Shurtrax

hey,

Just wondering if anyone has used these before?

ShurTrax All Weather Traction for Car, Truck, SUV and CUV's Shurtrax Store

Looking for some extra traction, this may work.

I'd find something else to use. Says you fill it up with water and well, it takes a long time for things to melt here. Would be such a b!tch to get that out of the bed come spring when it's still pretty frozen. I've used patio pavers in the past. I get the larger ones that are bout 3'x3' and they weigh close to 100 pounds each. Strap a few of them down with some good ratchet straps and they don't move at all. Can also throw stuff on top of them since they lay flat.

Im wondering too if it wasnt frozen and would slosh back and forth while turning. nothing like 400lbs of moving weight in the back of your truck. sounds unsettling.

Once it is pretty frozen, I doubt a chinook would have a huge affect on it but there will be some melting that could lead to a bit of body roll. I also don't think that their bungee cords or any bungee cords in general are good enough to secure 50 gallons of water.

It has baffles in it so it won't slosh but still Is a POS. what wrong with 4x4? When you need it. And regular mileage when you don't . Especially with winter blend .i haven't even needed 4x4 this year yet even with the duals
