After two years struggling with the double row chains for the duals on the GMC, I threw in the towel a week a go and ordered a set of single chains from “Tirechains.com”. They were on my doorstep 3 days later! The inside wheels were removed, and the chains installed on the outer tires with no muss, no fuss, no hassle. I could, if I had to, just lay them out on the ground ahead of the tire, drive on them and hook them up without even having to jack the truck off the ground. In addition, I think the truck will do much better, traction wise, without both tires on.

As an added bonus, I found the inside tire on the right side was almost flat, after I checked them just a couple of weeks ago. That wouldn’t have been good either.

Had the Diamond T out this morning for a December cruise as well. I went to breakfast, then picked up my new glasses, and went to Tractor Supply to get a new Reese hitch insert and 2″ ball. This will ensure that I will now immediately find the missing one from the wagon.

Hopefully, we’ll have more days I can drive the Diamond T, and not have to use that GMC to plow!
