Lightnings are so bad on snow and ice!!! I absolutely dreaded coming to a stop on even the slightest incline because you might as well just put it in reverse. I'm glad I only had to drive mine part of one winter. Some guys do it with sand bags, spare tire rims with snow tires on them and some even go as far as taking off the "ground effects" trim off every season so that moisture and salt can't get trapped and do damage. I figure save yourself the trouble, buy a cheap winter beater and keep the miles off the one that matters. I love my sacrificial '92 4Runner!!
