I started up my snowblower this morning to clear out the driveway... got about six feet.... putt putt putt BANG!

No starty-runny

I think it threw a rod, finally. My father gave this to me when my parents retired in florida a few years back.. he bought it in 1960.

Guess I have to buy a shovel.... LMAO

I did some donuts last night in my crewcab. Well, not donuts per se, got a little speed, and heaved the wheel to the left and spun around while sliding in a straight line. With the crummy tires I have on the truck, I have a 7000lb tobogon!!!!!

I finally braved the elements last night and went out for a drive with some friends. Was weird being one of the very few vehicles on the roads except the snow plows (who werent doing jack anyways). I would scare my one friend every time i stepped on the accelerator just to make it slide a little bit. then went on this dirt road to a clearing and did quite a few donuts. Was a blast. Not too shabby for only being 2WD.

I was out in my 2000 eX PSD 4x4 all Saturday and I have to say, it handled the snow great! I am a firefighter in North Jersey and we were on standby as of 5:30 pm Sat. The eX never missed a beat! I love my new truck!

Had some fun with the Bronco last nite after my Fire Dept Standby. This morning used it to bust through the 4 foot high wall of snow that the town plow left in front of my driveway.

My ole' 70 did great out there. We live in a pretty hilly area and it handled everything with ease. I passed one group of people trying to get up a steep hill. They were two very riced out ricers. They had three people trying to push the one car up. It clearly wasn't happening. We just rolled on by. There was nothing we could do for them except suggesting to take a less steeper road to get into town (there are other options). They just kept at it and we kept going on our way.

It was awesome, I enjoy playing in the snow, mud, etc. usually not in a 2wd crewcab, but since my toy truck is completely disassembled, it will have to do.

7000lbs slides VERY well...
