    That is not my truck.
    I really just posted it as a WTF.

    Go to the Bring a Trailer site at the link I posted and view the listing and comments people made about it and the bidding/price.
    Vehicles sell for crazy money there. Browse the completed auctions.

    Wow, and I've been accused of having mental illness...

    Bizarre transactions without a doubt...

    Not familiar with that site, but the implication is a trailer needs to be brought because the vehicle is not drivable...

    Bring a Trailer started as a fan sourced daily listing of barn finds and oddities on Craigslist, eBay, and local listing sites. Users would find something neat, send it in with what they knew about it, and if it was cool enough, it would go out in a daily email blast to subscribers. They had a motorcycle related site called Throttle Yard too. Eventually, they moved into listings and auctions. That was the logical direction, as they already had a massively dedicated audience of restorers, collectors, and enthusiasts. It is a great business model.

    Bring a Trailer is easy to sell on. They manage their listings well. They demand A LOT of information about the vehicle from the seller. It was meant to be the opposite of eBay, where people have shitty listings, bad photos, and limited informtation. Bring a Trailer gets enough information to write a novel. They scrutinize photos, encourage as many as possible, and even help you learn what and how to photograph on a car. The result is clear listings that go straight to a targeted audience. That naturally drives prices higher.

    Missed how handy a truck could be so decided to go back to one. Picked up the GMC AT4 with the baby duramax this weekend.

    Looked for them, discontinued. Yeah, the best truck snow tire in the market and the boneheads said nyet? Winterforces are next on the list.

    Half ton with a small diesel was the best truck format I ever owned. I sold my 3.0 EcoDiesel Ram to an inmate before going to Russia and man do I miss that truck. Perfect combination of towing capacity and fuel economy. I think you're going to like your AT4.

    I looked hard at the Ram as well. It was a pretty close decision. It mostly came down to which dealer was giving the best deal with the options I wanted.

    Well That sucks! I had the mastercraft snow tire can't remember it's name but it was good, not as good as the cooper but I would put them on again. I like a more blocky snow tire than some of the others that seem to be more rounded, they just seem to give better traction. Good luck!

    I run Weathermaster WSC in Winter, the best AT winter rubber I could find here. The work surprisingly well on ice and snow, but really shine when it's just wet and cold. Even though they are soft, they have yet to throw knobbies - and my Hilux sees quite some abuse during the winter months.

    no disrespect, but winterforce studded tires are the worst winter tires my truck has seen to date. Nokian hakappolita LT2’s were pricy, but worth every penny as I’ve gotten Extra seasons out of them. I prefer studded tires for up here.
