Rather than fiddle around with tire chains you might look around for
a set of spot chains. Just flip a switch and they are deployed.

Does anyone have any experience with those in dirt and mud? I always thought they'd work well on icy pavement or gravel while at moderate speed, but it seems like they wouldn't get under the wheels well if going slow in dirt. Also, in dirt they'd probably act like any other debris under the wheel and slip around under there. Normal tire chains act kind of like paddles in dirt since they are secured to the wheel.

I was looking into the onspot automatic tire chains but they are upwards of $1000 for a used set. I agree that they would not be very effective in mud. Still can't find a good deal on traditional tire chains. I had another issue a couple weeks ago where I got buried in the mud again. I ended up having to park at the bottom of the hill and was not able to make it to the campsite. The search for better traction continues.

More options for driven front axles than ever before.

You just need the $$$ and time to make it happen.
