jpcnorthwood is starting off with a positive reputation.
My 2wd made it through two nasty blizzards this winter. The first one dumped 13 inches of snow between 10pm and 4am. The wind made some of the biggest snow drifts I have ever seen and I have been in Michigan for almost nine years. The plows didn't start plowing until several hours after I got to work. I left for work at about 5am and made it in to work early. I left work on time(the roads were still Shi***) and the truck got me home in one piece. That was after stopping at Lowes and Home Depot, which are not really on my way home.

I did end up with snow in my air intake and I got stuck pulling into my driveway. BUT, my two wheel drive, loaded down with heavy snow in the back pushed right through the snow.

It was actually a fun drive in, with all of the fish tailing and intentional sliding I was doing.

I used to run a full size 2wd in the snow/ice with about 300 lbs at the tailgate, and it did great. My 2wd ranger is almost useless in the snow though...pretty sad

I just park outside and let the bed fill up with snow and ice. I always have enough when the big storms hit.
