Wanting to buy some 2 inch wheel spacers for my B2601 and I have read nothing but praise on Bro-Tek spacers. My problem is when I click on the link that others have posted I get "not secure" site. Have tried changing my settings but no luck. This is the link I am using, any suggestions?

All I get is a darkgrey checkerplate background.......
..have to assume their website is 'under repair', no hot spare server,....
must have made a lot of money and don't need more business ??

How do you equate their website not working to them having made too much money?

I have them on my BX25D - they are very nice and come with EVERYTHING needed which is extremely nice. Have been on for 7 years ... never a problem.

I too went the site ....... black diamond background ... nothing else.

Maybe - this is a guess, that covid has slowed them to the point that they do not want to take more orders than they can fill at this time..... But who the hell knows, that was a SWAG.

here is another well known company that makes "nice" stuff also: BORA spacers

check the bottom of the page ..... change to TWO inch

I have looked at the Bora spacers, I was just going to compare the two brands and make a decision.

Well their IT / web guru doesn't know their site is nonfunctioning, their hot primary backup didn't go online, for 2 reasons. If they needed money, they'd KNOW their website wasn't working...
I know within 916.652 ms if my server goes 'down' or 'funny'.

BTW, I just checked while typing this reply, the site is still 'out to lunch'

Well not having any luck getting Bro-Tek site to come up, does anyone have any idea how much they charge for the 2 inch aluminum spacers for the B2601?

I saw somewhere on the net, one of the staff or family died... maybe that's why the site is 'stalled' ? Kinda odd that no one has noticed for over 2 weeks.....
Thanks, will wait a couple of more days and if no luck with their site I will go with the Bora spacers.

Well I contacted Richard at Bro-Tek by Email and got a quick reply, He stated their website was long over due for a upgrade and it should be up and running again this week. They did have the spacers in stock and ready to be shipped, unlike Bora that states 4-6 weeks unless you want to pay for a rush fee ($$).
So my 2 inch spacers are ordered and should arrive in about a week.
Thanks to all who replied to this thread, and I would recommend Bro-Tek already if just for their good service, and look forward to seeing the new website.

Have you tried looking on Amazon.com? Many members, including myself, have found spacers for their tractors on Amazon at a much lower price than on other sites. If I remember correctly, I paid something like $39.00 a pair for mine on Amazon.

Unfortunately the B2601 has a uncommon bolt pattern that does not match trucks /Jeep bolt pattern. Believe me I looked. Thanks

The reason the Bora spacers take longer to ship is they will custom make them any way you want. They will make them from steel or aluminum, any size you want.
They come with everything you need also.

I had them make me 4” spacers for my L3901 because no one sells them. Makes a huge difference if you have to operate on hilly terrain!
