I got to enjoy about 60 miles of backroads driving here in Southern WI. Most of the roads hadn't been plowed yet and were about 8 inches deep of powder snow, with some drifting to add more technical stuff. SO MUCH FUN! There's nothing like the quiet, smooth ride of fresh snow and watching it just blow out the sides and into a huge cloud of white dust....

Ran in 4-HI the whole time with the fun police turned off, some drifting MAY have occured. These Nitto Terra Geappler G2 tires really work well in the snow. Average speed was probably about 45 mph, just a good cruise.

Anyways, here's the aftermath. My shop has a heated floor, but I think it's going to take awhile to fully melt. It should be nice and clean though afterwards, at least the blackwalls will be polished.

I was impressed with the handling on the ice when I did 400 miles in the oHIo winter ice land on Christmas Eve day. I ran AWD most of it and it handled like a champ. Much better than my pick-up I sold for this.

I did get the wheel wells cleaned out but it was a few days before the weather broke enough to get the salt off.

I really enjoy snow driving although we get snow maybe once a year here. And since we’ve had kids, the wife doesn’t let me out in the snow lol. Glad you enjoyed it!

I actually don’t think we’re gonna see any snow this year. It’s late January and we haven’t seen a dusting all winter

I absolutely love that color. Nice looking rig!
