    Tire chains

    I was wondering if anyone else uses or has used tire chains on their jeep. Just used a set this week going into camp 5 miles in an unplowed dirt road. We just got a foot of wet snow on an ice base. I had never used any on my jeep before but had used some on my atv in the past. Amazed how much of a difference they make.

    Yes I have chains and have used them when the snow gets deep or it’s icy (or icy under the snow). The Jeep is like a tractor with them. But chains large enough for 37s are heavy as hell and take up space.

    I have chains for my Jeep. Haven’t gotten to use them, but carry them just in case during winter trips.

    I also have a set for my 37's.. I've only ran across one time I needed them to get home. Chp wouldn't let me through without them... of course I didn't have them then.

    Mine are V bar chains cut down from a set for a truck. A little shorter, but plenty heavy. I have four, but am only carrying two since they are heavy and take a lot of space.

    If the roads are bad enough that you have to put tire chains on well my ass is going to be sitting in a truck stop somewhere until I can move again. My life is worth a hell of a lot more than the fright I'm hauling

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.
