    Am I the only one who will try to get over a snow bank taller than his truck, until he gets hopelessly mired, having to crawl out the back? :rolleyes:

    Snow is cool!! There is no fun like snow fun. If you aren't bending sheet metal, breaking stuff, or getting stuck you are not wheelin'. The only bad thing about hitting snow banks is they break fog lights and freeze brake lines.

    The only problem I've ever had with blasting through snow banks is the steering linkage gets packed full of snow and I can't turn anymore! :doah: :D

    You are not the only one- We hit these actually where everyone else turns around like an airport runway- Jess

    I like the snow!

    It serves a dual purpose -- fun, and an underchassis washing after all the snow crammed into every crack of your truck melts in the shop later :D

    Love playing in the snow. Only downfall is getting stuck in it. Trying to get enough traction to tow a vehicle out in the woods that is covered in deep snow isnt much good. But snow is much easier on sheet metal except for the front doors.

    I just came back from Park City Mountain. It was 20-28 every day and snowing 2 out of 4 days we were there:D. Being from Florida and living in SOCAL it was a blast:D. Pics are on the Lapptop I will post up in the lounge with some of them.

    Here are some pics from last winter :D

    We got a HUGE snowfall last winter, near the end of March. The snow on the ground was already a good 2 feet deep, and we got another 2 feet on top of that :P

    I had plowed the driveway the night before :D That was fun stuff to drive in! Esspecially with a 2wd ext cab truck that has totally bald tires :P

    I actually wound up having to air them down to get moving in the deeper stuff, lol

    The picture of that cat is just to show how deep it was -- They had packed a trail down on the 2 foot stuff already, and this cat was standing up on her back legs to see outta their trench, lol

    Man I love the snow, the only time I can do a 4lo donut.:D I just got dumped on up here in Massachusets, about 18 inches on Sunday. I love it when the plows can't keep up, it just makes the roads so much more fun! I went wheeling with my buddy who took his jeep with my truck and if you want to play around in the snow you really need lockers front and rear. My buddy got stuck so it took 45 mins to dig him out. It was still fun though.

    BTW I hate salt!!!:angry1::angry1::angry1:

    I love the snow. But we don't use salt around here in Colorado...went up around Westcliffe Colorado and did some snow running on Superbowl sunday. Slid into the ditch next to the trail. [​IMG]
