I called a few places in the phone book here in Nashville when I bought my chains. Look for sling and rigging joints. The place I ended up getting them from had "used" 3/4 chain. It looked brand new when I got there. I got 12ft for $4 per foot. each 3' section weighs 25#. I just run my feeder chain thru the end link. Call around shipping heavy chains may cost a shit load so driving a few miles may be worth while.
