Now we live in North Georgia we may get some ice/snow to test them in this season.(I'll let you know when it happens) I'm 100% sold on the Michelin LT...

    Glow plug harness is toast!

    Thanks guys! I broke down and replaced mine. It was easy. FYI : the older 4 wire glow plug harness is not the same as the brm. Brm glow plugs are equally spaced and the older versions were not.
