    Hi all,

    I'm a new Taco owner and feeling a little bit of buyer's remorse after purchasing a RWD Tacoma when I live at 7500 feet in the mountains. Looking for all the advise you could give a gal on tips and tricks for conquering the snow and mountain passes this winter.

    I'm sure this is a common biff move and if you could spare the "ohhh... you shoulda got a 4x4," I'd appreciate it :)

    Thanks guys,

    Val

    I would carry a set of tire chains if I was in your situation to start.

    Welcome !
    Winter tires if you have months of snow and ice,
    And weight in your truck bed.
    Sand bags or something else, there are water bags meant for truck beds that you can secure so you don’t get hurt by flying shit in the event of an accident.
