I understand the idea behind the product. It is like putting a piece of plywood in front of the drive tires. It works but not very well.

You guys are too young to remember "spray traction" it was a little 4 oz. can of silicone spray that you sprayed on the tires when stuck in the snow.

are you guys saying that the traction ramps will actually not work? There is a reason a lot of the dakar rigs, etc carry close to the same products (only a lot better quality and longer)

They definitely work. Moving vans carry them too to help them drive over ditches getting into tight driveways. They are a proven tool. I do not think this example of them would be very useful though.

The concept is right. But I use my floor mats to get other people unstuck. I don't get stuck.
