Mickey Thompson Baja Boss A/T first look

Just received this set of Mickey Thompson Baja Boss A/T tires to evaluate.

The Sidebiters on the new Baja Boss A/T are the beefiest sidewall tread I’ve seen on an all-terrain, and appear as rugged as most modern mudders!

Much more about these in the weeks and months ahead.

BlueDEF Platinum

The idea behind BlueDEF Platinum’s additive package is to prevent harmful SCR system deposits and failures. Does it work, we shall see, I’ve not had any DEF problems with either of my trucks, however….
On a 2013 truck with a mere 71,000 miles, the owner of Truck Camper Adventure online magazine had a catastrophic SCR/DEF system failure on his fourth generation Ram/Cummins 3500 truck, with the dash warning that in 100 miles his speed would be limited to 5 mph!
The subsequent repair was $3,500! You can read his story and product introduction here:

Warn Hub Receiver

First look, pairing, setup, and use of the Warn Hub Receiver wireless winch remote.

Made for most Warn winches plus a vision for other brands.

The app was fast and intuitive on my iPhone 8, and displays battery voltage.

Warn has a great and detailed video here about all aspects of the Warn Hub receiver and app.

Fog lights under front bumper

Moving these super-compact, ultra-wide, All Terrain Projector (ATP) PIAA 1100p lights from the rear of the flatbed, to the bottom of the front bumper skid plate was a great modification.

Designed for the front of motorcycles with high vibration resistance and an SAE-F compliant beam, these lamps were not great when viewed through the mirrors or camper back door. 

Yet these little lamps provide impressively wide and distant illumination (for a fog pattern) when viewed through the windshield. The aggressive, precise line cut keeps the beam on the road, and not in the eyes of oncoming drivers (of course proper aiming is required). What a positive change moving them to the front! 

Though mounted below the bumper, they don’t hang low, and are behind the Buckstop bumper face and tow hooks. I think they’re unlikely to be hit or damaged from a typical dirt nosedive.

With the recent addition of two Hella floods on the back of the flatbed, this rig now has three pair of lamps on the front, and two on the back. Is that enough?
