I love snow!
With lockers front and rear I can whip out the *** end and drift it for pretty much as long as I want then just counter steer it back straight. Both front tires grabbing makes it easy to correct. We go up the mountains around here and find stuff to climb. Tell you though front and rear winches really come in handy in the snow!
Had a situation where a Toyota in front if me went up a pure ice logging road hill where his truck slid back and bumper was pinned against a tree. No saw and no going forward! I ran cable ahead of him winched ahead till I could then lower rear line, pulled him up hill and off tree then lowered him down.
Used it a few more times that day trying to get home stuck in a blizzard. Buddies non locked trucks couldn't make it back up the snow hills to get to main road so I anchored the front with winch to a stump or tree, then pulled 2 trucks one at a time to the top. We all made it back that nite.

Listening to Kirby and 73 talk is like hearing a conversation between the silver and bronze metal winners at the special olympics.

Never go gold metal retard.

Got to test the new tires at the local orv park over the weekend. I'm very impressed with the amount of traction I got. Not to mention the improved ride, increase in power and gear. Simple swap of tires has created a whole new animal. Next upgrades include a grizzly locker for the front diff, headers and single chambers. Gonna remove some leaves from the rear spring pack and build anti wrap bars. Then I want some dang seats and good shocks!

Also wired the truck front to rear for the winch with a dual battery setup and built the base for my front bumper.

Looks sick! Any issues?

We just got 10"s of snow over here and I had a blast just wheeling around in town and up steep sightseeing roads where nobody else would attempt..

Front suspension works great but the rear needs work.

Are you just welded rear?
I'm ditchin my front Detroit for a ARB which I've already got. Driving around at high speeds in the snow it definitely has some funny pulls now and then especially on a hard blast on the throttle.

What's your plan on a locker? And please don't weld it

Welded rear open front right now. Gonna go with the Yukon Grizzly locker because it's cheapest and has a no questions asked lifetime warranty. Gonna swap to a smaller diameter ram for quicker steering soon and add high steer to gain a few more degrees of steer. Gonna swap over to a dual pulley steering pump this weekend. (Not necessary but good piece of mind.)

I'd say. No. I can actually watch the tires stop spinning from the axle wrap.
