I do believe 4 wd drive would have sit still for a while in that one too. dont look at it as your truck got stuck in the snow look at it as the snow stuck to your truck??? looks like mother nature just wanted to prover her point.

That's a lot of snow and while 4x4 couldn't alone get you out of it, it certainly helps in snow.

Buffalo is pretty well set-up for snow removal. You can get along fine with a 2wd, just gotta be smarter than the truck and not go out in the middle of a blizzard. Oh and good tires!!

That's not stuck, that's buried. 2wd works just fine, 10-12" of fresh powder with Blizzaks. Get a set of snow tires with cheap steelies, don't bother with the TPMS sensors, $500-$700.

I like Tirerack good service and reasonable prices. I bought the Blizzaks and put them on the OEM wheels, then purchased a nice wheel/tire combo for the other 3 seasons. I kept the tire sizes close to stock. The Toyota OEM tires I put on my Ranger which had the same size. The OEM tires truly are rim protectors, but my Ranger is 11 years old, I wasn't going to drop a bunch money on a truck that I only use 3500 miles per year. If I didn't have the Ranger I'd still ditch the OEM Toyota tires and sell them for $100 for all four.
