Re: Tire chains

What year truck do you have? And what size tires? What rims? I run studded snows in the winter but there is no replacement for chains in the spring and fall. Just switched to toyo MTs and they are great but once they get worn down and or I'm towing in the mountains, let's put it this way, never will...

Re: Gears, gears, gears

I live in Alexandria/Pineville area, its right in the middle of the state. The few shops around here that allegedly do gears don't want to mess with them, the dealership here won't even do them : ( I know the feeling. Same thing happened to me. Trust your gut if you find someone who agrees to do it...

Re: 37 in spare

Yes. Case in point, note the scrape: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170830/aba4e1b77df9995dc5d4f06a5c83b89b.jpg Add a rear winch plate and something that is not too awfully angular and I'm very interested. Lots of room if spare is not there I think for a winch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

37 in spare

I'm working on a production level solution for guys running a 37" spare. I will probably have something out by end of October, give or take a month. The solution will keep the tailgate intact and in part will be a full bumper replacement. Cool. Hope your thinking of removing the quarter panels behi...

Re: 37 in spare

Here it is: "Despite being “open” when unlocked, ARB advises against using a smaller spare, as it could accelerate shim wear or potentially weld the cross-shaft to the gears. When possible it is best to lock the axle or put the smaller spare on the axle with no Air Locker, if you have one." http://w...

This is also handy for backing up my trailer into my steep drive way. Love it. Bought all the gear to make my own and this came out the week I bought all the crap. Much cleaner and also easily wired to the switch of your choice (going to my switch pros), see the updated install manual on their websi...

Toyo MT 37x 12.5(D) vs 13.5(E)

Agreed. Tall and skinny is where it is at. FWIW I have no qualms towing my 8000lb trailer with the RTs. 3-4 times per month, 150miles per trip, at right angles to the prevailing wind. Went RT for fear of squirm of MT but I'm going MT soon. After ~30k ish on the RT the tread is getting low for mud co...

Re: Toyo MT 37x 12.5(D) vs 13.5(E)

quite a bit taller or optical illusion? Toyo says they are taller?...not just wider...substantially heaver too. I've read that they actually measure 14.5" wide and true 37" or just under, compared to the 37x12.5 measuring 36.5" and 12.5". Did you measure the width with a tape measure once mounted by...

Re: Why has AEV turned to such shit?

Improved approach angle against something else with a winch on a cummins truck not a stock wagon. If your going to stuff a winch in front of a diesel ram truck it has to be as short as possible. Any additional length reduces the approach angle. Height plays in also but my point is that the bumper i...
