Check your tire pressure as often as possible....!!!!
Rotate the tires often... keeps the tire wear more even.
Check the balance often... check the shocks often.
An old timer years ago, told me to set the front tires 5+psi higher than the rear tires due to frontend weight being heavier than it is at the rear of the vehicle. He told me it will help pull the (4x4) truck thru the snow and ice better. I tried it years ago, he was right... it does make a difference. He said it helps keep all the tires at the same height by adding more air to the heavier front end so it equals out the whole vehicle tire height a little better. Ok, let the bashing begin... i`m sure SOMEBODY will come in here and say its bullsh!t. But before you disagree, maybe you should wait it out and try it for yourself. To many people dont pay attention to their tires & pressures, and when they wear down their tires, or one is low on air, (due to neglect) it will cause the tires that are taller to fight amoungst the ones that are lower in height (due to wear and or tire pressures not being equal on all 4 corners of the vehicle) By neglecting the tires, the 4x4 componets WILL surely fail sooner, that is without a single dought.
End of rant...lol
