    Big Brother in Germany where they get a lot of snow says they dont work too well on deep snow or MUD,they tend to slide around.he recommends 2 solid plastic Planks ( I have seen these somewhere) which work better.

      I have two rubber floor mats stored in the passenger footwell for such an eventuality...though some poor soul would have go back to rescue them after the vehicle has managed to move.
      Carpe diem! :)

        Just put a grommet/hole in the corner, or even glue a loop on. Then tie a line from each one to your bumper/towbar/rear-towhook. Then when you get moving your mats will come with you till you reach firm ground.

          If you can rescue a bread crate from somewhere the one with the 1" deep egg crate bottom cut out the bottom and cut 2 strips from it these serve well on mud or snow and are cheap enough to loose them and easy to carry/store
