When does the bridging version come? :P

We're going to work on some brackets to keep the product from folding so that it can be used for bridging but as it stands right now it is quite strong for bridging. Pedram also has a video on YouTube that he posted. Here are some pics from one of the editors at Toyota4WD Owner Magazine using his in North Cal.

Sounds good I can put your order in with the UPS pick up if you order before 2:00 pm Mountain time :) :lr:

I'd be interested in them with brackets for bridging. Right now I'm using fiberglass drops, which works well, but creaks unnervingly when supporting the weight of the vehicle. I may search for other options when I go to replace them.

Hey folks hope everyone is doing well! Just wanted to drop back in and say things are going great locally. I'm working with a large auto parts company and we're starting to sell to our electric companies, government construction contractors, fire departments, JOBE, Border Patrol, etc. Last week we did a demo for a government contractor and got their 35,000 lb dumb truck unstuck with the Traction Jack they loved em; I'd say the top compliments have been design, strength, made in the USA, and most importantly, they fold!

 

What are you guys waiting for! Here are some pictures of the recovery of the dump truck; they don't bend, buckle, crack, or anything even under that much weight.

Shoot me an email if interested! gooffroad@tractionjack.com and for those of you waiting on other color options we should have some more end of September - mid Oct.

One more thing, we're testing a relationship with a winch company called KingOne Winches. They have the #1 selling winch in Australia due to warranty, reliability, and functionality (www.kingone.com). We only have a few winches left and they need to sell before I can restock. Traction Jack has one sweet deal that is way too hard to pass up. We're selling the truck winches and throwing in a FREE Traction Jack set. Please note, we only have 2 ATV winches left that are synthetic rope.

 

12,000 lb winch w/ control box and remote: $799.99 now only $599.99 plus a FREE Black Traction Jack set

9,500 lb winch w/ control box and remote: $649.99 now only $499.99 plus a FREE Black Traction Jack set

3,000 lb winch w/ control box and remote (Synthetic Line): $299.99 now only $209.99 plus 50% off a Black Traction Jack set

3,000 lb winch w/o control box - w/ remote (Steel Line): $249.99 now only $189.99 plus 50% off a Black Traction Jack set

Hey guys update to the winches, I've sold all but 4 and I want to get rid of them before I put another order in with the supplier. I have only one 9,500 lb winch left which is perfect for the rover seeing as they weigh about 4,500-4,700 lbs. I also have three, 3000 lb ATV/UTV winches left; 2 are cable spool and the other one is synthetic line.

 

I am going to let them go just around cost and you pay shipping via UPS ground.

 

9500 lb winch --> $290

3000 lb ATV/UTV winch --> $135

3000 lb synthetic ATV/UTV --> $165

 

Just shoot me an email at gooffroad@tractionjack.com. Also if you want to put an order in for a set of Traction Jacks send an email to the same address. Thanks guys!

Do it!  Then again, you'll need a winch bumper to go with it, so a bit more than just $290.

 

Still, it's a pretty good price.  Even the Harbor Freight 9000lb winch is $299.  

(fwiw I'm pretty sure my Smittybuilt is exactly the same as the HF, except it came with synth instead of steel line)

Both are possible.  The Blue Submarine (she ran again on Sunday!) has both, from new.

Hey NCLR Club friends! Hope everyone is doing well and hope your annual was another success this year. I'm glad Traction Jack could make another appearance. I wanted to give everyone a little update as to where we are because I was recapping my difficult journey thus far and really appreciate everyone that has really supported my journey in growing Traction Jack so far (Pedram specifically). He gets a lot of updates and knows me because we chat and hes my friend on Facebook. If you have Facebook find Traction Jack (fb.com/tractionjackllc) or instagram @tractionjack.

 

Anyways, the first week of November was a huge success at the 2015 SEMA Show in Vegas. We took a truck build this year and had different colors of the product to show which I know some of you were interested in. I had companies and reps from all over the country, canada, europe, middle east, australia, etc visit us and get on the list to carry Traction Jack; some companies as big as HomeDepot, Autozone, British Atlantic again, etc. MaxTrax was down the hall from us and everyone talked about how expensive they were, how arrogant the owner was, and how bulky the product is. Our key marketing focus now is the "Made in the USA" fact, the price point which is about $100 less than Maxtrax, our folding capability, and our 1 year FREE replacement warranty after the 1st incident.

 

I remember starting Traction Jack when I was only 16 years old in high school and not knowing a thing about business. Now, after making connections, designing and refining the product, and getting it out there, its so satisfying to see how it's been helping people. I get messages ever so often from customers telling me how its saved them from the snow (just recently), mud troubles, deep sand when trailing, and more. I'm starting to get a great following with overland expedition groups, and guys in various states that really believe in the product/company. I've been working tirelessly the past few weeks to follow up on leads, get the product ready for the big market, and really expand our presence. I just got the magazine in the mail and 4WD Toyota Owner Magazine did an article and demo of the product. They absolutely love it so if you want to check it out at barnes n noble get the Nov/Dec issue. I've also worked with Jonathan Hansen of Overland Expo/Journal, JPFreek Magazine, Trucking Times Magazine, etc because I'm really trying to build our presence. I'd really like to do more with Land Rovers especially since I own one myself!

 

Anyways, enough chat I've added some pictures for you guys to see. I try to log on here regularly but you can get updates on FB, Instagram, or message me! I'd love to stay close with you guys and really, thank you for welcoming me into your community even though I'm out in Texas!

I'm interested in how well they work in snow. I hope someone brings a set to my Rubicon run in about a month.

(raises hand)

That would be me.....

 

Too bad nobody had them on the Lost Coast run last weekend since they did manage to sink a truck in the sand as well as some mud.
