since they are clearly going to be marketed as being easier to install and remove than something like Mattracks, I want to see how easily they go on and come off.

which can apparently be seen in another video. hm.

edit: the ramps from the installation video scare me. the front end of a dodge halfton is not terribly heavy. and they did not like that thing at all. Also, bumper clearance is an issue. still, they look cool indeed. cost is probably prohibitive.

if you're going through fields of snow and muskeg, turning radius is secondary in your mind anyway.

The same should be said anytime a full sized pickup is driven.
No real arguments. My Leaf sprung F250 had the turning radius of a jetliner while in 4wd, and honestly, the amount of rats asses I gave were very minimal.

the super duties used leaf springs from the days of the 6.9 right up to I think 2003 when the 6.0L came out. they ran a split beam axle and leaf springs.

About the harshest suspension imaginable, but right up until 1993 or so they still used kingpins instead of balljoints. Tough as a keg of hardened nails.

as for this: I see that you need a rear locker (I shoulda guessed this) and preferably a front locker as well to run these. that's not cheap if you aren't running a chevy.
