    Seeing if anyone is interested in a Winch Group Buy. I would need 10 people to commit to each size for the group buy price. The 8K would be $260.00 and the 10K would be $360.00. I can ship these to the lower 48 states for a FLAT $10 FEE!

    I hate to rock the boat on your deal, but I'm going to throw a little caution flag out here.

    TrailFX is not a company. It is merely a sticker on a box. The company that owns TrailFX does not deal with the general public in any way, they are a wholesale company.

    Should there be an issue down the road with the winch ... who does the buyer deal with? Are they coming back to you?

    People can deal directly with me. Doesn't seem like anyone is interested in the deal though. Thank you

    I worked for the parent company to TrailFX for over 9 years is all. Just concerned for an imported, low cost product, on a buy like this and not having support after the sale behind it. Its one thing to sell a Warn, Smittybilt, Engo, and so on .. should you leave the boards for whatever reason, the buyer can call the company direct if need be. You just can't do that with the TrailFX product.

    I would have been interested if there was a hawse fairlead option with synthetic line. I'm not a fan of the roller fairleads, and I am in the market for a winch too. But I haven't heard much about this company, sorry.

    TrailFX is a house line of re-boxed Chinese imported "product". No different than what you get from Smittybilt for example. It is owned by a wholesale distribution company based out of PA. Thus the disconnect for the end user if there are any issues.

    There are actually two public fronts to this company that many of their own wholesale customers still have no clue they exist to this day. The TrailFX product is not sold on these sites though to protect this "secret".
