Anyone been in the snow yet in the 6.7L???

I might get to try mine out this weekend on a road trip and was just curious if there is much difference between the 11 and the 08's? Also I hope the stock Michelin 20's work as good in the snow as other Michelin's I've ran on F150's.

Thanks

I loved having my 08 in the snow. The new one is better in every facet. Granted, my 08 didn't have traction control, or electric shift 4x4. The electric locker is awesome, though it's not too useful in snow or ice. My new one has no problem blowing through 2-3 foot drifts in 2 wheel drive. Everybody seems to hate the Continental's that come on the 18" wheels but I loved em on my 08 and the same on my '11.

Yeah the 18's continental's weren't to bad.

Good to hear the 11's do just fine in the snow. I think I'll be trying mine out this weekend.

Sounds good also about the Michelin's getting to much traction.

The ELA makes a big difference as the front is diesel heavy and the back is lighter.

I didnt have luck with the Michelin 20's. Snow wasnt too bad but not good. The HATED ice and even wet roads. The Contentals didnt seem bad on my friends 11.

I have Nitto Terra Grapplers now, very good but they are wearing big time.

Not sure what my next set of 20s will be!

Have michelin AT2 20's and zero issues in snow or wet weather. Had good for one year before, they were worthless. F-150 had continentals, only tire I ever had that would make noise in the rain, way better than the goodyear.
