Yes you can mount traction boards to your Jeep as long as it is a 2 door wrangler. if this is a 4 door, you can mount it offset from the center, and it will stick out from the rear of the Jeep. If the traction board was centered on the rack, it will block the rear set of doors from opening. SO the way to solve that is offsetting it more to the rear.
Mine will be an Unlimited, so offset will be the way. Good to know.

Yes unfortunately offset is the only way. We are currently working with rotopax to develop a traction board the same size as the 4 gallon to better cater to our Pak Rax customers. Stay tuned!

I'd appreciate seeing images of the 4 door MaxTrax setup. Ideally, combined with a Rhino Rack Backbone installed. Do the mounts of the tow systems interfere with each other, restrict mounting locations. The Rhino Rack cannot be relocated, can the Trail Rax? Cheers.

Maxtrax will need to be offset to the rear of the Jeep to ensure the rear door is able to open. See pictures for reference.

Awesome, thanks. I guess that's an issue with mounting MaxTrax using any option in that location. They are super long. I guess the best option is similar to what's shown. I have a 4 person iKamper RTT which interfears with this setup unfortunetely.

So what and how is it offset? Is it the backing plate? How do you extend the mounting point (with MaxTrax Pins) further back? I'd appreciate seeing images of the recovery boards mounted to the backing plate and how it's offset. Thanks!

To offset you would basically off set the mounting of the traction boards to the pak rax and have the rear of the traction boards hang off the end of the Jeep. You will not be able to use the pins but can mount it in other ways like using tie downs or bungie cords. We do not have any images of traction boards mounted but there are customers out there that have done it.

@TrailRax Picking up my Trailrax from you soon. Do you know if Justin had to modify anything for his Axe / shovel mount and further, do you know what mount that is?

You should not have a problem mounting it to our Pak Rax. Try Equipt1.com they are out of Utah in SLC. The mount is called the K9 shovel and Axe mount. Should be in stock.
