HI again Carl!
My Tahoe is? 4WD (Alldrive). Does that make a difference? Also, when I test towed the rig the dealer put on a 750 lb wd hitch/anti sway bar set up.? Would that be good?
I do know I'll have to get myself a tire iron or longer bar to tighten (term?) the chains.
Difference depends.? ?Offroad 4WDs have a stiff, high compliance suspension mounted on heavy sidewalled LT rated tires.? They sit high off the ground to gain road clearance (eg
the Bronco). All wheel drives (AWD) tend to have normal suspensions and road clearance.? ?Their purpose is to provide 4WD advantages in sloppy conditions? on pavement and good dirt roads.?
The clue to proper spring bar tension is the re-leveling of the tow vehicle.? ?If you cannot get that leveling with a 750-lb bar, or you are on the last link of the chains, you have move up to a 1000-lb bar.
Not tire iron.? Pipe.? But in any case it does not appear that would be useable with the Equalizer system.? ?Actually, most of the grunt and groan is obviated with the hitch jack.? That is why I keep harping on getting a powered one.
