i am having a hard time with my truck on wet roads not to mension slick roads in the winter. i have a hard time taking off on wet roads and when turning on take off its almost imposible to keep my truck from going sideways. i just had my second encounter of getting sideways on a 2 lane country road in a curve with another car coming head on. very very close call i was not going fast at all i slowed down to 35mph being cautious because it has happened before. i am to the point where i need to figure something out to help it or im getting rid of it. its a regular cab long bed. i have filled the bed up with wood for extra weight before and it did help.
I was told to get traction bars, that they make a huge difference, personally i just dont see it. i think it might help a little on take off but not on curves. anybody else have regular cab long bed with this problem? any fixes?
Traction bars will not help you with traction on slick surfaces like you mention. They are for hard acceleration where wheel hop is present. My best advice is get skinny ssipedd and siped tires, put it in 4x and be easy on the skinny pedal.

305/70/16 they are adventuro brand radial GT's i got the set of 4 brand new for $650. they are not the smothest riding tire but they were well worth the money and have lasted a long time i recomend them if you do any off roading or farm work. but maybe not on a regular cab SRW
Tires arent going to help too much in my opinion, just have to take it easy and ease the throttle. I have the same issue when the roads are just slightly damp.....heavy, powerful engine up front and not much weight in the rear. My Dmax buddy also has this issue and we both have new tires.
