I have seen those up here mounted on a Ford Excursion at the local ski hill. It looks like they gave the ford a 10" lift just to stuff those under. Pretty cool though.

I would LOVE to get a set for one of my Geo trackers ... I wrote the company and they have adapters to put on the same ones they use for ATV 4 Wheelers.

They'd be GREAT in the snow! ... only thing is they are a little pricey :(

It shouldnt effect it at all. They just bolt on like you bolt your tires on. The computer really wouldnt know that you have them installed.

That would probably make them work all the better then too ... I can think of other things to rack the credit card up with though :)

Built a prototype a few years back for Yellowstone Nat. Park. We never got to play with the tracks on at the plant though. Full active air bag suspension and a sliding rag-top. Pretty cool. The "designer" left and started his own company to produce it for them. I think this pic is actually of the rip-off model, they're damn near identical.

From what I have heard they are around $30k for the whole deal. There are some other things to do to them other than just bolting them up to the hub but there is not much work involved.
I talked to mattracks directly about 5 months back and they said they would bolt right on without any other modification needed. Just unbolt your wheels and bolt them right up. You would also get a significant amount of lift by running mattracks without any other suspension mods needed. They run a little over $25,000 for our XK's. Thats way to much $$$ if you ask me.

Definitely agreed. Even if I had that kind of cash laying around, I could never justify purchasing a mod that cost more than the vehicle was worth. But maybe if we got 300 forum members to pitch in $100 we could hold a raffle...

Not only that but how often would you actually be able to use them. It only snows a few months out of the year and they wouldnt be practical if there isnt snow on the ground cause you can only go up to like 40-45 mph with them on dry pavement.

We have two f-250s with them on at the base I am stationed at. For the f-250 they are even more expensive. we also have a whole bunch of other cool stuff. Including Sno Cats, Polaris side by sides with tracks and a ton of snowmobiles. Mattracks are way too expensive around 30,000. I would look into other manufacturers that cost a lot less
