    4WD does wonders on ice. If nothing else it splits the power distribution to four wheels instead of two and has less chance of spinning a tire. I drive on roads that are pretty much sheets of ice for months and 4WD is much, much, much better, safer and more capable than 2HI.

    Pretty sure the 4WD system will be fine going 60mph+ but just dont put it in 4Hi when you are going faster 50mph. I feel like these trucks are built for high-speed desert running. If you can go 70mph in the desert, i dont see why not in the snow. But if theres ice, be smart and slow down. I go 70mph in bad rain and im driving in 4Hi no problem. Just worry about visibility

    They banned those accounts for a couple days. But they can’t really ban anyone.
