Hey guys, after the big snow storm in the east, I figured we all probably got some cool shots of our trucks in the snow. I posted a couple in another thread to show my "lift" and figured what the hell I'll start a thread. Post em up!

Here's my 96 sitting on 32x11.50's with warrior shackles, Long AAL and 1.5" TT.

Sitting in about 15 inches of snow after making it up my steep ass driveway snow flying 10 feet in the air:

Pulling my dad out since he likes running performance street tires all year round and slid his ass off the driveway:

Realized the snow was beyond my doors when I went to get out. There was somewhere around 30 inches in the drift next to my shop I was driving through and 24 inches everywhere else. Decided to get a nice shot from the front of the truck too at this point.

She was just plowing through the snow, it was rolling up over the hood as I was hitting the 3 and 4 foot piles the plows left and flying over them. I was thoroughly impressed, I really expected to get stuck but she proved herself worthy.

That last picture is hilarious. Mine doesn't do so great but I have undersized tires.

This is from a crazy storm we had last year. Theres an explorer underneath all that. Right now in Buffalo all of our snow melted, its really strange.

This is how I park in the winter. Drive until the snow stops ya, which for me isnt that far.

Your ex is awesome!
 






haha yeah I like that picture too. The crazy part about that picture is I drove it there and then just threw it in park. It looks like it's buried and stuck but it's not. I just tossed it in reverse, punched it and backed right up and then kept going.

The truck is really nothing special either, very mild mods. I actually like that I don't have flares too. I was going to add them but after I got my wheels/tires I kinda of liked how the tires stuck out. So far no trouble with cops for how far they stick out (it's not bad, I've seen much much worse). To be honest I was ready to part out or scrap this truck before this storm. I've had so many problems with it and it still has issues out the arse. But after literally driving through anything on the road I could find and then yanking out a 5300 lb F-150 from the snow bank, I decided she deserved a second chance. Plus painting my damn hood took so long and I love how it came out lol.
 












Good Gawd! What is all that white stuff piled up everywhere!?

Unfortunately between starting problems & the fact that Vermont/New England has seen ALMOST NOTHING for snow this year, I've got nothing.

Hoping to be able to play in the snow soon!
 






It's been a pretty mild winter here in Indy so far...

We get a little snow once in a while. No more than 1 - 2 inches. NOTHING like the pix! The big deal is ice storms. People here completely freak out when things ice over. Real bumper car madness!!
 






haha I bet; if the plows stopped doing their work here people would lose their minds too. I drive in snow all the time and people bug out. Oh stay in you'll die if you go out. No, not really just drive slow, don't do anything stupid and you're fine. Remember 4x4's stop just as fast as a 2wd and people tend to forget that. I see more 4x4's wrecked than 2wd's. I daily drove a Mustang for 2 years and I made it through winter. For some reason all I can think of right now is the Joker "it snows and people lose their minds" lol.
 






Going snow wheeling tomorrow so I should have better (more current) ones.

But to subscribe, I'll post up this pic from a loooong time ago. Basically stock. 30" tires. I did NOT drive into a snow bank- the snow in front is just what I pushed in front of me.

Looks very similar to what my truck did haha. I felt like I was a lawn mole tunneling under the snow.
 






^^If I drove fast enough it looked like a nuclear submarine running on the surface with the snow coming over the hood.
