I wanted to share a couple of photos of the superbly constructed snow chains I have fitted to my CR-01 Jeep. While anyone with a bit of time could make these, I bought them from ebay member Steinman2003 for a great price, custom made for my tires. They were slightly large when they arrived so I removed a link here and there.
I’ve been trying to upload a move of the Jeep in the snow, but having some upload issues.
The CR-01 is very capable in a few inches of snow, but the chains gave it even more confidence… I’ve wanted some ever since I saw the Tamiya Guide book showing a Toyota Hilux fitted with snow chains way back in the day...



still havent fitted the light bar and LEDs! the snow was deeper elsewhere... honest!

wow cool chains, I remember seeing them as a kid in the magazines but never got around to making or buying them which seems weird since I live in snow area too

I thought these were a great buy at $33 shipped. Would take me ages to build and time is a valuable commodity when you have a 3 year old kid!!

I have that guide book and its wicked!!!
The page 18 is a blast from the past! its the group shot at the bottom of that page! thats pure heaven to me!

That shot of the Toyota 4x4 being pulled by 14 R/C Toyota hilux's is one that as a kid i was really blown away with!!!

And alway liked the chain idea!
This looks the business bud!

The chains really suit the CR-01
