    Yes, there is still snow on the mountains surrounding Vegas. I went out with NVTTORA. Needless to say we didn't get very far before folks started getting stuck. All-in-all I think we may have made it 1 mile before deciding to turn around:mad:. The snow was deep and icy which made for a day of no traction. As for me, no stuckage. But I did have a problem pulling out a Lexus GX.

    Airing down tires.

    Cool pics. Is it better to air down for snow or keep it at like 35psi? I thought it was better to keep them inflated.

    Well the red 4runner aired down to 25 psi. And got stuck. Then when he was at 18 he had no problem. I aired down to 15 psi and had great traction.

    Yeah, I've never seen one like it either. It looks like it should be in African or Australia And it has full armor, except rear. After the past events the owner said he will be picking up front and rear winches.

    And its a Lexus which makes it that much more bad ass! Its takes some balls to take a 40K + car and make it into something like that and actually use it!
