Sadly, I had to sell my '72 Jimmy project, but at least I got something already roadworthy, a '99 Suburban:



Still have my van too. With mpdsnowman gone, I think I'm the only van driver left on here.

My stuff is pretty old and basic compared to a lot of you guys, but it works for me. My vehicle options tend to be limited with a family of 6...

Haha, at first I thought you meant what you got pulled behind! It's crazy fun! Anyway, I was rocking an old AWD Caravan (lol), this year's probably going to be a PT Cruiser; it's actually not that bad for as far as space goes.. just uhh... get good tires.. A Subie might be a good call, but I've had space issues in the past; maybe it was just the way I was loading it. Honestly, the 91 AWD Caravan has been one of the better things I've driven! It's super comfy, tons of space, and it has pretty decent clearance. JUST MAKE SURE TO BRAKE EARLY lol.

iirc, Chrysler used a Steyr AWD system.. the same supplier to Benz.

too bad the only AWD Minivan you can get these days is the Toyota Sienna... and unfortunately they come with run-flats.

and... regardless of what you drive.... get snow tires.

Dunno man, I just know that it felt awesome going through new powder in it. It was awesome to glide around and get sideways; not something you usually associate with a van. Man.. I'm kind of sad we haven't fixed it yet.

Hmm, I see fairly new AWD dodge vans running around every once in a while; nothing super new, but I know they're newer than 91 lol.

No doubt, but some vehicles can *get away* with lower end snow tires.

My vehicle of choice to take to the mountains is my 2005 Nissan Titan Crew Cab 4x4 LE truck. Never fails me and plenty of room!

Last year I went up in my 97' 4Runner while it was snowing (with snow sticking to the ground). It's a 2WD with AT tires, and I never had to put chains on
