    Mud spades sound like a good thing to have.

    I was going to weld up a pair of Scotch Blocks. It is an old tow truck trick. Google them, they work. I winched 30000lbs with my 5500lb pickup truck and my truck didn't move an inch with the scotch blocks taking the load.

    I'm not saying let's eliminate all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

    Scotch blocks= wheel chocks, got it. Never heard that term. You'll need a pair of them for parking the truck. Parking brake works well when properly adjusted. Can't trust other people, chock it when parked.

    Wider tire choices are very limited with the 936s given that raising the bed isn't really an option. 395s are wider than 1400s. You also loose load carrying capacity with singles over the dual 1100s. You can go to a 385 65 22.5 up front for having a wider steer tire. however finding many of them in an aggressive tread is hard to come by.

    the 936 is still fairly heavy with all the BII so even a tire swap won't help much on anything remotely soft. It will go down. They put a front winch on all of them for a reason.
