I've watched Subaru's mob in pure snow with NO chains on and keep a lot of control so idk where people are getting off comparing chained tires and such to an AWD Subaru with snow tires. Clearance is obviously a plus, but just making it up to the mountain and down to get me my snowboard fix and around SoCal, the Subaru wins all day. Maybe if I need to lug shit off road, or tow things for my outdoor gear, but that isn't the title of the thread now is it.

'97 4Runner limited.
Still keeps up with everyone else.
In the end, fuck what you drive, it's how you drive it.
