2wd Duallies and SNOW

Hello Everybody,

Can anybody share their experience of how a 2wd Duallie F350 behaves in the snow and on ice?

Wax the kitchen floor, put on a good pair of socks and practice. Driving is pretty much the same. No fast starts, No fast turns, No fast stops untill you get used to it. Snow and ice are a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. My biggest piece of advice would be to stay away from high traffic areas untill you get the hang of it.
I've been in the Chicago area for quite awhile and I laugh every time it snows. People tend to forget how to drive in it. Every snow is the first snow

Does this count as a "Duallie"?



With the weight (15,000) it takes off really well. The front end tends to plow (continue straight) when I turn, even from a dead stop when accelerating. Foot off pedal - turn - foot back on pedal. Definately stay on the road. I get stuck in a heavy dew.
