so gotta question and maybe looking for some insight on this or drop some knowledge on me if you will :wink: so what i'd like to know is traction? whenever i'm at a light or intersection i have to basically roll foward slowly giving it gas gradually until i'm going. if i give it a bit too much gas off the line the wheels will spin and the slip light comes on. when i say a bit too much gas i mean i step on the gas normally like i do on dry conditions. sometimes when i'm bumping my system loud i don't realize i'm spinning my wheels until i notice the slip light blinking on and off which than i'll let off on the gas until it grabs. my question or questions is could it be a number of things like is being a LongBed causing this? with the rear wheels/axle so much further back away from the cab cause this? not enough weight in the bed? could the CJD Traction bars be a factor? or maybe the Bilstein shocks, PRG Deavers and 4" blocks come into play? i know throwing sand bags in the back will help but just wondering why i have to baby the gas pedal on wet surfaces without breaking traction so easily. maybe because the traction bars are eliminating the axle wrap it transferring the power to the tires quickly? i would think having these large 35" mud tires would help add weight? i dunno, like to get your guy's opinions.
