We have Goodyear duratrac tires, for our 4x4 truck with a winch. We only chain up when the snow is deep or its muddier than hell. Honestly, I don't know what else you can use besides chains other than walking... Maybe lockers on your truck.

That would be my only other suggestion.

From what I've heard Maxtrax work really well for getting un-stuck, but I've never tried them. Shovel and hi-lift for me, but I don't usually get myself into situations I'd need to use them. Typically just deep snow on the lake is the worst I deal with. Sometimes sand can get a bit tricky where I hunt as well.

I'd like to formally apologize to mtmuley. I've reached the limit of my 33' ko2's, two different times this winter. The limit is very clearly 14-16 inches of fresh powder.
Still an incredible all around tire though.

Nice. We had 30 inches recently. My Coopers weren't even tested. Wife has Toyo MT's on her rig (her idea not mine) they did ok. mtmuley

I carry hi-lift jack,come-a-long,straps,chains, 10t jack,board scraps ,etc...in my trucks & I keep tire chains in the Tacoma .
Need to get some chains for F150 now. For mud mainly.
Using Kenda Klevers on both trucks now.
Only time I have ever chained up in NM is once in the Pecos in Tacoma & every time I drove the propane delivery truck in ANY wet weather here.....
Trick to not getting stuck in NM is wait or not go.
