hmmm, I was beginning to think snow was a fabled or extinct creature! here in Indiana, where it should already be in the 70's and 60's…we got 90º temps yesterday!

Luckly I am from South Texas, otherwise I might have had a heat stroke cutting the grass!

wait for it………………a little more……………almost…


Yup, now!!! I am now ready for cold weather!

With a prerunner the only problem is when your stuck... your stuck... It's a blast as long as you don't get into the deep stuff and don't come to a stop..

We brought them up there. Had a bunch of stop to hit. Yes airing down helps A LOT in snow wheelin. I just air down my tires and have a bunch of capable rigs to go with. A winch is the best safety though.

Nice vid StevO, For that snow do you think a skinny chained tire would outperform a wide chained tire?

It looked soft like you might want to get down to dirt vs. float and slide off inclines.

Can you clear chains on the front of your trucK?
A lot of the snow we wheel in is deep enough I don't know if you would want to get to the bottom and chains will certainly do that, especially on a narrower tire. I'd think in a foot or less of snow the skinny tires would be better but in deep snow wider would give you the flotation.

I can clear chains on the front and have done it once when I chained up all four but wouldn't normally risk the extra strain on the CV's. The chains make the wheels skip so much I would think it's too risky unless you really needed them. ....Steve

Its a tough choice, either sink to the frame or slide off the road. I've ran chains on the front with out any problems, but I don't have a locker yet.

I go with the 35X15.50X15 Baja Claws. Nice and wide with planty of traction. Haven't had a problem yet.
