My wife had to drive 100 miles in a white out snow storm the other day and said every vehicle in in the ditch was a big truck! People get over confident in those big trucks. She has front wheel drive, good tires, takes it slow, does just fine.You know the other problem with the 4x4 monster? It can be all diffs locked, 4 lo, 55" tires and be stuck just like the rest of us. Because not everyone has 4x. So you sit and wait as they block the road in front of you lol. I got chains. 4x4 is nice. But you can make it without it.
I used to have an 85 grand wagoneer and that thing was so much better in the snow than my suburban. I'd love to have one of those again.
