Track-N-Go changes your SUV into a snowmobile

This comes from the why-the-hell-didn’t-I-think-of-this file. It is basically an track add-on kit for that will work on many SUVs and pickup trucks. It is made by Track-N-Go. Other videos here. Pretty cool.
Thanks for the tip, Mike!

    I don’t know why, but I can see this giving finicky AWD systems a fit. How well does it work on a crossover, I wonder?
    Edit: according to this list of requirements, it requires a for-really-real 4WD system:
    – Automatic transmission with low range 4L
    – Automatic differential lock (or limiter slip diff.) on rear axle
    – Winter tires with regular soft compound (all seasons tires and mud tires works but not recommended)
    – Important: Use tires without studs
    – Outside tire diameter required: 31 to 35 inches (780 to 875 mm)

    – Engine: V-8 with 5 liters and up for full sized pickup truck and Large SUV’s also V6 for mid-sized pickup truck and Off-road SUV’s

      I had very little time on this post, thanks for filling in the gaps.

    This would appear to fall into the “No excuse to stay home from work” accessory group.

    Either I’ve seen this system before or it’s been done by other outfits. I remember wondering what the leverage the tracks had on the hubs was, and whether that exceeded design parameters.
    God I’m boring. Why can’t I just see a jeep on tank tracks and say, “fuck yeah!”?

      We are a riot at parties.
      Well, not technically…

      Probably because you’ve spent far too much time fiddling with and replacing supposedly-robust suspension components that fail for gods-know-why. There’s no way to ignore the additional torsional load placed on the hub, spindle, and other stressed suspension components while cornering. But maybe it doesn’t matter all that much because it’s probably only designed for use up to about 20-25mph.
