I was just curious if you had any supplemental system to help starting in cold weather. Anything like starting fluid system or hydronic heater?
Now you've got me wondering! I'll have to go check it out and see if I have that (tons of switches on this thing). It might also entail reading the owners manual, and we all know how rewarding that is.They do make a cold weather kit which I believe includes an PCV heater among other things. There would be a switch on the dash if you had it.
Interesting, I haven't heard about that. I do know that there are some mods for colder weather, such as heaters to keep the DEF fluid enough.They do make a cold weather kit which I believe includes an PCV heater among other things. There would be a switch on the dash if you had it.
I'm kind of leaning towards just leaving well enough alone.... We've put 10K miles on this rig in six months and have camped in some really cool places. I'm not sure that I need it to be much more capable. I do worry about the difficulty of currently changing a flat with duals vs singles. I'm also only running 235 85 16s and the moment and can't help but want to fill those wheel wells a little LOL.The traction might not necessarily be better, much depends on what you get for rubber, but airing down always helps with any tread design. A couple of big advantages are lessened drag through soft terrain - mud, sand and the like. This'll only happen though, if you run the wheels with the same track width. Second big deal is rocks that get pinned between the duals, tearing sidewalls.
Yep, they're expensive. The tires aren't cheap either, and then you get to research load ratings. Fun fun fun.
The Toyo M608Z's seem to work fine, at least I've had no issues with them. Pricey package though, that's for sure.
It's not so much about traction as it is about off-highway handling.We did a few week trip to Idaho with the paddleboards, mtn bikes and BEER! Beautiful area.
Super single wheels.... It's about time to change tires, so this might be the time to do the wheels but I'm getting quotes of $550 per wheel... DAMN. I'm also wondering if the spare will fit in the compartment made for it in the back of our camper. Is the traction really that much better? Definitely looks cooler LOL.

That's a very good looking and capable truck and camper there. It looks like there isn't any rear recovery points.
