Ok, I'm caught up to speed now.........thanks. ;)
I've you could see my "summer tires" that I ran through the winter in order to get the last little bit of good out of them before I free up one set of rims, you'd know that I fully appreciate what you were doing with your tires. I'll then do the same thing for the next couple years with my BFG Muds before switching to Toyo MT's for year-round use. At this point I run a larger risk of the tires just getting old before I can wear them out. Light little Toyotas are easy on tires.
In an attempt to get this thread back on track with emergency gear while simultaneously talking about tires, I'll give a quick plug for a great little air compressor I bought for my work truck and have already used extensively while my employer was busy trying NOT to buy me Toyos.
I've aired up several 33" truck tires with mine (rock damage), and it's been a strong performer. It connects directly to the vehicle's battery so there's no risk of burning out a fuze panel, and this also allows for a stronger motor than the normal cigarette lighter pumps. The length of the electrical leads and air hose are enough to reach all four corners of a truck. Not exactly cheap, but you usually get what you pay for, and I've been very happy with my sample of one.
