I was looking at a topic about the lift on a Excursion. Got me to thinking about a product I saw awhile ago. These look really cool. Anybody have a set?

Have you priced those things?

No. They don't give a price on the web site. I can only imagine

How did they do for off roading?

they also make them for ATV's... ~2500 for the cheap set... 4000+ for the good stuff.

A company here in my town makes custom sets of those. Its pretty cool to see some of the vehicles that they install them on.

i couldn't imagine trying to steer with those. i KNOW that my stock tie-rods would buckle.

Those things were awesome in the snow and sand.
From what I could tell (from the show), they installed fairly easily.

What is the top speed you can go with mattracks on.

Seen them on Chevy trucks down on Padre Island. (Not that you would need them there) They didn't look all that sturdy in action, lots of track movement/slap. Turning radius seems to really suck, though that may have just been the driver.

Fastest I've seen one was abuout 20MPH and the truck seemed to be working pretty hard.

I see they make a tractor model, that could be very useful.

Yeah, but will they match the lift-kit and mudflaps?
