We got a chance to use these to recover Dave's d1 at the annual said I would post a link, worked great very flexible, I would not bridge with them , best price I have found is from this seller, same guy I bought mine from

Yeah...I played around with the ones I hauled over to John's...I don't think I'd want to use them for bridging a real gap though. PSP is designed to be laid out on the ground to improve the surface. (Think building a temporary runway in a flat-ish field, or a path to move equipment across soft ground.) They were heavy and pretty stiff, but for anything bigger than a small pot hole (certainly no more than 24") I doubt they would hold a Disco without bending.

oh yeah i agree 100%. i dont think you could lay them across anything without support but they could easily be turned into bridging material with some additional support. also good for sand

I was in Morroco, years ago for work. My driver was a guy named Hassan. Every time his un-airconditioned 110 would sink into the sand he would curse, drink a tea, and put the floor mats under the wheels. Happened 3 or 4 times and they worked every time. Land Rover rubber floor mats are all traction mat you will ever need.
