Seen these before and I imagine they would be a blast to use if you had a cabin WAY off the beaten path in the mountains...Heck, if $$ were no object it would be worth it to slap them on the 40 the next major snowstorm just to watch the expression on people's faces :D

Good one :tongue2: :D

My reputation precedes me :hill: - At the Jeff Z discount price in a couple years you'd be looking at $9750

I don't know, but if it's coming up we'd better start talking about it! Another thing to make the snow run a breeze is tire chains! That is of course unless you have big floaty tires and lots o' powa!

I WOULD LOVE TO TRY THOSE! You have to think you could do some stupid steep stuff in those... talk about the ultimate lift ticket. Maybe we should let IanB know about these things! :thumb:

Are these Cruiser specific or does that guy just have class?

Looks like the latter :D

"Mattracks 105-M1 Track Conversion System (6 bolt pattern). These Mattracks were purchased new in 2002 and used during the winter months (2-3 times a month) to access a remote cabin in the high sierra mountains through deep snow at above 6000' elevation. They can also be used on the road, in mud, and in sand conditions (but I never used them this way, only in snow in my case). They were developed by Mattracks in Karlstad, MN. I have used them on two Toyota Land Cruisers (FJ80 and FJ40) and they have performed perfectly. They bolt right on to the wheel using the standard 6 lung nut pattern. There is one more connection made to the frame (connectors for your vehicle are provided by Mattracks at a nominal cost). They will fit most 4x4 vehicles."
