- The Tacoma's ploughing capabilities - what would be the relevant rating to consider when determining whether it can fit a given plough? Would a Tundra be preferable in lieu, and would it be worth the trouble to swap?
(mine is a 4x4 V6, no TRD...I have no clue what TRD does)
- Gravel - this can turn to dirt or mud, which would reduce traction. It may also interfere with the ploughing; I am not sure about this. This could be mitigated with the right tyres if I recall.
- Lift + larger tyres - from what I understand, that may help with the gravel+crap, but it may sap the truck's power because it is rotating heavier wheels at a lower RPM. What is the smallest tyre offering flotation on snow? 38"s seem a bit excessive; I am hoping to get away with something a bit smaller.
Thank you for your trouble in helping with this.
(My apologies if these specific matters were covered in another thread; I found other threads but none addressing gravel, and most offered conflicting opinions but little data)
