Durability is good, like I said in a earlier post I will stand behind out tracks, they are strong and if they fail I will replace them no problem. Our recovery tracks are for Vans and heavy overland rigs to get unstuck in sand, mud or snow or any combo. They are not made for rock crawling. There is a weak point and that's at the handles. They can crack but they are still functional, I've only seen this 3 times so it's not common.

Several reviews state the boards have cracked or breaking. I would think twice about purchasing knock offs from China. Consider the xbull to be disposable.

Buy USA made whenever possible.
We are making an alloy set here in Loveland, CO but they will be closer in the price range of $300.00 for a set possibly $350.00
Just an FYI treads and maxxtracxs are made in China I've seen the factory. Smitty built is the same made in China.

Mark,

Do you have these boards in stock in Loveland? I am picking up my van from CCV this Friday. If you have a set, I would like to pick them up then to save a little on shipping.

PM to let me know when and where.

HI Corey -

Yes have a few in stock and will be getting more in about 10 days time. We have a set in the show room at CCV so you are covered. Oh and by the way I was working on your van today

So the cats out of the bag and I know some peeps already are in the know, but I took a position at CCV and brought my products over with meÖ They are now all CCV products. The traction boards will be call VanTraxx and Derek and I will be doing some video's soon, on this and a few other products.

These tracks will be made in Loveland soon along with the alloy track and the 24" fixed tops.

Cheers,
Mark

I have some in stock and will be getting more soon. We can meet up either at CCV or on the weekend after you get back. I should have a bunch by then...

Good to hear you are working on my van. We are excited to pick it up.

I look forward to seeing you in a few days.

I highly recommend every offroad traveler have a good set of traction devices. My van would have been a total loss buried in the surf zone without them.

I have the Maxtrax, but the ones MSD is selling look good and his price is far bettter. Hopefully they come with a bright orange strap, which youíll definitely be glad you used! These things will get burried and youíll have fun trying to locate them after youíve driven past them. In hind sight, a bright colored traction device would have been a wiser decision than olive drab like the ones i purchased.
