    heres a youtube that I found - I just noticed that weed in the foreground which looks like a tiny one. So if this is an R/C .... pretty incredible detail!

    I'm thinking it would be worse in the passenger seat!

    After a closer look, I'm going with fake also. That female passenger would have been kicking and screaming at the driver. lol

    Thanks to the ever vigilant ADVrider attention to detail, we now know the truth! Now this. Can bananas ride, and what do they ride?

    :dllama: Seriously, kudos to those who figured it out.

    Chains for 35s?

    I know we don't use them much, but they'll throw up roadblocks here from time to time at the passes and require them regardless of tires and 4WD.

    I'm just wondering on what you guys might use, if you have them. I think my biggest problem is that for whatever reason, it's not a common enough size, or just sold out, but I don't think I'll be able to get a set before traveling.

    They would be expensive.
    Usually winter rated tires will do if you don't have chains.
    I carried chains in my work truck for years, in case I had to run a road where they were mandatory.
    Gave them away a while back, never used them.

    You have to plan ahead for chains. When everyone wants them, they aren't available.

    I usually get the full 'bar chain'. If you will be forced to chain up, it's going to be deep. Plus this chain works for mud. In mud, I'd put them on the front.

    Yeah, I was a little shocked when I started looking at prices for them. That's sort of how recovery gear is though. Expensive for something you hope you never actually use.
