Well, I thought it might be worth checking them out until I read the FAQ and found this:

"Are they approved for use on roads where snow chains are mandatory?

Per date, AutoSock is not approved as a snow chain according to the Önorm 5117. Nevertheless the areas where snow chains are mandatory are very limited."

The only time I would be using them would to go over the Sierra mountains and then just when chains or cables were mandatory. Otherwise, I do not travel in snow so would not be of much use.

As soon as you can get the states of California and Nevada to accept them as tire chains, let me know and I might consider them since you do make a size that will fit the truck.

Few positive resons to have this.
1. Its a great product to have in your emergency kit.
2. Looks compact, I know my chains come in a big bulky plastic container. Good to just shove this under your seat or in the rear seat bin.

^right. That's what caught my attention. Also the fact that it can be a solution to those of us who already have tire/fender clearance issues. However, [knock on wood] I have yet to get stuck on road in 4x4.

So I found this on Colorado's DOT website:
"New - probationary use of AutoSock alternate traction device will be allowed on a trial basis in
the winter of 2008/09; however, probationary approval may be withdrawn at any time."

It will be interesting to hear their findings...
