Was the 3rd gen AC engineered to be the first wind surfing truck?

    I love my 2021 sx 4x4 v6. Not only does it handle extremely well in snow season but it takes on a multi-purpose roll as a wind surfing truck. I'm amazed by the engineers everyday.


    I've owned both a 2018 sr5 dc & now the access cab sx. I get blown over the road much worse in the access cab. I put 250 pounds in the bed but I still get a lot of push over, might try more weight. 245 firestones.

    Would installing Kings solve this problem? I don't give a shit about their price, I just like them because they're shiny.

    defiantly get kings for they shine-shine factor and it will reduce side profile by 50% by raising your truck, thus helping with your windsurfing e-shoes

    All my 50k miles is highway. I want to put on the kings and tune for them for street use. The stock hitachi's sway like a stripper with scoliosis in the wind.

    Welcome to the forum :hattip:

    Watch the BST section or Craigslist, you can usually pick up low mile take off Sport shocks, that will firm things up for cheap.

    Pretty good wind surfing here in Maui county.

    Lately I've been having fun riding this 5'10" squash tail twin fin.

    Cars used to have fins behind the rear axle supposedly to help with crosswind. Fins, you need fins.
