In the winter season, I used to pull out the tire chains going into the mountains and throw them under the tires until I had them on the tires.

Yeah, these are worth some $$ today. I think they did say utility truck.

This is just for home decoration. It's not going anywhere. And it weighs too much to carry around!

Those plastic wheel chocks they sell, I didn't really care for. They I saw the X-Chock Tire Locking Chock. My 2015 FR 294QBLE didn't move.
I'm sure many of you have heard the military acronym, RTFM, which stands for Read The Instruction Manual.

I think we need one here: RTFP. Read The Original Post.

Another one that would be useful would be RTFT. Read The Entire Thread.
