Haha. I thought maybe it was some new trend amongst D90 drivers.

Been riding the fire engine for the past 36 hours with more one ahead of me. It seems the relief shift can't get in.

VDOT official stopped plowing by mid morning in Loudoun due to conditions.

It is very hard going out there. Every run results in a stuck ambulance or fire engine.

Almost 2 feet near Orange, VA. The LR4 finally met its match.

It really is cheating with this truck. Parked my Taco and wife acura in the driveway, Parked the Cruiser on the lawn so they could plow the street (straight up redneck! in the burbs). Shoveled the driveway all around the Cruiser, had a nice piles halfway up the grill, and walked through it without even engaging center diff lock.

This truck is so awesome in the snow, maybe its the AWD, maybe its the Duratracks, maybe its the 7000lb curb weight....

Then i saw this exhibition of intelligence.

Here on Martha's Vineyard, the day started with 40mph sustained wind at the beach. The dog loved the cool air:



Now, on this evening's ride to the emergency dept for work, we had 12-17 inches, thick/heavy snow. I live down a 2mile dirt road; the Wrangler Rubicon with KM2 did quite well. The snow packed down with the wheels sinking only about 6in in. Had the tow strap and the winch ready for myself and others. No complaints for the Jeep's performance.

I share the sentiment. We have two Wrangler Rubicons, and although you can mod the defender to be comparable, there is not comparison in stock form. And as someone else mentioned, we would hate to see our garage queens get rusty from the salt.

Hahaha - Red Bank DPW - not surprised.

A TLC on Duratracs must be awesome in the snow. Does that have locking diff's too?

HAd a little fun driving around in Nashville. We got about 8 inches here which is about the same as 30 inches where I grew up in Maine. Drove through Percy Warner Park which was beautiful in the snow. Had a little fun when I stopped to pull a dodge pickup truck out of a ditch.

He's talking FJ Cruiser not TLC.

Spent the afternoon sledding. We packed a nice track down on a steep hill side with a Tithonus that was sitting around. The sledding was fast and furious but then ran out of rum. Procured more and had a great day

Has a blast down here in DC. Took her all along the mall. No issues getting anywhere. Only stopped when I unwisely tried to go 200 yds down my back alley, snowdrifts just made it too deep. But just backed it out and all was well.
