    My god that is just highway robbery. I went to pick up an extra strap at the truck stop and couldnt believe my eyes when it said 42 frickin dollars for 1 strap .. Unreal ..idk why people think us drivers are rich but the way it seems everybody wants to take our money we must be living like kings out here. If only they knew.

    iv always wondered if it would be more advantageous in the long run to buy stainless steel chains over carbon due to their far superior longevity. besides they just look nicer too. but like post #2 said buy chain in bulk in a drum that would be the cheapest (per foot)

    His name and the name of his company escapes me at the moment. But the guy that owns the company that only runs big hoods with houses on them pulling steps and hauling jet engines, used to have chrome chains.
