    Amazon delivered my bed mat and Tyger hitch step this weekend. Love them both.

    Wouldn't the sand be most effective all the way against the tailgate? That would create the largest moment against the rear axle.

    I thought it might cause fishtailing if I put them there and braked hard. But I could easily move it to there and try it out

    Weight for traction is best applied ahead of the rear axle. Weight applied behind the rear axle takes weight off of the front wheels which lessens their traction.

    This image from popular Science is a prime example why the earth is so F****D up. Lets just put everything in a hole and it will disappear...or better yet, dump it in the ocean, only the fish will notice.
    I can only hope that Taco owners are more respectful to the earth than that image.

    @Theclclass ... I’m confused, did you mean to type something here?

    edit: Nevermind, I didn’t see what you wrote because you didn’t have it in bold

    Not what I did, but what I should have done! I should have driven my Tacoma to the deer lease instead of my new land barge. I wanted to take a trip in the new truck, arrived to a huge thunderstorm with hail and about 3” of rain. I’ll never get this thing as clean as it was Friday morning....

    I like that! And as my kids pointed out- a seat for ice cream- 6 year old tailgating at its finest!

    Some were good enough to position the oil pan drain plug over the hole (no need for a catch tub). Sure, it would contaminate ground water, but nobody knew that then.
    Shoot, in South East Asia, you could hire a guy pushing a 55 gal drum (on a wheeled cart) to oil the dirt road in front of your hootch so as to keep the dust down. There were drums of water as well, but that didn't last as long as the oil would in that jungle heat.
    So, someone worried about 6 qts of oil in a hole; will have a heart attack considering all of those 55 gals drums of it poured over many, many kilometers of dirt paths & roads! And done for decades.
    So sad. If only we knew then what we know now...
