It was good! Unfortunately by the time I drove up there most of the snow was gone and it was really icy. She drove well and didn't get stuck had to use 4hi when climbing up the mountain due to the snow/ice but she made it up without a wimper. All in all not a bad way to pop my snow cherry in this thing, and i think I may have fallen in love with her some more. Best truck I've owned by a longshot.

Glad you had fun. I gotta ask, where was this? The landscape looks a lot like where I grew up.

This was in Flagstaff, AZ around O'Leary mountain, couldn't tell you exactly which trail I took because I chose at random and some of them aren't marked

Gotcha. I grew up next door in the land of entrapment. I've been to Flagstaff a few times and it's pretty similar.

mu number one tip is air down, and air down low for snow. I run 5psi in my tires on the deep snow. 10psi for rock crawling.

Momentum is the key when driving in snow. Slow and steady will get you around much better than the stop and go.
