Get better control on your Mid-Size/Compact Pickup with 300 extra traction pounds!

Improve your handling and control in all road conditions from spring rains to winter snow with the added weight of the ShurTrax All-Weather Traction Weight. The Mid-Size/Compact Pickup ShurTrax traction weight is designed to fit in the truck bed of almost any compact pickup (56” x 48” x 3” / 142 x 122 x 7.5 cm, with 40” / 102 cm between wheel wells). Simply place in your truck bed, secure in place with 4 tarp straps, and fill with up to 40 gallons (151 L) of water to add up to approximately 320 lbs. (147 kg) of weight right where it is needed the most: over the rear wheels. Reduce axle and wheel hop, and enjoy a smoother ride, easier acceleration, and better handling in all conditions. Includes ShurTrax Traction Weight and Super Union Water Connection Fitting.

ShurTrax offers a safer and cleaner alternative to dangerous and messy loose tubes of sand, bags of salt, cement blocks, or cordwood. In some states those loose weights are illegal because they can become projectiles in an emergency stop. ShurTrax super tough vinyl chamber is UV resistant and reinforced with a woven nylon mesh. That chamber encloses die-electrically welded baffles restrained with relief holes to prevent surging on cornering, stopping and starting.

Haul up to 500 lbs. (227 kg) on top of ShurTrax. (Take care not to puncture the vinyl, or add a sheet of plywood and just load up.) When you don’t need the extra weight, simply drain your ShurTrax and fold/roll it for easy storage. ShurTrax models are designed for short or long bed mid-size and compact pickup trucks from all manufacturers including:

Chevrolet Colorado GMC Canyon Mazda pickup
Chevrolet S-10 GMC Sonoma Nissan Frontier
Dodge Dakota Honda Ridgeline Suzuki Equator
Ford Ranger Isuzu pickup Toyota Tacoma
For Step-Side pickups fold “corner ears” under before fill.


ShurTrax is covered by a 3-year No-Hassle warranty against defects in materials or manufacturing. The warranty does not cover damage from punctures, cuts, or improper installation. To make a warranty claim, simply call 866-582-9078. Please have proof of purchase available. You will be asked to cut the fill valve from your ShurTrax and return the fill valve to us at 8300 Lane Drive, Watervliet, MI 49098. We will replace your ShurTrax at no cost and will pay the return shipping to you.
