Heard good things about those truck claws. I have temp chains that I use. Basically segments of chain that you ratchet through the rim to get out of a tricky spot. Haven't had to use them, but they are like this:I'm in a similar boat here- have a '17 RAM 1500 Bighorn. I put a set of KO2 on it (based on their performance in my little Patriot- 80k and still going strong), and they've been solid on those sketchy Forest Service roads on both vehicles.
I'm interested in getting chains, but I don't spend much time in the Breaks, or deep snow, so I've been putting it off. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions for this? Not looking for naysayers, party poopers, or any generally unhelpful curmudgeonery, which seems to abound on this site.

As for chaining the front, I always chain up the front first if I don't chain up all 4 wheels. The chains with cross bars and cam tighteners will give you the best traction...
