CHIEFWAHO Posted February 10, 2016 Report Share Posted February 10, 2016 We have a Jeeping trip (Easter Jeep Safari Moab, UT) scheduled towards the end of March. The preferred route is I-70 through Colorado. Only if weather forecast allows, if not it will be the southern route. CHIEF our HDT Volvo VNL610, bed does not have room for chains. I do believe that there is enough room to run an alternate traction device. I want to be prepared. I have been looking at the Autosock. http://www.autosock.com/en/products.html From internet searching it looks as the Autosock is now approved for Colorado (CDOT). https://www.codot.gov/library/Brochures/chain-up-tips-for-passenger-vehicles https://www.codot.gov/news/2012-news-releases/08-2012/chain-law-requirement-begins-tomorrow "The alternate traction control device known as the AutoSock™ remains an approved device in Colorado. Commercial vehicles (both single and double-axle) exceeding 26,000 Gross Vehicle Weight or vehicles carrying 16 passengers or more have the option of using AutoSock™ rather than chains. This traction control device is a fabric that slips over a vehicle’s outer driving wheels, providing extra traction on snowy and icy roads. It also can be installed over the tire in less time than traditional chains." Anyone have firsthand experience with the Autosock? Please comment.
