CSW versions.....plus the Frontrunner one is twice the price!


    Hope someone has some good news for me

    Unfortunately I cant help but much except to say that I placed an order with an expected 12-14 week lead time. I accepted that cause I wanted to support an Australian company, but after almost twice that long my order was still no closer to being filled. I ended up going with frontrunner (luckily before the price hike).

    If demand is so high that they cant meet it, then the obvious answer is expand, especially when the competition can be delivered within a fortnight.

    Iím currently waiting on several orders for CSW Gullwings for various customers, some ordered as far back as July.
    I spoke to Luke at CSW directly last week. Theyíre extremely busy and behind on all orders, itís as simple as that.

    Iím actually considering designing my own, but that would be some time off yet.

    I wasn't sure if the CSW Brand was made locally or just imported in by the Expedition Centre, and was just hoping there would be stock I could pay a slight premium for and have shipped in from overseas......but, it seems not.


    I really want both sides to be the same, so I'd prefer to just wait than order a different model (providing they will actually eventually fulfil my order!)


    But like Graekynn said - if you cant keep up with demand then expand, even if only temporarily.
