 Differential Lockers and Limitied Slip Units

I wasn't being critical. I was pointing out it works for tractors too....

I absolutely agree that weight in the bed is the way to go with the proviso that you still have to stop the thing.

All those winters in Alaska taught me that it is easier to get going than to get stopped.

 Differential Lockers and Limitied Slip Units

When I lived in the (sort of) suburbs I had a neighbour who had bought the most expensive house he could possibly afford, at the expense of everything else, including his wheels.

It was almost comical, nice house, 2 15 - 20 year old derelict cars, 19" push mower for a 2 acre lot, etc., etc.

I routinely had to boost his car, or plow the winrow left by the town snow plow, so he could get out of his driveway. He had no snow blower or anyone to clear the driveway either. He said shovelling was cheaper than paying for membership at gym. ;->

Then one snowy morning, much to my surprise, he pulled up in a brand new Toyota 4Runner, smiling ear-to-ear, told me I had boosted his car and plowed his driveway for the last time, and off he went down the snowy road.

When I got out near the main road, were our street made a big sweeping downhill curve, there in the middle of somebody's lawn, was my neighbour & his new truck.

It seems he had failed to read the part in the owner's manual about 4WD having little impact on the steering or brakes effectiveness.

It's real good at getting idiots going way too fast though.

Best of luck.

We should be seeing a bunch of them at first snow any day now. Smile

Been there, done that already ......

Friday was a true example of the old adage about the weather in Canada, "If you don't like the weather, either wait 5 minutes and it will change, or drive a few miles down the road, it will be different there.".

One of my crews are finishing up a job north of here a ways, about 400 miles north actually.

In Toronto it was sunny and 65 on Friday, it was 34 and they got a little over 4" of wet snow at the site.

Best of luck.

Murf;
A number of years ago I had a 74 Jeep Cherokee with AWD. When I bought it my father said they had some in the BC Hydro and they felt so sure footed that they would bite you. You would be travelling too fast for the conditions. It did once as I put it in the snow bank at a country crossing in ice conditions.
There is something to be said to learning how to drive in adverse conditions. Most of us have made some mistakes. It would be nice if the average joe public had some desire to learn. It is not always a beautiful day even in California.
