Group Buy : Dixon Bate 5 Ton Tow Jaws

So 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 get cheaper for everyone the more people we have on board. For example if just 4 jaws are purchased then the cost per jaw would be around $285. In order to keep the cost down they would get shipped to me from the UK in one package then I would split it up and ship it to everyone. I can look into standard shipping for everyone individually to see if it is cheaper than flat rate but flat rate shipping is only $10 and the RURR is always possible. The more jaws we get the lower the price will be.

For anyone that doesn't know these are the same rear recovery point that were fitted to Camel Trophy vehicles. They use the same four hole bolt pattern that is on the rear crossmember so no modification is needed to install these, just bolt it on with a backing plate. With the tow jaw no shackle is needed to use recovery straps, just open it up, put the loop of the strap in and close it and you're good to go.



So let me know if you want one and I'll add you to the list.

Due to the limited quality if more people want one than there are available then it is first come first served

I would like to get this done as soon as possible. All depends on the interest there is for this but hoping to have it finalized and order within two weeks

So far up to three, who else wants one? They get cheaper the more we get.

Can't say for others but I'm using it for recovery. Why do you ask?

I believe it will fit a military style ring like a pintle would but am not sure how it would perform actual towing

What's the price at currently for one more? I'm on the fence.... But just today I got the TDI RRC on the road!! Damn it's only been almost 2 years.

It would be $285 but I'm still waiting to hear back from someone who was also interested so it may be less.

That's got to feel good getting it back on the road, it has been a while since I've been able to drive mine

Got a little behind on this, I've been extremely busy. If no one else wants one I'll be letting the seller know in the next day or two. I was also able to get them to give use a bit more of a discount on these too.
I'm guessing somebody got that used one that came up a couple day ago won't be needing a new one anymore

That used one is me.

I didn't hear anything and thought maybe this deal was gone. So I'm out - Sorry!
