Yep, not quite the 2 foot mark here where I am, but 18" or so probably.

I'm freakin pissed, they've been plowing the crap out of every road all night..... no deep stuff anywhere to go romp in. But it did remind me how much I hate these Michelin's, I need to get some tires that have some rain and snow traction to them.

WHAT! I went out and did doughnuts yesterday in the 90!


Driving with the detroit in the back and the center diiff unlocked is real fun! The 90 wants to just plow streight forward! Locking the center diff helps, but it still plows forward until you let off the gas a little.

To do a proper doughnut start off rolling forward, then cut the wheel all the way and apply throttel,, you don't need much, i can do it near ideling in second gear.

What's your problem, you have a D90. When it snowed like crazy 3 years ago the first thing I did that morning is take the 90 out. Hell if it snows here I'll take my rolling chassis out and flenstone (spl) my ass around

Anyone have a snow blower?

Sometimes I don't really like living in the city...

Blue is going nowhere for a while. We picked up 18.
