    Long drive tomorrow

    I hate chaining up. the wife chain are a lot easier than the trucker style on the Dodge. No sure I could run chain on the front wheels as the tires already rub. If i move the front wheel forward will that stop the rub on the lower control arm. it not bad, it the Mud terrain side wall lugs. no wear marks, just some missing paint.

    Using antifreeze?

    I smell more outside of the truck than inside. and strongest on drivers size, I check for stains.
  11. I smell antifreeze for several year in the cab. I was pretty sure that the heat control valve, as the only time I could smell it, and pint a year maybe. Now I smelling when getting out side of the driver's side getting out, other tell they can smell it when i can't. Looked around this morning, I did not see any leaks, those I add a gallon of antifreeze recently. How do tell if the head gasket is blown.?
