First off I'm new to this, I tried searching for this, with no luck. So assuming I'm right which is rare around my house (but let me know).... anyways moving on.
I was curious how every ones tacoma's are in the snow, I live in northern New Hampshire, We don't get snow year around but, we get wintery mix or snow and rain making road condition less then passable for some cars and trucks with all our hilly terrain. I've always owned Ford Explorers and I loved the Auto 4x4 drive switch where when it is selected it runs in two wheel drive till it notices slippages which it kicks in the front wheels to pull you along. I've always felt safe in them doing extremely dangerous speeds in the worse condition (granted I test my stuff so I know the limits) the time I bag about the most was 2008 or 09 we got a noreaster and as many of us new englanders know the snow bands follows 495 north which is a 6 lane highway 3 north 3 south, I was coming home from the bottom of CT New haven maybe? but since you couldn't see the lines and the plow trucks couldn't get on the road due to the high volume of traffic I became in patient being the asshole from New Hampshire. I turned the 10in deep snow and slush break down lane into the 3rd lane and before long I had most of the good drivers and other trucks hot on my heels while I maintained 60 to 65 MPH the speed limit on the best day while the two other lanes bearly reach 30 to 35 mph for short burst of time and the Explorer pulled me threw and kept me safe whether blind luck or the lord only looks after the stupid. if your still with me I thank you. recently here in NH we have been getting snow and slush and I've been out playing and I'm very happy with my taco. granted I hate the ABS and the trac. Control which is out to kill me. moving down the road in 2w it feels loose but you know if she breaks you can pull it around with some controlled break and gas pumps. (I had weight in the back figured we weren't getting any more snow for the season so I took them out only 140lbs worth mainly just for sand if I can't get up an icy hill)in 4w the truck is very solid on slick roads I can pull left and right and the truck just goes left and right with little argument going at slow speeds 30 35mph. yesterday I pulled a police type car up a steep grade and a shoe box with wheels up the hill as well. if your from the area its the road leading to gunstock ski resort right by the rd cat path where the tuesday before was a 10 car pile up due to the snow which gave me the motivation to help those cars out. so me real question is how does every feel about there taco in the snow? other then those annoying computers out to kill us like the terminator.
