    If your digital thermostat came with a decent manual, see if you can change the swing temp. I know I was able to change it on mine... Sometimes it's as easy as telling it you're using hot water...

    White is good, but I would look for something that goes on smooth. If the bedliner has grip stuff in it, I'd find something else. If not, then it might work fine! Seriously, check out the garage...

    Comparing E 235/85's to C 31x10.50's (I've never seen a D 31x10.50) is like comparing apples to oranges, and it has less to do with the load range than the size. If you have lots of HP, then a wider...

    You are correct. The other advantage is that the alum hawse is lighter. Generally a LOT lighter! That adds to the weight savings that the synthetic line affords. I'm not saying nobody should run...

    I'm with the Rewster. But then again I only have a rear locker. (Front Truetrac) I have yet to find a situation where I would have wanted the front locked, and the rear unlocked, but I'm not rock...

    I don't know where the edict that "you must use a hawse fairlead" first came from, but I am certain it was for marketing purposes, not for any engineering reason.

    I forget where I read it, but...

    Ok, from our last camping trip, where no fires were allowed, it was obvious that we needed another way to kill some time. We have been using my laptop for downloading or looking at pictures, and...

    Sunday we rode John's Canyon Rd. It was all dirt, and I think we followed it for about 17 miles. Ended up back where the going gets a little technical and a lot of ADV'ers turn back, and decided...

    I had my '93 hallmark wired to charge when the truck was running, and it was never very good at keeping the battery happy. Mostly because the truck doesn't run much when I'm out camping, and if I...

    Yeah, the OE's like to make you lock the front as a "last resort" as the front axle is generally the weaker of the two. Used wisely, there are times when you need to lock the front to get up or over...

    It's not quite the same sand or loading, but I've run 13 in a mostly empty GMC 2500 out at Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Michigan with no issues, and I flogged it pretty hardgood. With as much weight...

    Well, I haven't put a lot of miles on the AT2's, but enough to still like them!! I was planning to swap them onto a Comanche project, and pick up a new set of 255/85 STMaxx's, but moving put a hold...

    Are you sure you're getting ST MAXX in 265/75R16?? Everything I can find says that's a $200+ tire... The AT3 in load range C is $160/tire... If they let you have ST Maxx for that price, you got...
