I have the two dolly tires (10 inch wheels) set to alarm if pressure drops below 75, or the temperature goes above 170.

The two rear tires on the toad (16 inch wheels) are set to alarm if pressure drops below 28, or the temperature goes above 150.

this is the set I use, Tire Minder 10 wheel because my truck is a dooly it works great. I allows you to set parameters per tire and is good about giving warnings. the only problem is you need to mark which one goes to which tire. when I went to get a couple tires changed last time the tire guy put them back on in reverse. lesson learned, I mapped and labeled each tire and marked each sensor appropriately. overall I like the set. I got mine at camping world.

Dooly or Dually, that is the question

A new dual rear wheel option called "Big Dooley" was introduced on one-ton pickups, along with a new Crew Cab option on the 164.5 in (4,178 mm) wheelbase. An optional Elimipitch camper was made available for the Big Dooley.[26] Crew Cabs were available in two versions: a "3+3" which seated up to six occupants and "bonus cab" which deleted the rear seat and added rear lockable storage in its place


The Rounded-Line generation ultimately ran for a lengthy 15 model years (19731987) with the exception of the Crew Cab (four-door cab), Blazer, Jimmy, and Suburban versions, which continued up until the 1991 model year. GM ends this generation with 1987 as 1987 was the last model year for the conventional cabs (two-door cab)."

So as you can see "Dooley or Big Dooley" are correct in this case.

In the 1970s but not today. The proper term is dually. As in dual tires. Not dool tires.

you might be partially right, not today. this history however DOES apply to my 1981 GMC 3500 Sierra Classic Camper Special DOOLEY. AND IT IS A SPECIAL TERM TO REFER TO THE TRUCK.


PLEASE FOLLOW THE FORUM RULES.
prior to answering this or trying to correct this please research the FACTS. I am sure you will learn that in this case MY TRUCK iS CALLED THE "BIG DOOLEY"

Dooley... Google returns 15,300,000+ results with the first 100 referencing nothing about tires or wheels or trucks.

Dually... Google returns 8,000,000+ results with the first 100 referencing nothing about also meaning dooley.


Wait... I think I hear someone singing...

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley... (or insert Dually)
Hang down your head and cry...
I've got me a big ol' pick-up
with 4 rear tires that are stiff 10 ply.

I AM NOT HERE TO ARGUE WITH ANYONE. I know what I own and the history behind it. I do not have to prove anything to anyone. If you are so determined to argue, argue with history, NOT ME.

try googling "1981 3500 Sierra Classic Camper Special Dooley history" see what you find. shoot it took me less than a minute to find it on Wikipedia, must not be to knowledgeable if you haven't found it yet. I tried to help you, now you are on your own.

The site team is hoping we don't have to close a good thread because of a couple of
...
members arguing over 'dooley' vs. 'dually'.
