Except that picture is a 3.5 ton. This is a 5 ton.

They've changed their web site since I last looked, but it doesn't look like Dixon Bate even makes the 5 Ton any more.

Found some

I have some good news. I found a supplier in the UK that has what is likely the very last NEW Dixon Bate 5 ton tow jaws. I've already been in contact with them and they have 10 of them. Individually it would cost $322 per tow jaw including shipping(to my address in NJ, could be more for other locations). If we were to get a mini group buy going then it would be cheaper. For example if just 4 jaws are purchased then the cost per jaw would be around $285. To save money they would get shipped to me from the UK in one package then I would split it up and ship it to everyone. I still have to look into that but with flat rate shipping that would cost only $10 more at the very most and the RURR is always possible. The more jaws we get the lower the price should go. I'll be making a group buy thread for this in a little bit.

So what do you guys think? Would you be interested in doing this? I plan on getting one regardless as I really like the smaller 3.5 ton version I have.

Expedition Exchange has them for 225 on their site. Are they out of stock?

Clicking add to cart doesn't work so I assume they're out of stock. Add to cart works for other products

They also are out of stock on the version that is still made so I doubt they'd have the NLA one

Edit:
Just called them and they do not have any/ can't get more
