Default TorqMaster R160 rear lunchbox locker

Torq-masters industries here in the states is seriously saying they are about to release an auto-locker (lunchbox locker) for the R160.
Myself and several others have had email contact with them and their saying 6 to 8 weeks away from release.


I've had my hopes up before only to have them dashed but this might actually be happening.

If I could post screenshots of the messaging I've done with them I would.
They seem to be serious about it.

You might want to explain what type of locker this is compared to other types of locker.

Must be hard for R160 otherwise Rally would not have gone to the expense and effort to use an R180.

I paid $300 American for the Lokka lunchbox locker in the front of my Xterra and it was worth every penny.
