    Ok so you threw iron on all 4 corners. That's an every day thing hauling logs or most off road driving. Sometimes you double chain a tire when it gets real deep. Just like my line of super trucker bs. Lol

    Just had this thread pop back up. There are different restrictions and requirements for tanker and car haulers. A lot of tankers also have sanders installed or auto-chains, so what appears to you as them running barefoot, they might have something else going on.

    As I'm getting older, decrepit, and tired of freezing my fingers and toes, I've begged my boss for auto-chains, he's randomly suggested I could switch back to one of the city trucks and be a flat-land/local driver, of course I'll lose some pay in the process from not getting the high paying loads. In the end, I decided fingers and toes will eventually grow back, and I'll suck it up.

    I tried using WD 40 on my chains, but the wife complained it was staining the bedding, now we just get new ones every few months

    After reading this whole thread and not seeing one mention of Inga I deduced that she was hired in the previous 12 months

    .....I just want to say, bungees are stupid and you should only be throwing triples.
