    I'd just go with Nitrochargers. I haven't had a problem with them, I've seen some people have the 5100s leak on them. But for now just get one or the other until you dive into actual relocation and better shocks :notsure:

    That rating is specific to vehicle weight the tire can support, if you put E rated tires on it's just a bit stiffer ride (stronger side walls, etc)

    So C rated are "adequate" and will save you some MPG over E rated.

    We had probably 80ft of line out going to a tree up slope then daisy chained to 2 tow straps though. That jeep wasn't even hitting the gas at first, Brian had to tell him to gun it. So I'm not surprised your winch was struggling

    I really like mine. It's not the OR, as we "needed" the 3rd row, but it's much comfier than my '15 Taco. Tons of cargo room, I've hauled three hockey goalies and all of their gear in the back. Also fit an 80" bookshelf inside behind the front seats and was able to close the hatch. The main thing I don't like is the non-height adjustable passenger seat. I rode over there once and I don't fit well. Granted if there was no sunroof, all would be fine.

    Same. It looks to me like they are really running the Android Auto on one of the separate boxes and using the factory head unit as a interface

    Oh this would be way down the line if I did get it. I've been following people trying to figure out the Android Auto stuff for a while and this looked the most promising so far

    Please report back. I was in SF a couple weeks ago and rented a Dodge Charger R/T (BTW the noise that car puts out is amazing) and it had Car Play. Made me realize how much I want this.

    Went out to see if the trailer was accessible... When i parked it i didn't think about snow drifts. Snow is up to the tongue. Tried to break though at half speed. I should've known better.. Should've sent it.

    Free workout, then to find a neighbor that i can borrow a tractor from. No way I'll be able to shovel the trailer out by hand.

    Maybe a wheel attachment for front to replace the foot on the jack? So you could winch or tow it out?

    Well at least the truck is un-stuck after 30 min of shoveling. It was nice and framed out.

    There's shit (engine and bug) between the winch and the rear or i could do that to pull it backwards to the truck.might just bash back and forth to clear my way to it.

    Might save it for later though, wanted to go snowshoeing.
