I am impressed by your plow rig. Nice.

Been plowed in multiple days this year. I have been the only person not digging my vehicle out. Simply put it into 4 low, let her warm up and mash the F out. Van is neigh unstoppable given its weight, footprint, tires and awd. Havent found a drift deep enough or a hill steep enough to stop me. Had some fun on a snowmobile trail as well but didnt want to stop to take photos for the uncertainty of sticking her and having to get the recovery gear out.

Interesting stuff guys. Looks like everyone is pleased with the overall performance in snow. Aside from that first time (where I had the Van for a few weeks at most) we just haven't had that much snow. I did put 200lbs in the back to help out, but with only maybe 4-6 inches of snowfall on any given day since then I can't say I've really tested it much. I will say it's been fine where I went and I've had no issues. It's not even that I had issues that first time, I just felt very disconnected. Most likely was in part (or all) because I just had hardly any seat time in it and in my other rides I've had tons of snow time. Hopefully next year we will get more snow! Now, I'm on the hunt for a summer tires setup!

Man O' man, that snow on top of her and all the gear over the rear bumper certainly helped out in the weight department!

She weighs 8300lbs to start (more during the summer on long trips). Add a few hundred pounds of snow and shes a veritable tank
