Around 5 inches fell today my 45 minute commute only took an hour and 45 minutes. The two bags of sand seemed to work pretty good I had them right at the rear axle. Only white knuckle spot was on our unplowed gravel road nice drift from the wind at teh top of a long hill. The stock Firestone Destination LE tires did a pretty good job.
In our list of tips we forgot a very good one keep the tank full more weight in the rear.
Did get to see a proverbial short filling. A moron in a RAM 4x4; I am not sure of any other areas but they seem to be kindred spirits, when you see a RAM usually a moron is driving it around here. Anyway he barreled past everone else who was going 30 mph, at about 50 came up on a stopped car hit his brakes spun and ended up sideways on top of a median facing the wrong way. Proof once again 4x4s get better traction but stopping is still the issue.
(note to any Ram drivers here since you are on a Tacoma site I am assuming you are not a moron because you own, or are interested in owning at least one great truck.)
Last leg of my drive home is a twisty hilly 2 lane to get home, a regular deer alley. Sure enough I come out of a blind curve and here is Bambi's mom licking snow off of the road. I hit the brakes and horn she starts to run slips and falls on the snow slides into the other lane and so I can slide past her. I am thinking, come on, my poor truck still has less than 350 miles on her.
