Its all about how you drive what you have. Its not what you have. Last year i took my 96 mercury cougar out and used it to pull other people out of ditches. It was a v8 and rwd. I drove my festiva everywere with out getting stuck to bad that i couldnt get out my self. I carry a shovel in the winter just cause my car sits low.




Man do i get a kick outta helping lifted 4x4 jeeps out of the snow with my rwd mercury.


I make it a goal to put as many hours drivein in the snow as i can to get myself ready for out west. O and its just fun

I don't wheel it. I use it for trips and camping.
How hard was the solid front axle swap? I've been thinking about doing it to my '95 silverado.

I'm callin BS. Yeah, it's DEFINITELY about how you drive and there's plenty of asshats with Jeeps who can't drive to save their lives, but the laws of physics still apply and RWD is not good enough to pull the weight of 2 vehicles on ice when one is stuck unless you have the studs from hell

How you drive in the snow definitely matters. Combining smart driving with a good all-wheel-drive vehicle shod with winter traction tires is even better.

Edit: I just figured out that you live in Indiana. Once you are out West, you might find that a rearwheel drive car will be inadequate despite good driving skills. Some of the hills are steep, long, and icy enough that it would be hazardous to attempt to drive it regardless of car. There is any doubt, the best choice would be to avoid driving that particular route.

Current storm + all-wheel drive + bad choices =

Nice Whip. I sold my 04 350z a few months ago and got myself an 04 subaru wrx. Im curious to see how your car will fare when the big storms hit. I drove my 350z once last year to my local hill when the roads were dry. After that, i parked it up when it started to snow more.

I tried driving my 350z once with snow on the ground... lets just say... that didn't go too well... (i wasn't even able to get out of my driveway. But i only had all seasons on.) If you plan on driving that, you better have some good winter tires.

That was my first car and my dream car at the time... now i know its better to be practicle over anything else... especially if you love this sport...

1.Lying on the internet doesn't impress anyone. Your 1996 RWD Mercury Cougar didnt help anyone out of the snow, certainly not a bunch of 4x4 jeeps.

2. YES, It matters A LOT what you drive actually. The type of vehicle, drivetrain, tire, etc. So your statement is baffling.

3.Please dont bring your Mercury Cougar out west, its gonna end up a ditch ornament any where with snow.
