try a truck stop. Or go to a whse and "borrow" one from them.

i got mine from walmart. i live on a pretty decent slope. they have two kinds there. one is cheap and plastic(orange) and the other is cheap and rubber(black). i went with the rubber. theyve held up on arizona summers for 2 years now and i keep about 1000 lbs in the boat at all times too

I use RV, or you can hit up an Aviation supply house

Home depot had them in the trailering section. Black rubber ones. I have also seen them at walmart.

I had no idea what you were talking about when I saw this... then I saw the replies. YOu'll be able to find more online if you use the word "chock" :-) Tire chalks are what parking police use to see if you've been parked in the same spot for too long <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

I purchased mine at Northern Tool. <BR><a href="http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_13776_13776" target="_blank">http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_13776_13776</a> <BR>Nice and heavy rubber with eye bolt on one end. I have a two foot section of rope tied to it.

I use a few pieces of split firewood. Works great.

Chevy trucks,suburbans, and tahoe's have factory steel ones. Located by the jack. That's what I use.

bill_airjunky 04-03-2008 11:12 PM

Factory chocks on a Chevy? I just bought an Avalanche &amp; haven't found those yet. <BR> <BR>Try <a href="http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=96479" target="_blank">these for $8 at Harbor Freight</a>.

CampingWorld online. They even have some that don't have to touch the ground....if you are parking on dirt or muddy conditions. Rotochock I believe. Check them out. Quite a few to choose from. <BR> <BR>KV
