Id be interested in seeing a photo of maxtrax cracking.
Seems this would have been a good opportunity for them to crack:
temp hovering around 0 deg, using them as a base for a hydraulic jack holding approximately 1800 lbs on a 4"x4" jack base. THe jack actually turned the maxtrax inside out. When we were finished changing the tire, the maxtrax returned to its original position, no worse for wear.
Here are some action shots of our maxtrax:
Here they are being used to bridge on a very unstable mud bank. center had completely washed out and undercut, wouldnt hold human weight, but we took 6 trucks across with maxtrax. Going over meant certain rollover. Wouldnt want them to break here!
Here, we used them as a ramp up a 100degree rock face. Pulling full force with the winch against them. At one point the ramps were U shaped. Cheapys arent going to handle that at all!

When laid flat, as in when attached to a roof rack, what is the height of one Maxtrax? Also, when nested together, what is the height of two Maxtrax's?
Ill take some measurements and post them here tomorrow.
