yeah that sucks to be having to putting on and off to wheel.... but some of the trails here are or way to much mud for MT's or even boggers or to slippery and very dangerous.. so the extra grip is a must for it.

gona be fun i have never driven with mudchains so its gona be a new experience

ah, don't be so critical man... it only takes a few ***** on the tire to catch them and keep the chain turning... it's also something more than the tires would have normally... it's only going to help..


i'm looking forward to see how they work... any difference between them and snow chains?

yeah the bungee cord was only for test fitting/ and im pretty sure they wont fall off.

with snow chains ive got no idea as ive never been near snow chains.. but i couldt drive with chains on the road for more than 100 mts or so anyway.

next weekend prolly uim gona test them and take some vids

if u see the floor theres some marks when i was moving the chains to see if they moved around the tire or get any loose

Nice!!! Never chained up for mud, but I guess when it gets slick like ice they would dig in nicely :)

Ive used chains in snow ever since I remember and I always use bungee/tarp straps, with no issues. Ive chained the front on the F150 probably more than 10 times while ice fishing, the bungees don't hold them on the just the to keep the tension tight and from slopping around and hitting something. Ive broke a couple cutting them on tree/ice but there not enough tension on them to come shooting off...

We use bungees on our heavy equipment tires, and they don't ever break or loosen. And I have gotten the Gradall stuck and had the tires with chains spinning, and never once did a chain fall of or anything.

Those WILL help, no doubt about that.
