MAXTRAX MKII SAFETY ORANGE (MTX02SO)

MAXTRAX MkII Safety Orange (MTX02SO)

MAXTRAX is unique in the vehicle recovery market, because MAXTRAX is lightweight, quick, and easy to operate by just one person if necessary, and there is no need for a second vehicle or even an anchor point. There are also no stressed components on the vehicle such as recovery points. MAXTRAX works in sand, mud, slush, and snow. Using MAXTRAX is also considerably safer than using other vehicle recovery gear, as everything is done at a gentle pace and without yanking, pulling, pushing, or lifting loads. Safety Orange is the signature color of MAXTRAX and is easily the most popular among owners. (Two orange MAXTRAX Telltale Leashes are not shown, but are included with each pair of MAXTRAX.) 

 

MAXTRAX Safety Orange is also the most visible and easily found when the MAXTRAX are buried in the mud, snow, or sand. MAXTRAX boards are also available in the following colors:


MAXTRAX boards nest together very tightly, and four boards nested together are nearly the same size as two boards. While there are many ways to transport the MAXTRAX, the two most common are:


Four or even two MAXTRAX boards are usually plenty to recover a stuck vehicle. But in some soft, sloped, or very slippery conditions, you might want to connect or peg your MAXTRAX boards using the MAXTRAX Fixing & Linking Kit.







MAXTRAX MKII DESERT TAN (MTX02DT)

MAXTRAX MkII Desert Tan (MTX02DT)

Desert Tan MAXTRAX are the choice of special forces in desert areas, or tactical tan douchebags playing adult army man in their kustum tactical golf carts. Or, you just might like the color tan; it does look great.


Some will argue that all MAXTRAX should be in a bright color to prevent them being lost in the mud.  That may be so, but we know of nobody who has lost MAXTRAX because he was unable to find them. 


Two orange MAXTRAX Telltale Leashes are not shown, but are included with each pair of MAXTRAX.







MAXTRAX MKII BLACK (MTX02BK)

MAXTRAX MkII Black (MTX02BK)

There's a reason Ninjas wore black. Black MAXTRAX are very inconspicuous and easily hidden when mounted to the top your vehicle's roof rack.  In that location, the black MAXTRAX will hardly be visble.


Most who buy black will do for stealth.  Other MAXTRAX users want them to be seen and will prefer the MAXTRAX Safety Orange, and there is nothing wrong with that so long as you don't lie about it.


Two orange MAXTRAX Telltale Leashes are not shown, but are included with each pair of MAXTRAX.







MAXTRAX MKII OLIVE DRAB (MTX02OD)

MAXTRAX MkII Olive Drab Green (MTX02OD)

MAXTRAX Olive Drab were first made for a United States Marine Corps contract, and it looks great. The OD Green MAXTRAX are John's favorites. 


Some will argue that all MAXTRAX should be in a bright color to prevent them being lost in the mud.  That may be so, but we know of nobody who has lost MAXTRAX because he was unable to find them.

MAXTRAX MINI PAIR (MTXMP)

MAXTRAX Mini Pair (MTXMP)

The MAXTRAX Mini Pair is a shrunken-head version of the MAXTRAX MkII Safety Orange, and is designed for smaller vehicles or vehicles with space constraints. MAXTRAX Minis are so small that they can easily be stored and transported inside the vehicle.


MAXTRAX Mini shares width and height dimensions with the MAXTRAX MkII boards, but is only 25" long (the MkIIs are 45" long). A pair of MAXTRAX Minis weighs only 7 lbs. (the MkIIs weigh 14 lbs.) Even four MAXTRAX Minis nested together feel lighter and are considerably easier to handle than a pair of MAXTRAX MkIIs.


The MAXTRAX Mini Pair comes with two MAXTRAX Mini boards and two MAXTRAX Telltale Leashes. Orange color only.

 

The MAXTRAX Minis will nest over the MAXTRAX JaxBase and under the MAXTRAX MkIIs. All MAXTRAX boards nest together very tightly, and four boards nested together are nearly the same size as two boards. If you want to mount your MAXTRAX boards on the outside of your vehicle, MAXTRAX offers two excellent mounting systems:


Four or even two MAXTRAX minis are usually plenty to recover a stuck vehicle. But in some soft, sloped, or very slippery conditions, you might want to connect or peg your MAXTRAX Minis using the MAXTRAX Fixing & Linking Kit.

Give MAXTRAX a try and you will be very satisfied with the results.







MAXTRAX JAXBASE ONLY (MTXJB)

MAXTRAX JaxBase Only (MTXJB)

The MAXTRAX JaxBase is a platform for the Hi-Lift Jack and other off-road jacks. JaxBase is similar in concept to the Hi-Lift Jack Off-Road Base and ARB Jack Base in that it accepts the base of the Hi-Lift Jack and spreads the weight over a wider area to prevent the jack from sinking into soft ground. However, JaxBase will also act like a standard MAXTRAX Mini and may be used together with the MAXTRAX Mini as sand ladders like the other MAXTRAX products. JaxBase will also nest under the MAXTRAX Mini and MAXTRAX MkII boards for very compact storage and transport.


