    I drove the parkway from Wildwood to Lakewood (at 5am -- not long after the first wave.) and Lakewood to Woodbridge on Rt9 just to mix it up a little bit ..and try to stay away from all the tailgating commuter morons north of x82 with 1 foot of snow on their roofs.

    Left 4x4 on the entire time and probably averaged about 40 but maxed out at 60 on the few stretches they managed to actually nearly clear up with salt.

    There was next to nobody on the road until Tom's River, and nobody passed me except for 3 or 4 Dodge trucks doing well over 60.. draw your own conclusions there.

    All I have to say is I hate the stock dunflop tires.:mad: Other than that the Taco was pretty good in the snow, alot better than last year in the X-Runner on summer tires in 4 plus inches of snow.

    Ebay. They work well once you get the beams aimed properly. I bought them mostly for styling and find myself using the fog lights a lot more than I did with the stock headlights since the beam doesn't spread as much as it used to. That's by design, of course. :)
