I think u could be right there Bouncer!!!

Cant imagine carrying 2 of those around plus the rope, but they, like all other recovery gear are priceless when needed. Where does one stop buying all this stuff ? We seem to be focused more on getting UNSTUCK, rather than enjoying the weekend knowing we had a great time without getting stuck.

That's a wild looking bit of gear.I like that idea of just having the wheels in line though as duals,that would be habdy in some situations ,could also make things worse in sand if the extra wheel were to be stuck out into the real soft stuff and the main wheel would be doing nothing over the wheel ruts,Talking about Dual wheels or should i say in this case dual tyres anyone se those dual tyres the Qld Police were trialling on the Commodores back about 1992 in Brisbane.

Saw those. Brilliant idea but just too dam expensive for Joe Average. Cost about 2.5times the cost of a normal setup.
Cops were testing them around the old Surfers race track and could run just as hard with one flat tyre as with two good ones.

Just too dam expensive...

Didn't these used to be advertised on here by an ExplorOz employee???

It was a guy who had them on his rig pic on his 60 series Cruiser???

Yeah mate

These things have been around for years. There was a bloke in Queensland who made a swag of them some time ago and a Member here was selling them for him(I don't think the bloke is still a member).

The item has limited applications in my opinion and as you say, something of last resort.
