    Both plows all nice and serviced...I love being ready.

    Got some new tread as well.

    bfg all terrain ko.

    I can already tell they don't have the traction in snow as the cooper discoverers do, but I'm sure this is a better quality tire as all my coopers tear up real quick.

    Trust me those BFG's will dig and dig in the snow they are great tires all around. I run them on every truck I've owned and I love them in the snow.

    I had those tires put on last october on my dodge 2500. They are almost shot already. I don't know why. 12K miles...They were awesome in the snow though, hardly needed 4x4. I hope they last longer for you.

    They are USDOT numbers and are posted up on both sides.

    They are legally required in the state of Colorado if your a registered business, with a Gross vehicle weight rating capacity or combined GVWR of over 10,001 pounds.

    Truck = 9k GVWR
    Trailer = 7K GVWR

    Puts me at 16K.

    Many states require this....along with safety triangles and fire extinguisher.

    Ohh okay. I think I am supposed to have a commercial license to legally haul my skid steer or dump trailer behind my trucks. Need to look into that..

    Truck looks good man.. I run Cooper Discoverer M+S snow tires on my trucks in winter. Great traction.

    How do we keep them from attending this conference? I don't want that crap on my truck..

    I met a guy who hauls freight with his 3500 drw dodge and gooseneck he had his DOT # printed on a sheet of paper and stock onto the inside of the rear cab windows. When he is empty he takes them off he said.

    Well key is to take them off as soon as the snow is done and it starts to warm up. I ran them too long into the spring about 2 years ago now the set for the GM are not as soft.

    I should get 3 or 4 years out of them. I didn't put the snows on the GM last year as I wasn't driving it myself and it was mainly doing driveways that truck.

    I put a set on the Dodge when I bought it last year so I'll let you know in 3 to 4 years. LOL.
