    A little weight in the bed during the snow season will be your friend! Definitely will help with traction.

    I live on the coast of NC, rust and corrision are a huge problem. Bolts constantly seize up. I have used anti-sieze on some things, but the best thing I've used is automotive assembly grease, get it at NAPA. Never dilutes, bolts and machine screws come out easily.

    Just curious, if you don't mind, how much were the power steps? How was the install? Beautiful truck, looks really good!

    Looks very nice! I like the look of the black vinyl on the hoods, especially those with the hood scoops!

    5 x 60 lb sand bags resolves that issue.

    Little Annie runs smooth as a Cadillac with the sand bags back there. No traction issues, no jostling/bouncing. It does handle very differently with the added weight.

    I use it religiously cops and traffic. It helps you avoid both. :thumbsup:

    When you’re trying to add weight to the rear axle, your bed weight should be at the rear by the tailgate. It’s like a fulcrum, adding weight in the center of a teeter totter does next to nothing compared to adding it to one side
    Edit: or rather, adding the weight farther from the axle increases desired effects. Traction with less weight

    This is bad advice apparently

    Installed Taco Garage’s DMM today. Took about 20 minutes and I now have a proper place for my phone. The mighty magnet is legit.

    Quite a bit cleaner looking than the BulletPoint mount.

    Yeah it’s definitely the most low profile one. I looked at them all and this one fit the bill. It’s super solid and like I said about the magnet, your phone isn’t going anywhere.

    The only weight I have is my Diamondback cover and I have no issues. Plus the snow on top is an added bonus:thumbsup:

    Airing down helps a ton with that jittery washboard bounce.

    Just pointing out that there are wee filler plugs for those empty screw holes. Makes the mount look yet even cleaner.
    I got mine from ACE hardware and do not have the part number readily available. I will search and post if I find it. The plugs look like "t-caps".
    Maybe someone will post them also...
