    As most know it has been raining in Alabama for this whole week. I was coming home from a friends house and i stopped at a red light and when it went green I started to accelerate... I noticed that I was not going the usual speed (felt awkward) I heard squealing from the tires..



    Anyway, Whats the most cheapest way to make it to where theres a little bit more weight in the back?

    Rocks?
    Marbles?
    Wood?

    You can buy bags of sand at Home Depot and some Walmarts. I used to have a 2wd Dodge Cummins... total POC until I piled 1,000 lbs of sand bags in the back.... prior to that I would get stuck with an inch of snow on the ground on flat ground.

    My dad had one of the old square style Toyota Vans... it seemed to handle good and have decent traction. One day when were cleaning it we pulled the carpets up and the original owner installed 1/2" plate steel on the floor in the back the re-installed the carpets and seats.... the plate steel gave it absolutely perfect weght distribution and was probably 300 lbs or so.

    In that case hope you don't encounter any fat chicks that can run fast.

    Whatever the recommended tire pressure is for Toyo OP AT. I cant remember at the moment.


    but its somewhere between 35-42 PSI (i think)

    you should probably go check that

    under or over inflated tires can cause a loss of traction...as can driving an MT/AT tire on pavement

    Lents said he wants the "most cheapest" way to gain traction. And since we can assume any chick fat enough to give Lents the traction he needs will have a bologna sammich in her purse already, he won't even need to splurge and buy any food.

    Hot chicks could work, but I see that getting expensive. He'd have to lay out bait in the back of his truck; be it designer purses, or Natty Ice...those all cost money.

    Maybe he could hold a bingo in the back of his truck.... lottsa chicks, and think of the bingo proceeds. Then he could buy some hot chicks.

    You really want to drive while hauling around hot chicks? I figured you'd wanna be in the back with them. :shrug:


    ....well....then I guess that's a way hot chicks could improve your traction. With the truck going nowhere, you'd have 100% traction.
