    Post up your 5 lugging experiences in the snow. We all know 4x4 has better traction/handling but the new 5 Lugger Tacoma with traction control handles pretty fine!

    No real problems here in Fairbanks.

    I have 4 studded tires which helps. Plus 4 sandbags tied down in the bed (D-ring mod). Plus another rim with studded tire and a floor jack chained down in the bed. I learned that trick after I got a flat tire on the Richardson Highway one night in November when it was 20 below zero. It was no fun trying to winch down the spare tire from underneath the bed and change the tire, all while using the crappy OEM jack and crank.

    Live and learn.
