Yes. You slowed down to 30 mph and just flipped a switch. They are common on ambulances and fire trucks. Another downside to that truck was that I always got pulled into scales cause they just wanted to check out the truck. They are meant for horse people who tend to have money!

Thanks. Took it to Ocean Lakes a few weeks ago. It was great. Just gonna do some Falls Lake and other local stuff for a little while. Doesn't matter where, just want to get out camping.

Our fire trucks have them. Not nearly as good as regular snow chains but if you get caught out there and snow comes along, they're great to have available.

I do love that my wife drives. I was able to work for a bit on our drive here (this was from last week):

Ependydad, you don't have an auxiliary fuel tank? I'd hate to be at the mercy of a high price fuel stop. The 90 gal tank/tool box was one of the best investments I made.
Or did you go Titan?

Nope, I use that space for the roll top cover box, a bike, 2 scooters, a grill for the fire, and one end of the screen porch.

I did think about the Titan fuel tank replacement. I think they have something like a 60-gallon one for my truck.

But, I've honestly never stressed fuel prices that much. Right now, I'm uber happy that prices are $2-something instead of $4 like when I started.

The part that use to bother me was filling up back then @ 4.30 a gal then 20 miles down the road see it for 3.70. Do that a few times and it adds up.
If you don't already, check out GasBuddy app. My copilot will search for the best fuel stops while enroute. Every bit helps.




Here's a couple pics. Went on another ferry ride while enroute to Myrtle Beach. This time they had us in the center, in away from seaspray.
