    Dissapointed? I like my truck, but not enough to have to snow blow just to play with it in the snow.

    Got about 6" here as well.

    You should only need to use the snow thrower to get to the truck. From that point on, you shouldn't have to worry about how deep the snow is. I was out after Gov. Patrick shut down the state last year and had no problems at all with the stock BFG's

    Regular "non ORM", trac control disabled, M2 gear, rear unlocked.....absolute beast mode in the power slide game. I don't like the locker engaged on ice because it tends to shudder and it's risky if you happen to catch traction. I don't like ORM in the snow because the throttle response is too lethargic and I do appreciate ABS if my power slide gets a little sketchy.

    I've been out a few times. It's slippery :). 4WD drifts working well.

    Met Bob from Wakefield today, in NH, with his new 2013 Red Screw. Told him about FRF - hopefully you have a new MA guy
