That's what I'm suspecting as well. It would explain why I had no problems last year in NJ, but now these tires have a lot more miles on them. I couldn't give you a brand or anything off the top of my head. They came with the truck and I don't know how many miles the PO put on them. But I put 22,000 on them, didn't think it'd be an issue since they still had a good amount of tread on them. Most people around here run studded snow tires through the winter. I had considered it recently but just didn't have the money.

hit up the wrecking yards on friday in search of front recovery hooks and brackets. 5 yards later and i came back empty handed

met up with a local club on saturday for a cruise. had a great time, found out the limited slip i rebuilt in the D35 is still worthless. gonna see about a lunch box locker for the front. also need to either make or buy some sway bar discos, unbolting them is getting old.

today washed off the mud from yesterdays cruise

that is all

With the first spin out I was gradually losing control and tried to correct it with steering. I at least probably should have shoved it in to 4WD PT and tried to get control back but I didn't act quick enough, the first time I had time to think and act (the 2nd time happened in an instant). Yes for both incidents I was reluctantly in 2WD, the roads were mostly clear and I didn't want to strain my T-case by keeping it in part time.
If it's cold and wet you might as well be in 4wd FT. Im in FT even after it rains.(traffic circles are slick in the rain!) Its too easy to get slipping around with all your power going to the rear.

I never got into using the app. I just use my browser on my phone. I don't know what's accessible and what's not from the app.

The app makes reading and posting easier, but pretty much everything else through the app is a pain in the *** or inaccessible.

Got all the rear track bar bolts tightened up again. Can't seem to keep the bolts on the drop bracket tight. Wanna just put an adjustable rear track bar like I did up front. Popped on a piece of front plastic trim that popped out of the other piece. Found more rust.
