    Stupid weather here in MO - 14" snow in blizzard conditions.
    30mph sustained winds = 5' drifts!

    I'm in NE MO -30 miles from Iowa.
    We would share the snow since it shut down a lot of business in our area and is hard on the livestock, etc.

    Did you stop in the deep stuff, did it feel like you were going to get stuck, did you use 4 low w/rear diff locked?

    I was in 4 hi with the rear locked - my stuck was temporary with a little forward/reversing to get me free.
    I didn't get into the 'deep' stuff as the drifts were 4'+!
    I think some was due to high centering as my skid plate and rear diff were leaving marks in the snow.
    4-low provided too much torque and i spun the tires too easily.
