I wish the 93’s were the same, everyone that sets foot in mine mentions it, gets old after awhile.

These trucks make enough power for traction to become a problem? News to me!

I have traction problems frequently. Especially in rain but I'm also not a 4cyl. I've never driven on so I have no idea.

Why not put some sandbags in the bed? You can use a couple of 2x6s to built a frame that will keep them centered over the rear axle.

In the rain is the only time traction becomes a problem, but it is very easy to bog if you aren’t careful.

Me?



I run 5-6 of the 70lb bags in the winter if I'll be in the snow regularly. Doesn't really make any difference. I just drive much softer if I think there is a chance of wheel spin.

Hopefully this 2 step idea is for legit runs down the drag strip and not just to blow flames at local shitshow meets.
