It's just here we are used to driving in the snow.
I have driven in the snow plenty of times but here it seems like if a snow flake hits their windshield the immediately vear off the road.

I just bought this 4x4 beast for the winters! I do a lot of work in the mountains and it gets cold!

I am in the process of building it. I will probably make a new forum topic on it. I plan on having it spray insulated (roof and walls 2 in thick). Floor is already insulated and lined. Getting a solid wall/partition built to separate cargo and cab. Going to route exhaust from machine into the floor and diesel exhaust out the roof like a chimney. Then build a box on the outside of the van with all the hookups and switches/ignition for the machine. Will be able to start the machine without opening doors and hook everything up. Building it out so the doors almost never have to be opened except for pulling hoses out. I also have a second heater in the back of the van that's tied into the vans engine. So I will keep the van running for the first few min at each job to keep it toasty in the back.

Have had many lines freeze and it is extremely irritating. Gets so cold in the mountains I have watched water freeze in seconds. So I'm going to weatherproof this beast!
