For those that are confused

http://www.accusump.com/acc_products/acc_units.html

I like the idea but it adds to the list of things that can go wrong. I don't think I would use it every time I start but maybe when it's cold out or the truck has been sitting. And it would help if you were hitting real sever angles off road. Yousef and John T should consider one of these, I have heard both of their engines running and starved for oil.

If you want the extra shot for startup, I would say go for it, but if you have a dedicated wheeling rig, I would get a dry sump setup instead as the accumulator only has a limited supply.
