Welp chains don't fit - Way too big. KM2's must run smaller than I thought.

I got these: http://www.tirechain.com/315-75R16.htm#1626

The ONORM diamonds - Had read they worked well. I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything dumb fitting them - I tried shortening a few pieces up, but I'm pretty convinced they're just too big after wresting with them.

That's the size I'd need if Zack isn't taking them. I'll take them if the price is right!

How much $$ and what style? I'm about to pay $200 on 1 set of 2 tomorrow and would prefer to avoid it.... that's the tire size I'm running. 315 75 likely will not come close to fitting

Took it apart - slathered the valve block in Vaseline to seal the air leak. I think I fixed it (at least temporarily). Worst case - I will bypass switch and just direct plumb the vacuum lines.

Shacked up in Andover Ma for the night. Did 750 miles today. Missed every major East coast city DC, Balt, Philly, NYC, and Boston by coming up I 81 to I 84 to Mass Pike to 495.
Snowed in all 7 states we passed through, Va, W.Va, Md, Pa, Ny, Ct, Mass but was able to run 65-70 (towing) the whole way with only RURR, diesel, and food stops. Very nice to skip the Delaware, NJ Tpk, and George Washington Bridge back ups and frustrations. Good travel day.

or simply connect the lines directly like Dave said....

Those switches go for something like $700+ for a new replacement.

Assuming you bought the chains species for your tire size? You'll need to clip off a few links. Mine came with a set of instructions that tell you how to fit them the first time. They are nominally sized since tire sizes are, well, nominal...

As for my progress, I'm still in NJ. Not doing so well this trip. Heading out to the barn in a few to change front shocks and do a host of other "stuff"
