If the most handy thing we took on our 2017 Flagstaff Trip was our MaxTrax Mark IIs (for obvious reasons), the second most was the combination of the TruXedo Deuce Tonneau Cover and the TruXedo TonneauMate Under-Tonneau Toolbox on our 2011 F150 XL Project Truck.
In our arrogance, we prayed for snow. The snow gods delivered with gusto.
Flagstaff, Arizona, is a bit strange when it comes to snow. Some years, there's so little that the ski resort doesn't even open. Other years, there's so much snow that it's nigh impossible to get around outside of main roads. This time around, it was the latter, and it wasn't necessarily a disaster, since we came well-prepared with a host of recovery gear. The stars of the show were the MaxTrax Mark II Traction Aids which really helped save our bacon on more than one occasion as we tried (in vain) to make it back to some of our favorite trails in the woods surrounding the San Francisco Peaks.
