They are branded Australian, but like most things probably sourced in Asia as your research shows. X-Bull's FB page states they are an 'Australian local brand', but anyone can claim anything these days.

Thanks for the additional info on yours. The warranty is a plus. Where are yours made?

For the record I've done business with CCV and prefer to deal locally. Good luck on the collaboration.

So here's the deal with Xbull they are Chinese with an Australian front or business partner who was/is likely a distributor. Xbull has nothing to do design or development. its what does it cost for x amount of traxs. The higher number the cheaper the cost = better margins.

My traxs aka VanTraxx where made in Taiwan & china factories. Which one way the mold was stolen but it could have been just buying a set & make a mold from that... we are in the process on having them made here which is of course going to bump the price up but they will be the only USA molded traxs available...

I got a set on the first production run and can report that they worked just fine under my 9000lb van when I was stuck in the sand.

Pretty sure I've gotten shipping quotes to every one but Drizzt just need your zip brother. Have already received payment from members Gahamby and Oldbonesclimber. You can send payment to mark@veloforma.com for those that are going to be shipping out. For upadowna we can settle up when I drop them off, Rick (Ref) you be getting some $ with yours because of the shocks. Cthayn already picked his up at CCV and we got to meet briefly. Think they are on there way to Agile for there 4x4 conversion.

Just a heads up for all that ordered traxxs, expected delivery date for next shipment of Vantraxx is March 5th. I will begin to ship on the 6th and let you know via FedEx tracking.
Thanks for the support and look forward to getting these out.
Cheers,
Mark
