By the way - how does one "practice" surgery??

Lol, in the medical world, in Canada at least, Doctors will call their business a "Practice", I guess every case is also practice...not like anyone can die or anything!

I was also pretty surprised at the SRW numbers for payload. I was shopping for a Dually until one of the dealers showed me the yellow sticker in one of their trucks! Being a daily driver, SRW will be easier too, and I hear, never experienced it myself, but apparently Dually's are a little iffy in snow?

Nice ride CSTOVER, They had the same one at the dealer but in a 2500 version, I am planning on adding projector lights and a new set of wheels to mine!

For those towing a similar 5er as mine, what brake settings are you using? How much gain?

Nice truck Sebber!!
Yep dual wheels are always more "fun" in slick traction conditions. I can drive my 2 ton over sand and soft ground all day, even with a load, but get a 1/4" of mud and I'm spinning like crazy. Heck I think if you spit on wet grass it would spin the tires (not really).
But more surface area is going to lessen the psi applied to the surface area regardless if it is 1 wide wheel or 2 skinnier wheels, so hydroplaneing or wet traction will aways be more of an issue than one skinnier tire. Fwiw

Have fun with it!!!
