A tough winter as we have about 30 inches more or less on the ground plus another 4 to 8 today .
That snowblower paid for itself ....

My truck is great as i used 4 Wheel last storm ....
4 High and I go thru a lot of stuff . 4 Low I haven't used yet but last summer we took it out in the sand and I got stuck a couple of times and 4 Low worked great ...
Not the kind of tires ( stock wranglers ) for that sort of stuff . But still , real happy wiht the truck !

Yea I love playing in the snow with the truck, mines 4x4 too, I have goodyear wrangler rt/s on it right now but I'm thinking of getting wrangler authorities. I haven't been stuck yet though with the tires I have now though.

Not sure I'm familiar with the authorities , I will look into those , but I need a little bit more aggressive tread for both offroad and highway .

Any experience with those ? I have been a Toyo and Wrangler fan ...

This is the first time I've ever even thought of buying new tires so I don't have any experience with anything other than my rt/s. I only got interested in them after I saw them at walmart, I think around $150 for the ones I want. I think the authorities are the walmart exclusive version of the duratrecs


01DangerRanger has them though and he likes them

Thx Clinton . I do like it a lot . I have a couple of elderly neighbors so I do their walks as well as my own . My wife helps out too . Now we hear more significant Snow on Tuesday .. Egads LOL ! I love driving in it as I have about 16, 500 miles on it now as I use it every day and on our vacas . Very comfortable truck .

I hear you ER95 about the airbags as I was surprised when I found them in there when we looked at the truck ... This thing has a lot of technical and electronic stuff like traction control , electronic 4 wheel , abs , 4 disk brakes , anti roll over as well .

Finding out some stuff in the snow as the traction control comes on when you spin the wheels . Anti roll over is interesting coming off a highway exit and goin a little fast as it slows the whole truck down when you turn the wheel aggressively . Kinda like a Gyro or something in it ....
