Designed to be Portable – Fits in Any Size Vehicle, Resilient – Conquers Any Terrain, and Versatile – Multifunctional in Vehicle Recovery Situations.
Traction Jack is Unmatched by Competitors.
        & Reliable
Traction Jack, established in 2009, was designed to solve one simple problem – having a traction device to get you unstuck that was easy to store and tough enough for any situation. They’re also useful as vehicle levelers (for parking with or without roof top tent), as a solid platform for a jack to change a tire, and to bridge over very small gaps/obstacles when folded in half.
Useful in multiple scenarios
Assembled in Texas
Easy to store
2 folding traction boards

Each Vehicle Recovery Kit includes two (2) folding traction boards. When folded they are half the size of other boards, making them easy to store, but when they are unfolded they are longer providing 20% more traction for maximum vehicle recovery!


If you’ve ever found yourself in a situation where you lose traction and get stuck it’s frustrating, it’s unnecessary, and it can become costly in many ways. Whether you drive a 4×4 off-road, live in a wintery climate, or drive a commercial vehicle in challenging terrain, Traction Jack is all you need to make your life easier

How to get your car unstuck


Once you lose traction, stop and put the vehicle in PARK before making it worse.


Get out of your car and start putting a game plan together for getting unstuck.


Start digging/clearing a flat gradual path in front of the tire and underneath to get the Traction Jack (TJs) as far under the tire as possible


Once you clear a flat, gradual path (DON’T DIG DOWN), lay the Traction Jacks as far under each tire as possible so it has good contact.


Once they’re properly placed, put the vehicle in a low gear if possible and slowly drive out. The TJ should slide into the hole as the vehicle is freed.


Once you get momentum DON’T STOP or you may get stuck again. If you get stuck again repeat steps 1-4.

These Traction Jacks are the best things since sliced bread! We were working parking for the yearly Bull Sale at the County Fairgrounds and it was miserable and rainy so the entire parking area (that is normally just grass parking) turned into one huge mud pit. We had everything; cars, trucks, motor homes, trucks pulling livestock trailers, and even these big 4×4 trucks that were sunk into the mud and stuck. We had never even heard of these Traction Jacks, but a guy who had won a set of them in a raffle somewhere offered to let us try them as he had never even had a chance to try them yet either. Well in the two days….

I was traveling south on I75 two days before Christmas, headed to Illinois for the holiday. It was very treacherous because it had been snowing hard all morning and there was no evidence that a snow plow had hit the interstate yet.  About a mile north of Bluffton, Ohio I noticed a white minivan in the ditch. I pulled over to the side and grabbed my traction jack pads that I had packed because I thought if anything I would have to use them on myself. Once I got to the van I realized they were in a pretty rough situation, the van was sitting about six feet lower than the highway and the family…

Good afternoon!

I’ve been testing the set of tracks we picked up extensively over here in the snow and even recovered an EarthCruiser awhile back with them. Have you made any headway with local departments on interest in them? Would be glad to demo them for the forest service, state pd, etc.

After using them for awhile I’m thoroughly impressed, I’ve definitely abused them well, WELL beyond their intended purpose and they’ve held up extremely well with only one non-structural crack so far.

Finally got myself stuck enough to bring out the Traction Jacks.

Took WAY more time getting stuck than it took to get un-stuck.

As a 4 wheeler, having the right gear is essential. Getting stuck sucks. Getting home is priceless. I have used Traction Jack since 2014. In fact I was the first guy who bought the first set. I was really sold on the Maxtrax; and I don’t have a money tree at home. So I was really skeptical about purchasing something new to the market.

What sold me on these was the folding feature. And they looked really strong. So I jumped on it when I saw the price. Never regretted it. To this day….

Anyone tried these out as an alternative to Maxtrax? I like the fact that they are fold able and easier to store away. Anyone have any experience with these??



When it comes to gear for the off road enthusiast, many people opt for bigger tires, new metal bumpers, lockers and roof racks.  After these individuals spend hours waiting for a buddy with a tow rope or a winch to come extract them from inevitably getting stuck, they decide that recovery gear may be necessary!

Designed for Efficiency
Traction Jack was designed to get you unstuck. The recovery boards store out of the way in your vehicle and extend to 52 in. of traction when you get stuck. You can use them for a bunch of different applications as well since they are flat; such as leveling blocks, jack base, and more!
Product Design
We started from scratch when designing the Traction Jacks. It
took 5 years, 6 prototypes, and 3 different manufacturing
materials to get where we are today. Traction Jack was born in
Texas and to this day is proudly assembled in Texas! We are
confident in our production model which sells in 4x4 specialty
shops, dealerships, and online around the world today.
