I just watched the video.. didn't realized it doubles as a shovel as well. Pretty cool.

Kind of bulky and not portable-ish but I'm just being picky.

But very pricey.

It's great for those that offroad regularly but for those that are like weekend warriors and etc, the TRED will suit us just fine
Agreed. Plus the TREDs come in a great variety of colors :) TRED also has a lifetime warranty vs MaxTrax only having a two year warranty. That's nice for when you are breaking off the knobs years down the road.

Here is a comparison article:

Smittybilt also makes a set similar to the MaxTrax for $150. Here's a comparison on Expedition Portal.

I got the Smittybilt ones and have used them in snow and sand and they're great as shovels for both. The tricky part is getting it under the tires so the tires catch. Took a lot of digging but got me out of both snow and sand.

This is the storage/carrying method I settled on.

Once I reach the area where I will be going off-road then I will switch to carrying them on the roof rack.



I ordered them from Cruiser Outfitters in Sandy UT.
