ADVENTURE TRAVEL ENTHUSIASTS DEDICATED TO OVERLAND EXPLORATION
I am sold on my X-bull traction boards as they've held up great under normal usage for me. If anyone is on the fence here's a good video showing the comparison.

Mounting is a big difference with these. Maxtrax sit on top of each other so much nicer. I think the $70-$80 option is fine, but I would suggest spending the $80 on a Hilift and strap and save your cash until you can buy something that will do its job without concern. I love cheap copies but there are times that a copy will not do what it is supposed to, it will only look like it.
LOL, just watched this vid a cpl hours ago. Excelent comparrison. Have not used my Xbulls yet, time will tell.
Does anyone on here have any preferences or "best" ways to carry these? They are big, bulky and MUDDY when they have been used. I have seen them on top, on the spare tire, etc etc
