    If you live in California and go to the mountains in the winter, sooner or later you’ll encounter CHP chain restrictions. 4x4 with snow tires may get a pass. 4x4 with street looking tires, nope.

    Yup. Got chain requirements all around the Tahoe area too but so far, I've never been stopped unless the whole highway was closed.

    Seriously though I’ve never heard of stateside roads being forced modified 4x4s to chain up. Entire road closures I’ve seen but never a “you got chains?”

    I live in the mountains, one lane in and out. Last winter there was an accident and the road was all ice. There was only a little room to get by and the chp didn't want anyone sliding near the accident causing more problems.
    I always carry chains in the winter now. There are rare incidents that they may be needed.. at least for me

    Thanks guys, I should just get a set. I know I won't need them but don't want CHP to turn me around for not having them on my stock tires. Their not HT tires but they sure look like it when pack in snow.

    In my area they are getting more restrictive to keep the riff raff out.. When we get snow it gets so silly with everyone coming up from Bakersfield and other areas.. They make it incredibly unsafe and frankly they leave tons of trash behind and the traffic is insane..

    A friend of mine lives in wrightwood and says the same thing due to the traffic heading to the ski resort and snow play area. He actually had a family sledding off of his front stoop. He told them to leave and go play somewhere else and they got mad at him because it was their kids first time playing in snow. Wtf its private property. People are stupid.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
