Photo is from Wednesday this week trying to climb a 7% grade where I starting sliding sidewise and needed chains to finish the climb
And your truck is 2017 F250 Diesel? If so, I wish they had made mine like yours!

I was stuck. Tires spinning and sliding off the side of the road. I had to shovel for an hour to clear the road enough to get back into my lane so another truck could pass me. They had tire chains and swapped out with me. I could drive up the 8% grade in 4x4, But I couldn't tow the trailer. The other Ford with front chains, hooked up and got my trailer over the summit. where I traded back and towed it the rest of the way.

Just an early snow storm in Utah. And a day spent gathering cattle off the mnountain
