MAXTRAX MKII Overland Xoverland Recovery Gear Boards Tracks Xtreme How To

Pt. 1

1.) Grab MAXTRAX from one of the six glove-friendly built-in handles and use either shovel on both ends to clear debris from underneath the chassis and tires, clearing a path for the vehicle to move forward.

2.) Attach your included MAXTRAX Tell Tale Leashes to allow easier retrieval in messy conditions.

3.) Once you’ve cleared away the debris, wedge either end of the MAXTRAX’s dual ramps firmly against the tread face of your tire, as low as possible—ensuring the teeth are making good contact so you can take the easy way out with MAXTRAX.

With one pair of MAXTRAX, try to put them under the front tires where possible—your back tires will run them over for additional traction. Two pairs of MAXTRAX allow for even faster recoveries.
