    You should have backed in and keep a snow plow attached... then you could just slap it in 4wd and put the pedal to the metal. =p

    (back to reality)... You have alot of snow to shovel.

    I'd do it. It's just a drift. It looks like it drops down to about a foot out a few feet. Just stay on the skinny pedal till you clear it.

    LOL I have pretty much the same thing in NJ only my truck is outside, not in the garage. Thinking about giving it a shot to show up my neighbors (1 has a Dakota and the other has a Frontier), both of whom are completely cleaning their driveway first.

    They have not begun to remove any snow here, I guess I'll wait it out. No place to go! There are a lot of big drifts all over.

    I would shovel first because I hate having to shovel snow after it is packed. Also, I just about took out my garage door a couple months back by trying to plow through a drift in my driveway. Damn ABS got all squirrely and I barely came to a stop in time.

    I'm pretty sure you'll be shoveling with either choice.

    ...and don't forget about the possibility of packing your tailpipe with snow.

    I wouldn't. You would be surprised what packed snow can do.

    thats a pretty good drift. i put some 4x4's on the edge of my driveway and it has worked great to keep the drifts away from the garage door
