I can't recall any Brit members ever saying anything good about Scorpion.

Perhaps we Yanks should take heed?

I think 4x4ag is kind of dormant. Most of the items on their website are now out of stock.

From what I have heard AG4x4 is no longer doing Scorpion stuff. I have no idea if anyone is doing thier stuff in the USA anymore.

Personally, I want it to carry a surf fishing rod basket and help position my boat trailer against my house. It's a tight squeeze and would be easier if I could do it facing it. So I need a front end skid plate and a front receiver hitch. Why not kill 2 birds with one stone? Problem being that I can't find a distributor in the US. Maybe one of the UK guys could buy it and send it over for me????

I don't think a jade ring would help pushing a boat about

Stephen, Do post up the price including any s/h charges. It would be a great way for me to get one over here. Thanks for looking into this for me.
Cheers!
Jon

That's a tough one


Follow-up Post:

I once bought a K&N filter from them, it took weeks to arrive despite assurances that "it was on the shelf", they failed to say where the shelf was.
I suspect it was located in Outer Mongolia.
It finally turned up shortly after the if it's not here in 2 days I want my money back conversation.

Sounds like they are about as customer service oriented as Paddocks Spares. Just waited over a month and a half for an order to arrive.
