Default Hello Everyone!

I'm now the proud owner of a 2006 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 and figured this site would be a perfect place to find inspiration for modifications I want to make.

I live in Indiana, and after a snow/ice-filled winter in my RWD Mustang I decided it was time to get a 4x4 truck. I happened to come across this little gem that I now own (pics soon to come) which only has 20k miles on it!

I suppose my first question is, does anyone know of some modifications I could make to get around in inclement weather besides buying better tires? I don't know that there is much else one can do to a 4WD truck to improve its snow performance.

Anyways, it's nice to have joined this site, I hope to hear from you all soon!

-SpartanC

Welcome to FRF

Better tires would be BFgoodrich A/t's I have them and they are awesome in the snow.

I am getting new tires here shortly and going with Cooper S/T Maxx suppose to be good in snow

The first step to admitting you have a problem is being here at FRF. The second step is buying those BF Goodrich A/T, they are the Ranger tire IMHO.
