I found a great deal on sand ladders and I'm considering putting together a group buy.

As the name inplies, sand ladders are used to recover a vehicle stuck in sand or other soft ground. Considering the amount of desert trips we make, they are a necessary piece of recovery equipment.

The ladders are sold in pairs and are made from used, surplus PSP (Perforated Steel Plank) and have a texture coat (similar to what is used in spray-in bed liners) applied for additional traction. They are just under 5' in length and 16" wide. They weigh roughly 25 lbs per ladder. I've seen them on a variety of sites, prices ranging from $130 to $250 plus freight.

I've found somewhere to purchase them for $95 which INCLUDES SHIPPING anywhere in the continental USA!

I would like to get an idea as to how many peeps are interested so I can relay the info to the vendor and possibly get a better price. Ultimately, I'd like to open this up on big blue, but because of their rules, I may not be able to. Regardless, I'll still work on something for everyone over here since this is where my "loyalties" ultimately lie.

I think you can set up a GB in the blue forums. I believe you just need a forum sponsor to sponsor it.
That's gonna be the same deal here. We are currently in the process of getting a couple of forum vendors. Otherwise you end up with all sorts of people setting up group buys and vendors advertising left and right. Just ends up being chaotic.

As far as sand ladders go, I really like these: they are made by Bushranger (same people who make the X-Jack). And at $75/ each, you can't beat it. It's just a matter of finding it in the U.S. of A

I talked with Chris @ Lucrum and he sponsored the group buy. We'll see what kind of interest there is and go from there.

The nice part about the steel sand ladders is that they can also be used to bridge short spanses if needed.

Matt, those X-trax look awesome!

I would definitely be interested in a group buy for these. Just let me know how much when it comes down to it.
