Snow? No Problem!!

Anyone tested out their 08 in the snow yet? We have about a foot and a half of snow now and these things are tanks in the snow. I had a half ton chev before this and winter time meant 4x4 all the time because the back end was so light. Not anymore!!!

I'm with Brant... pictures in the snow would be great to see.

My 2002 does really well in the snow... never have needed added weight.

I love my 2002 in the snow. It does handle great in the fowl weather in Michigan. Although I need new tires before first snow here in Michigan.

Ya tires most likely helps too. First thing I did after I bought the truck is put on some 33" BFG's to replace those brutal continental tires.

Are you running stock wheels? Have any pics of your rig up that are full size?

my obs does great in the snow. the added weight of the diesel does wonders. Ive never had a gasser that could perform in the slick stuff like my diesel... the weight is a dis advantage in the reel deep stuff I have had my truck stuck prety bad and had to be pulled out by a cummins.
