Ill never have my truck in a situation where I would wish I had a DCSB. I don't do trail runs or desert excursions... Im not against it but We don't have much of that around here. Logging roads, getting to streams and finding some unplowed snowy roads is probably the extent of my off-road use. I'm upstate NY Adirondacks.
And to touch on the snow here... there is some really good backcountry skiing here that I just opened my eyes to last Winter. Long hikes, (6 miles round trip!) but worth it to ski some really cool areas. Plan on doing a lot more this winter. So anybody east coast looking for some good skiing, check it out!
I got family just south of buffalo. Their use to be all kinds of ATV/dirt bike trails but kids got stupid and started tearing up the farmers crop and stuff and farmers put up fences/gates. They open them in the winter when there is snow.
