The question I have is how many are most people running with? I see a mix between 2 and 4. I'm assuming if you are roaming solo 4 is probably better than 2, but if you are roaming in groups I assume that 2 is just fine.

I use two of the copycat version. I figure at 1/10th the price they are almost disposable, even if I destroy them after one use.
Well, I was planning on that but my cousin got his hand on 4 MaxTrax so he plans on giving me two and keeping 2 for himself.

We went with two boards, we travel alone but also have a winch with plenty of line if the level of stuck gets too bad for the one pair. We did get the genuine version under the buy once cry once rules, hate to have them not work when I really need them. Went with the dark green color so they don't stand out on the rig any more than they have to.

We carry four, dark green, on the roof. They blend in and don't attract much attention.

I have 2 max trax and 2 PAP, mounted 2 on each side. I got lucky and found them both about a month apart on my local Craigslist. $50 for each set!
See my threads on how I mounted them;

Went with the X-Bull copy versions (Orchish-gen 2), along with the dark olive green version so they were less conspicuous to thieves. I bought my 1st pair, but for the price, I bought a second pair on reflection of thinking they were a good value for the peace of mind they offered if and when they might be needed for a self recovery separate from a winch or relying on others for help.OBLogo-Gold_Outlined_100x.png
