    Talking Sand Trax for mud ?

    Howzit guys.

    A while back i saw someone was selling those plastic molded sand-trax.
    After i got stuck almost onto the chassis in mud Panic kicked in as it was getting dark and the nearest recovery was far away , i resolved to digging with my hands and laying some half bricks under the wheels , after 40 mins my front wheels stood on solid ground and lucky is was enough to pull the vehicle out. . SWAMBO said "you in mud with your road slicks again !!!" ... this i assume was the last warning from her

    Muds are deffenately on my shopping list "prio. eins !!"

    Is it possible to hose trax for mud aswell?

    I dont see why not. You'll still get filthy as you would need to get them under you tyres.....

    Why not going for MET-Trax they can carry 2 tons whenever to cross a ditch and they are out of the way! So no schlep of carrying them around as they are part of your sliders and they act as steps as well! Multipurpose and they did pull my attention a lot!

    I am looking at a set as I got damage on the side with the last expidition!

    What I hear is that the plastic trax are not so good in mud, because your tyres have no grip on them once the tyres/trax are wet. rather go for the new gritted fibreglass or metrax ones.

    PS I was looking at Father Christmas' store - oops sorry, I mean Mega Mica, and I saw metal scaffold planks that would make good trax if you didn't mind the weight. They are the right length, will take a vehicle's weight over a sloot, and they have holes punched in that will give traction. And they only cost R385 each
