Use it often! Agree totally! Do all this just to handle the most minimal incline. Even main highways during active storms. Only takes a half an inch of snow and these worthless limited slip rear ends don't cut it. The average p700 weighs 8 tons empty. Probably 6 1/2 tons of that are from the cab forward. Gotta add the weight or stay home. And since they won't let me stay home....That, my friend, is some serious dedication. Once upon a time, I would have done the same.
However, I later learned that ECD was my best friend in bad (snowy and icy) conditions.