The JaxBase is sold a la carte and comes with nothing else. Orange color only.


If you want to pair your JaxBase with a MAXTRAX Mini, take a look at the MAXTRAX Mini + JaxBase Combo, which is composed of one JaxBase, one MAXTRAX Mini, and two MAXTRAX Telltale Leashes.


A very nice set-up is nesting the MAXTRAX Mini + JaxBase Combo under the MAXTRAX Mini Pair to form a four-piece combination of one JaxBase and three MAXTRAX Minis in a very compact and lightweight package that is barely larger than two mini boards nested together. These four mini boards feel lighter and are considerably easier to handle than a pair of the standard MkII boards. If you want to mount this compact combination on the outside of your vehicle, MAXTRAX offers two excellent mounting systems:


Four or even two MAXTRAX are usually plenty to recover a stuck vehicle. But in some soft, sloped, or very slippery conditions, you might want to connect or peg your MAXTRAX using the MAXTRAX Fixing & Linking Kit.







MAXTRAX MINI + JAXBASE COMBO (MTXMJB)

MAXTRAX Mini + JaxBase Combo (MTXMJB)

The MAXTRAX Mini + JaxBase Combo includes:


The MAXTRAX Mini + JaxBase Combo is designed to provide a pair of very effective sand ladders, with one of the sand ladders doubling as a base for the Hi-Lift Jack. If you want a pair of MAXTRAX Minis only, or if you wish to add a pair of MAXTRAX Minis on top of your Mini + JaxBase Combo, look at the MAXTRAX Mini Pair.


Combining of the MAXTRAX Mini + JaxBase Combo and MAXTRAX Mini Pair will result in a very compact combination of sand ladders and jack base that is still smaller and easier to handle than a pair of the MAXTRAX MkII. This four-piece combination is also very amenable to storage and transport on your vehicle using the excellent:


Four or even two MAXTRAX are usually plenty to recover a stuck vehicle. But in some soft, sloped, or very slippery conditions, you might want to connect or peg your MAXTRAX using the MAXTRAX Fixing & Linking Kit.







MAXTRAX MOUNTING PIN SET (MTXMPS)

MAXTRAX Mounting Pin Set (MTXMPS)

The MAXTRAX Mounting Pin Set is composed of four unique keys that will secure two or four MAXTRAX to your vehicle's roof rack or roof bars. The keys are constructed of black nylon and stainless steel and are very easy to mount to your vehicle. The keys are not ridiculously large because they don't have to be. Even four MAXTRAX weigh only 30 lbs., so these four keys are more than up to the task of securing them. Once the flaps are turned to lock the MAXTRAX in place, a hole in the stainless key body permits fitment of a small padlock or TSA-style lock. Designed for MAXTRAX MKII only; the Mounting Pin Set will not fit the first-generation MAXTRAX.







MAXTRAX REAR WHEEL HARNESS (MTXRWH)

MAXTRAX Rear Wheel Harness (MTXRWH)

The MAXTRAX Rear Wheel Harness is very easy to install onto a vehicle's spare wheel and will transport up to five MAXTRAX (four if they are dirty and not stacked tightly). Access to the MAXTRAX is very easy at chest level and there is no need to climb the vehicle to access the MAXTRAX. Furthermore, carrying the MAXTRAX on the spare wheel means no dumping of sand or mud onto the vehicle after use. There is a nylon pouch inside the spare wheel for holding your MAXTRAX Telltale Leashes and the MAXTRAX Fixing & Linking Kit.


If you prefer to store your MAXTRAX boards on the sides or top of your vehicle, take a look at the MAXTRAX Mounting Pin Set.







MAXTRAX FIXING & LINKING KIT (MTXFLK)

MAXTRAX Fixing & Linking Kit (MTXFLK)

The MAXTRAX Fixing & Linking Kit includes eight pegs and four straps that may be used together with the MAXTRAX ladders in very slippery or unusual conditions. The pegs are staked through the MAXTRAX MKII mounting holes to secure the boards in very slippery or sloped conditions that might allow the MAXTRAX to move. The straps combine two MAXTRAX ladders into a single, continuous track. The pegs and straps are made of the same reinforced nylon as the MAXTRAX ladders in Safety Orange color to minimize the risk of loss in muddy conditions. The peg heads have holes for attachment of a lanyard to facilitate pulling them out of the ground.







MAXTRAX TELLTALE LEASH (MTXL)

MAXTRAX Telltale Leash (MTXL)

MAXTRAX Telltale Leashes come standard with every MAXTRAX to make finding and recovering your MAXTRAX after use as easy as possible. Sometimes these leashes get lost or damaged during use. If you ever require replacements, they are available. Sold by the pair.
