    My Traction Jacks showed up today... Happy to be a part of the Traction Jack family! If you are looking for a set of recovery mats contact my friends over at @TractionJack for your set. Now I need to go get stuck and try them out!!

    Never heard of those. Interested to see your comments after getting stuck, on purpose of course! They look pretty thin. What is the load rating? Time for some research.

    We picked up a pair as they fit nicely in the LR4. Haven't really used them but they are definitely thick. Nice to know they are there if I need them and Traction Jack has been a great supporter of the Northern CA Land Rover club!

    Yeah I wouldn't try to bridge with them but for the ability to fold them and tuck them away in the LR4 without the roof rack on they definitely have a niche. Worst case, if they break the traction part would still work.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the hinge.. Yes, you cannot bridge with them but they so far seem to be built very well.

    They're not recommended for bridging because the hinge buckles and doesn't allow it to stay completely flat over a rut but that doesn't mean you cannot use them to get up and over obstacles. The fact that they fold allows them to conform to objects/terrain and provides a solid surface of grip to drive over.

    I'm not on Instagram but I wish I were when you had the sale on them. I would have jumped all over that.

    I believe the code is still active. It was on a timer but if you try it might still work. BTW we are out of everything except O/Y.

    Jeff really stands behind his product, and takes care of his customers. My buddy Pedram has a set of TJ's and I'm itching for the chance to use them with my truck!

    Correct, @TractionJack (Jeff) really does a phenomenal job at taking care of his customers, I love my TJ's so far...I really need to get out some more this year so they get some more use.
