Fun with the truck in the snow [vid]

Got off work early tuesday so I decided to play around in my yard with the truck. There was about a foot of snow but the truck seemed to just glide over it... until I got stuck, bad lol

Took out the shovel and dug around each tire, put metal clamps behind the tire and she got out like a champ! I'll be going back with the big tires lol

Enjoy

Heh, ah yes... the good ol' GoodYear Wrangler RT's in the snow... I remember those days, they were absolutely horrific for any kind of wet/slippery surface! Hell, I didn't even like them on dry pavement for much of anything! I have a set of BFG A/T's, and it's like night and day.

I'm sure most Ranger owners agree... driving around in a Ranger in the winter (Regardless of what tires you have on,) is an absolute riot. Well, I find that it is anyways.

Nice video by the way, looked like you had fun.

With the extra height and aggresive tread you'll have a much better chance, a locker might help too
