    closer to 15 grand new, but either way, it's way too much...



    I wouldn't even know where to begin to look for used ones...

    Most of their videos that I've seen with them don't make them seem very impressive. Especially for the cost of $15k+.

    i saw an old 85 chevy for sale with mattracks. the price of the truck was like $18k with the mattracks, but if you just wanted the truck he would drop the price down to like 3k.

    :withstupid:



    i was able to climb a curb with my old 33's that was just about as high as they climbed. the only place i can see them with benefit is sand, and maybe watery mud.

    you've got to be kidding me... I'd like to see any 4wd float across snow like those things can...



    I agree with hawii that they aren't that impressive on rocks and such, but on anything soft they annihilate...



    the cost of 15k is ridiculous though, and I'd feel like an idiot driving down the road with those things on my truck... they look retarded...

    They're really intened for snow. There are places out west and such that get those 15passenger vans converted to 4wd and they use the Mattracks go give tours on snow covered mountians.



    They'll beat the hell out of swampers in most any terrain. They have a super low contact pressure so they basically float over the terrain.



    The only place they're not good for is asphalt.

    The only time those things would come in usefull for their money is if you lived on the Arctic or run a year-round ski resort. Or if you maybe owned a piece of land in florida where they have those floating island type thingies in the marshes there. Other than that, waste of moolah! Besides, those things have gotta be worse than hell on all your steering components and bearings.
