    Headed to the snow this weekend to hit a trail. Im expecting a lot of snow since we just had a bunch of big storms come thru here. Ive been snow wheeling before but not in anything with ABS. Im lifted 6" with 33' nitto mud grapplers. I will be airing down.

    Any pointers? LOL

    Yeah, I gots boost
    Just an FYI, I see quite a bit of snow up here in MT. I will say that the ABS on these second gens is sketchy at best. It has gotten me into way more trouble than its gotten me out of that's for sure. You'll learn what snow wants to make the truck do pretty quickly and like others said, throttle control and gear control is key.
