Ya I hear ye on that. I drive a ford heavy half sitting on 35s in the winter. The push bumper is nasty to say the least. The truck has a 351 super mod pushing 675 horse backed by a CAT 8 speed trans w matching front differential, rear differentials, and transfer case. Its frame lifted 3". So I'm not worried bout it. My driveway will meet this

It never fails, every year, first big snow, I'm pulling people out of snow banks. There are a lot of people who can't drive in the snow...

A couple of days ago Wife and I were talking with some neighbors down the road a ways, and the subject of snow came up. The guy looks at our F-150 and comments that it might have some trouble on the hills, being as it's 2wd. I smiled and said our other car's a Subaru, the truck stays parked in really bad weather. He laughed and said we'd be fine, then. He had a Subie in his driveway too.

That's why my truck had to have 4WD. Leaving it sitting in the driveway wasn't an option, and I hate chains...

If we ever get another truck, it'll be 4-wheel drive.

When it snows around here (which is rarely) I just stay home. its not because I don't like driving in the snow (I rather enjoy it) its because all of the other dickheads out there who can't for the life of them drive, let alone in the snow.
