As you continue making truck modifications and changing the truck suspension, your off-road vehicle will begin to take on a different shape. While you tinker with your ride, you'll want to keep track of what you add to the machine and how that affects the vehicle's performance. One the easiest and most effective ways to do that is to monitor how the weight changes with the new additions, which is especially important if you plan on doing some heavy-duty work or off-roading with the truck.
Importance of monitoring weight
You're going to want to keep an eye on the weight of an off-road vehicle for several reasons. One of the most important is safety, as you'll likely be making alterations to a truck that require you to lift it for easier access. Any time the truck needs to be elevated, you'll need to know its weight so as to keep it within capacity limits.
Truck Weight recently introduced a new wireless sensor designed to track the weight of a truck without additional hassles. This system has been tested to provide accurate readings with a range of only 1 to 2 percent. Available for tandem spring, single point, camelback, walking beam and Chalmers suspension systems, this sensor could be an option for your next off-roading investment.
Advantages of a wireless system
This wireless system can do more than simply let you know what kind of tools you need. If you plan on doing heavy-duty work with a vehicle, the Truck Weight product can alert you when you're close to the limitations of a truck, allowing you to perform any work easily and safely. It also lets you track how much pressure you're putting on a lift kit or suspension, which contributes to the longevity of the gear.
Another benefit of the wireless system? The installation time is kept to one to two hours, compared to up to 12 hours for its counterparts. So not only is it easier on you to install, but it also frees up your time so you can get right to off-roading, instead of spending unnecessary hours in the garage.
Truck Weight claims that its new sensor is well suited for off-roading. With no wires to get tangled in obstacles or interfere with ground clearance, it is safe for use on different types of terrain and may even enable you to extend your off-road driving time.
