Looking back, we can safely say that was a mistake dropping a 4WD truck.

Both of these do just fine at my local spots. The lil 3 did great on the 395 stretch from Tahoe through Mammoth while it was dumping. In most conditions the biggest factor will be the driver.

Slammed trucks are dope.

I've always thought a regular cab shortbed would be fun to have.

Get you some winter tires!

Doubtful. That is all the way down. It raises back up to stock height. Also before anyone decides to put their foot in their mouth, I use air ride suspension 1: because my daughter is handicapped and it is easier on me and my wife if the vehicle is lower to get her in and out and 2: I like custom vehicles. And yes we also have a minivan. lol

well if he drives a newer ob or forester he has better ground clearance. i must be complete redneck. other than lowering it for your daughter's disability (which i completely understand), slammed cars look god awful. Like the most ridiculous, ugly, pointless look ever. Stock looks better (to me) 10 times out of 10.

btw some idiot figures he would do 50 on the highway.. he got maybe 5,000 ft ahead and I saw him spin out and almost hit the jersey barrier really good.. crazy man..

I kept my speed between 40-45 just because you need to leave space to slow and stop.

I'm going to be an arrogant Canadian for a second and say, "Pft, that's not a lot of snow." With that being said, UGH! I am jealous of how much snow you're getting. Everything is melting here. =(
