Last time I checked, my `04 Baja Turbo had an axle in the rear. I'm not quite sure I buy that arguement but it sounds like the dealer really wants to make you happy.

Personally - chains? really?

I've driven through snow that drifted up 16"+ and ice and slush in some good all season tires and had no difficulty manuevering on the road whether I'm parking or driving on the highway. Hell I'll even admit to stupid passing manuevers in said conditions.

Chains just really seem unnecessary for me - in midwest south/central Indiana.
