    To open up, I got this email reply from Duncan Robinson at Titan Winches when I asked him if he could do a group buy like one of his old group buys that he hosted on another forum!

    "Thanks for your interest in our Winches. I would be more than happy to set up the same deal as before with The Tacoma Forum.
    Everything is the same except I now use Stainless Steel Tube Thimbles as opposed to the Schedule 40 black pipe.( they look the same just stainless is shiny)
    We also offered discounts on Recovery gear if needed when purchased with Winch.
    Cheers
    Duncan"

    ----end email----

    We need atleast 6 people to participate and this will be linked in the Norcal FJC forum!

    If you guys do not have a winch and are shopping for a reliable one, this is your chance. Duncan from Titan Winches has agreed to have a group buy for his ultra durable Titan TW12 winch with synthetic line. Duncan is known as a meticulous person on the FJC forum and other forums when dealing with his winches and always goes the extra mile. Here he is once again pulling through for the wheeling community.

    If you look through the Titan website, you'll see that Duncan is selling the standard TW12 for $450 and the TW12 with synthetic line for $625. In this group buy, the Titan Winch with synthetic line will be $580 CAD+shipping(check your exchange rate for more accurate pricing) and will come with the following items.

    Titan TW12 winch with the Dyneema line, safety hook, chorded remote, wireless remote(already a bonus there), and as an added bonus he will throw in the tire deflators for FREE!

    Tire deflators are found here:
    http://www.titanwinches.com/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=43
    Titan TW12 with synthetic line is located here(comes with the dyneema synthetic line, safety hook, wireless and corded remote, and the hawse fairlead(check your bumper specs to make sure you do not need some kind of offset fairlead)...the solenoid is a Thompson Solenoid which is rated at 550 Amps according to my email from Duncan.

    http://www.titanwinches.com/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=3

    The Dyneema line is shown as a $220 CAD value and comes with the rock guard

    http://www.titanwinches.com/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=25

    SO basically all the items mentioned above for $580 CAD + shipping. He does ship to the U.S. and you need to contact him to setup your purchase but there is one more added bonus for those of you who are currently shopping for recovery gear, he is also open to having discounts on other recovery items on tree saver straps, shackles, etc...I will post pricing on those items when I get another email back from him.

    Additional items that can be added to your order:
    From Duncan:

    GB price(Original Price)
    18k Pulley Block $30.00($50)
    Tree Saver $25.00($40)
    ¾” shackles $8.00($14)
    Winch Extension Strap $45.00($65)
    Titan Max Compressor $110.00($150)


    Basically the package for the winch, synthetic line, and deflators will cost $450+$220+$35=$705 if purchased separately but will cost $580 CAD+shipping($569.41 U.S. as of 7/23/2012) in this group buy!

    Contact info for Duncan is as follows:
    duncan@titanwinches.com OR 905-637-1637
    just shoot him a message and I am sure he will be more than happy to help!

    Lastly, I know you guys are looking for warranty info...it is 1 year warranty for electrical and 2 years for mechanical.

    So lets get this group buy going so we can have us some winches at a discounted price!

    If you have more questions, just send me a pm or send Duncan an email and your answer will be answered quickly!

    This is a great value for a winch and is durable, stout and all you can wish for! You can look around and search to see for yourself!:D

    If you have local friends who need a winch, you can most likely share shipping to save some $$$$! Photos below taken from the titan winch site

    Awesome!

    I will keep a running list with items wanted so if you reply or pm me, I will add your name plus the items you want to purchase from Duncan Robinson at Titan Winches for this group buy. This group buy is not limited to only 6 units, but we need atleast 6 people

    1. AkaLumbajak: Winch with synthetic line combo
    2. LEDsolutions(via pm): Winch with synthetic line combo, possibly tree saver strap and recovery shackles
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    -----minimum amount of people needed to purchase----
    7.
    8.
    9.
    10.

    I also added this list of additional items that can be purchased at a cheaper cost when ordering the winch

    From Duncan:

    "18k Pulley Block $30.00
    Tree Saver $25.00
    ¾” shackles $8.00
    Winch Extension Strap $45.00
    Titan Max Compressor $110.00
    If any of these items are of interest you may want to include them. I recommend the Pulley Block / Tree Saver and shackles as a must have for recovery.
    Cheers
    Duncan"

    i emailed him and he said it would work with the under cover hidden winch mounting system (www.undercoverhwms.com) but i'd need a control box extension as well. looking into the extra cost of this now but don't count on me. money is tight at the moment even though it's a great deal.

    No problem there! Someone on the fjc forum said that they ordered extended wires from Duncan before! I think they said that you could sometimes tell him to make the wires x amount longer and he'd customize your winch! Maybe ask him about that too:)

    Same with me if this was just a little later id totally be down I just need to decide which bumper first. Since this is a much bigger winch does it have different mounting holes then a 8-10k winch?

    It fits in any bumper which can house an m8000, same bolt pattern and removable solenoid!

    Yes, removable solenoid!

    I am hoping we can get 6 so we can all take advantage of the low price!
