Track N Go

Just found these on my daily internet perusal and thought I'd share.

Track N Go truck track system video

Looks like an awesome idea but I'm not convinced they wouldn't end up doing damage to wheels/tires/suspension/whatever.

I dunno.... I can plow snow with the front of my truck and its just fine. You could easily drive through everything they did with just a set of chains on and for a fraction of the cost. The nice thing about these is that it increases your snow clearance by a lot. We have some where I work both for trucks and polaris rangers. They work on hardpack well, but not in deep powder (about anything over 8 inches)

I have seen a few people make universal type track systems but I have to admit this is the first one I have seen where you drive onto the tracks and not dismount the tires, and I don't see this being as effective as those versions. I see those in deeper non-packed snow getting snow piled up between the tire and the... treadmill attachment contact points and making it more of a hassle.
