This Group Buy is Sponsored by Lucrum

Well, it took a little doing, but I was able to get in contact with Bushranger and work out the details for a group buy on their X Trax / Sand Track product.


These aren't just for the sand as the name implies. They can be used for recovery from Sand, Mud, Dirt and Snow. They measure 1.5 meters long by 300mm wide.

The manufacturer also has this to say..

"Rubber Cross Beams designed and moulded to create a positive grip on both tyres and terrian.
Built with High Quality Stainless Steel Cable for long life and durability.
Supplied in handy velcro fastened wrap bag for easy storage when not in use."



IF you can find them in the US they retail for between $110 and $125. Through this group buy we can get the A-Trax / Sand Track for $78.50 EACH ($157.00 per pair) + freight..

But wait, there's more.. We don't have to pay freight from Australia! That's right... I negotiated freight charges from the US port of entry in Washington so we'll be saving a grip of money there as well.

Here's the catch.. Once the order is placed, it will be shipped to the USA via a freighter which can take up to 6 weeks (though usually product arrives within a month.) Because of this, I'll be limiting the buy to only a couple weeks.

THE GB WILL BE CLOSING AUGUST 15 @ 9:00 AM (Pacific).

I will be placing the order August 1st so delivery can be made before the desert wheeling season starts and before the Surf-N-Turf event at Pismo Beach / Oceano Dunes.

Although there was no minimum order limit imposed by the supplier, it was clear that if we buy 20 pairs (or 40 individual units) future group buys would be open to us.

Good looking system and a nice price, can't do it right now though.

Good luck with the GB.

I'm in for a pair for sure. I'll be letting the desert folks here in our club know about this as well: 702 FJ Crew - An FJ Cruiser Owner's Club in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Feel free to spread the word. This is NOT limited to FJs, but I'd appreciate it if those wanting to order did so through this site.

Consider yourself added. :)

Arien, the weight is something that I cannot find info on. The PSP sand ladders were roughly 60lbs for the set. I'm willing to bet these are less, but I'm just not sure. I'll keep looking for the answer.

Count me in! These look to be easier to store over PSP/PAP and at 27lbs each, that's quite lightweight. Will there be an issue of someone shipping this to me in Texas once the freighter has hit the beach?

Thanks
Chris

No problems with shipping once they land in the USA. The Sand Tracks will be piggy backing in on an ARB shipment and ARB will be handling the payment and shipping aspect of this group buy.

Yep, wouldn't have it any other way. I had only posted a link on our forum directly to this thread for anyone interested. Thanks again for coordinating!

Anyone who wanted a set will get them. As stated in the original post, there was not a minimum set to qualify so no worries.

Thanks again to all that showed an interest!

we might get more visibility if this thread was placed in the main GB sub-forum. depending on how much shipping is, i might be in for 2 instead of just 1.

I got the cut off date extended to the end of the month so I'll have it moved over to the GB thread ASAP.

As for freight.. It should be around $25 to have 2 shipped from WA to CA, or around $15 to ship just one.

Shipping to anywhere else in the USA should be under $50.

Please keep in mind that the shipping estimates are based on posted UPS ground rates. I do not know who will be used to do the shipping, but I'm figuring UPS is a good place to get the estimates.

I'm counting my pennies... not much sand up here but lots of mud and SNOW!

We do need this moved to the group buy section!
I got the closing date extended again to help those that went to summit.

Hopefully 2 more weeks will give everyone time to pinch pennies.
