The difference is huge in my experience.



My chains are actually twist link single truck (big rig) chains that I modified heavily to fit. I work on the big trucks for bread and butter, and scored a few new "orphan" chains from the scrap bin one spring. Since the price was right, I spent the time to remove a couple links from each crosslink and cut them down as needed. They're pretty easy to put on and tighten since they have cam tensioners, and are quite a bit heavier duty than what is commercially available for pickups. Unfortunately, this info probably won't be of much use to you, so I'll have to recommend your local tire shop or chain supplier.
Thanks for the reply! I will have to do a bit of research on the commercial offerings!

One of my winter projects is to build one of those, my M8000 has been sitting lonely for far too long. I'm going to build it with two shackle D rings too.

Happy New Year to all!

Cold up there Splicer? We got snow a week ago and it's still here...even in the trees and stuck to the power lines. The warmest we've gotten since then is 33 degrees. Just spent some time using a 6 foot pry bar to chip up chunks of ice off the driveway. I had to use it and a rubber mallet to break the chunks off the firewood pile tarps so I could restock the firewood rack on the deck. I hate it when it stays frozen like this. Low 20s every night.

Chalkie, how are the temps in CO?

Ice fishin?

There's at least one lake we drive by sometimes in the winter where people do ice fish. They're nuts...especially when they have to dig down thru 6 feet of snow just to get to the ice!

Been cold. 13 this morning, yesterday never got above 22. Supposed to drop down to single digits tonight and then warm up to highs in the 40's for a few days.

I agree!! I have been ice fishing 3 times. While I like fresh trout a lot, it is just not worth dressing up so you look like the Michelin man, hauling a sled loaded with stuff while wearing snow shoes or ice cleats, freezing any slightly exposed portion of anatomy... all for the chance of 3 or 4 fish!

Threw the coat and gloves on and washed the HL yesterday and the Taco today. Got all the salt and sand off of both. Never seen them use so much salt! Finally are getting above freezing lately after 3 weeks of constant below freezing temps. The 7 inches of snow from Dec 26 is finally melting (though there's still ice on our driveway and the roads in spots). Forgot what a white truck looked like.

Washed my truck today too. Actually, I went to the touchless car wash. Drove straight home and dried it off.

I think our cold temps are heading your way from what I saw on the news tonight.
