You have to make mounts for the chain and have the rear end reinforced,some run them straight up and down some do it in an X.
With stock suspension 14"s are the biggest you can run,just chain it at 12" or you will get binding...

This is probably a dumb question,but what is the reason for chains?
limit the motion of the suspension for various reasons.

they make certain cars teeter for standing 3s when they wont sit by thereselfs-and on hoppers it keeps the rear locked tight for less rear bounce while hoppin ;)
