    These guys have chains for larger tires. I got a set from them and they've worked great. Need to get a bigger set since I just went from 33" to 35" tires.

    My two cents...

    The powertank is super convenient, but bulky. There are many smaller options for airing up.

    Kids are in the back seat, and their legs are short. Put stuff on the floor, the...

    Trail Spares - TRE's?

    Quick question before I throw out the worn TRE's I just replaced on my FJ60...any reason to keep them as trail spares? It doesn't seem like they break that often, especially in mild/moderate use.

    I have a 60.

    Milage is very dependant on speed and what (if any) extra crap you add/do to the truck. Lifts, bigger tires, roof racks, all take a hit on the fuel milage.

    The relationship is described by this forumla:
    Watts = Volts * Amps

    So, for a 12V item, drawing 10 amps, you'll need 120 Watts of power.
