Well update:

Threw a new radiator cap from the parts store on it. And did the same type of condition that it was puking before. And this time around no puking , no coolant smell, and no coolant on the degas bottle. Maybe it was just a little overfilled and the cap was bad ? I need to get a pressure gauge on it soon

Just went driving in the snow for the first time with this truck. It was only 3 inches. I must say, this truck is fun. Those Nitto Ridge Grapplers worked very well in the snow and slush.

Nope. If you know how to drive, don't really need them. I have alot of experience driving in snow and ice. I lived in Denver for 10 years and went up skiing every weekend during the ski seasons.

No quick throttles, no hard braking (slow and steady), no quick jerks of steering wheel, leave plenty of room between you and the vehicle in front of you. Easy enough. Just patience.

/\/\/\ what he said



The only time I needed chains, is when I knew I shouldn't have been where I was. Deep off road on a cattle trail in about 3 ft. of snow.

I always keep good chains in my rear floorboard once snow flies. It is good common sense for someone as spontaneous as me. Just the same, my 10 year-old Pewag chains are new-never-been-used.

i may do that but i might just get a cheaper decent rear bumper and most of those dont come with room or mounting for a good winch.
honestly as much as i am likely to have to use it mounting a second winch on a reciever plate would likely be just fine plus if i ever wanted to use it with the ol suburban i could
none of this is likely to happen in the near future anyways so i got time to decide

And I'm gonna try a new radiator cap and see what happens on the drive home from waco maybe the cap is bad

i kinda want a snorkel but it would be absurd on this truck if it didnt rreally get colder air to the engine. obviously this will never be a deep water crossing truck

this really is the right way to do it ... period
i kinda figure with good studded snow tires and good 4x4 if i need chains to get there...it just aint worth it

my old house was at 8300 ft above the west shore of Tahoe we got more snow than pretty much anywhere on earth and there were numerous times i had to chain all fours to get out and back
in 83 we had our plow busted and 27feet on the road NO ONE was getting out. we had one guy with a good sno mo and he was making runs to town to get food for everybody.
plus when things were slow my old room mate and i would go put chains on for the tourists on donner summit for 20 bucks a pop we could easily knock out 4 or 5 an hour each even with people being stupid and slowing us down...
so it was pretty good money in the 80's

that said i did have a pretty hairy ride this morning after picking up the kid from work in town the road is just too much ice and i slide a semi controlled free skid to the bottom of my road
i managed to get up and get the truck in the driveway but i was unable to back it in so getting out tonight could be pretty scary
still hoping the plow is coming by today but...so far nothin we will need the grader to make a dent in the ice packed to our clay road base or its drive the berm and try to keep it from getting sideways on the way down the hill
