We live in the beautiful, green mountains of south-central New Mexico. Unfortunately, this year was predicted to be a light snow year and so far, it's true.
Like the other reviews, the hardest part of the install was getting the fill spout to unfold. Had to use pliers; be careful! You can damage the plastic filler neck if you use the wrong tool. Hard to gauge the 3 inch fill recommendation; we used a plastic ruler. So far, the ShurTrax is working as advertised. The added wt. helps with ride quality. Of course the 4.6L works a bit harder, but we expected that. Hopefully, we will see some snow soon and can test it as it was intended. Ours is secured with rubber hook straps and has held securely. Have hauled heavy cardboard boxes and large, full plastic storage bins on top of the ShurTrax with no problem. Some nights, the water freezes completely, but the bag has held. Thus far, a quality product that seems to work as advertised.
