ShurTrax Full Size Pickup ShurTrax Traction Weight

Get better control on your Full-Size or Heavy-Duty Pickup with 400 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 Full-Size Pickup ShurTrax traction weight is designed to fit in the truck bed of almost any full-size pickup (60” x 56” x 3” / 152 x 142 x 7.5 cm, with 48” / 122 cm between wheel wells). Simply place in your truck bed, secure in place with 4 tarp straps, and fill with up to 50 gallons (189 L) of water to add up to approximately 400 lbs. (182 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. 

ShurTrax offers a safer and cleaner alternative to dangerous and messy loose tubes of sand, bags of salt, cement blocks, or cord wood. 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 full-size pickup trucks from all manufacturers including:


Cadillac Escalade EXT Chevrolet Silverado Chevrolet Avalanche
Ford F-150 pickup Ford F-350 pickup Dodge Ram pickup
GMC Sierra pickup Lincoln Mark LT Nissan Titan
Toyota Tundra    
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.

    Full Size Truck Bladder

    Posted by Robert Joseph Swartz on Oct 20th 2022

    This is the second bladder I've bought. The first bladder lasted about 5-7 years. When I was checking it out getting it ready for winter I noticed the seam had let go. When I have installed it the bladder does increase my traction, the bladder is very stable as I don't feel sway when making turns. Great product that is why I bought another one. I am however sorry to see that it is made in China. I'm a firm believer in Made in America.

    Traction aid

    These Traction aids only last one winter. Getting tired of having to replace them after one use. The edge seams fail. BTW, I do fill them correctly! Not Happy! Ernie

    Shurtrax Full Size Traction Aid SHU10056

    Posted by Carrie Miller on Nov 22nd 2020

    My husband and I won't buy the Shurtrax brand water bladder again. Both of us drive full size trucks and have used these water bladders in our trucks for many years and been very happy with them. However, we recently had to replace the bladder in my truck after many years of good service. We ordered the new bladder not knowing it is now made in China. I would not have bought it if I'd known that. The new product appears to be thinner than the previous models and the white filler tube area is more difficult to use than the old models. We would have returned it but the box it arrived in had already been recycled. We are disappointed. I do not recommend the current product.

    Traction bags

    Posted by Cliff Randall on Sep 7th 2019

    My first 400lbs bag split at the seam after 60 days. They sent me a replacement bag yesterday (wrong size 100lbs) and it split at the seam while I was filling it!!! Not good.

    Full Size Shurtrax

    Posted by Walt on Mar 24th 2019

    Good quality product. With this, I was able to gain traction on very steep unpaved roads in very hilly terrain. Impossible to do otherwise with 2WD.
