    Depends on how much you run them on hot top. But the better, the better. Welded V-Bar will last a long time, even on hot top. And dig like crazy. If you run plenty of weight, your truck will feel more like a bulldozer than a light truck.

    i run tire chains alot around here when plowing gas lease roads and forestry roads. i get them from http://tirechains.com/ they are pretty close to me and usually have them next day. I also buy the heavy heavy duty, because i tend to get called out to open roads that should have a dozer on them. Load the sander up put in low and v the blade and take your time.

    just remember when or if you get stuck with chains and loaded sander your usually stuck pretty bad.

    also i have bought some through our local napa as well.
