    That truck is bad( except for the frame) it was on ebay before without the Mattracks. Id buy a set of em but there so darn expensive.

    1/2 ton yes, but those 14sf arent bad axles. lus the wheels are 8 lug, so if its that big of a deal you dont need to swap rims!

    The trax offer awesome floatation in the snow and mud. They are actually a really awesome set up, but I don't see them to be very functional in deep mud sice there are some many moving parts per track that mud can work itself into and destroy.

    I think they are cool, although I've been known to think "outside of the box" more than most people do. They can be a big help for flotation, I doubt they would do ya' much good on the rocks though... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    They look good in dirt, but in deeper snow they aren't to great, I saw a sami pulling one of those on a burb or crewcrab that got stuck in some snow... ill stick to tires

    I saw the same picture. It was a joke sent in by the Samuri owner claiming he was pulling the crewcab. It was actually the other way around.

    Look at that guys feedback rating, 76%. I wouldn't buy a candy bar from his kids! When it drops below 90%, you need to reregister. My guess is the guy isn't to smart.
