    Save your gas money and buy a good set of snow tires.

    A couple scratches on front bumper when garage door fell on it. Crease in the back bumper where my truck got into a fight with a pole.
    I kick myself in the rear for not getting a 4x4....

    Of course you mean NORTHeast coast. There's absolutely no reason I'll ever NEED it here. If I still lived in my previous state of NJ (I just returned from there 2 hours ago, actually), I would have 4X4 just like I did on my '96 Ranger when I lived there.

    That's a fair statement to make for sure... I've always been able to get where I'm going in the snow where I've been in Ontario. The OPP closed the highway to the power plant I was working at a couple of time last winter, so I "had" to stay home and try out the 4x4 around town :D It's a beautiful thing.
