Last year in Northern Oregon we had a big ice storm. The wife was getting cabin fever but I told her it was too dangerous to drive around on the ice. Too many people out there with little to no experience driving on ice. Then our daughter called and said she didn’t have any food in the house. Of course I did what any other dad would do and dug my 2002 Yukon XL out of the ice and took her shopping. Then the neighbors came knocking, made 4 trips to the grocery store that day. So far only one snow storm and the new ride ( 2017 Ford Flex Limited Ecoboost ) handled it just fine. The Yukon is now with my oldest son.

Good on ya for helping out, Speedy! I was actually looking at Chevy Tahoe's when I came across the Trailblazer for sale. $3500 and it was mine. I added the leveling kit when I rebuilt the suspension. Really like the way it rides. It's snowing right now, but we probably won't get more than 3", if that. Iowa's going to get more.

Neither of my "trucks" are 4WD or AWD. My 2003 S-10 is 4.3 V-6 powered with a 4 speed auto, does actually really well in the snow. I have a second set of rims with mounted/balanced studded snow tires and a set of chains for it(never needed to use the chains). My 2011 Tahoe Z71 is a whole different animal. Even with all season Goodyear A/Ts on all four corners, it's a handful with a 5.3 V-8 and a 6 speed auto. It's very much like a Silverado, you have to add serious weight to the rear to keep it going or it will swap ends on you really quick. Might be one of the reasons the S-10 is so good, it has a 180lb hard bed cover and a pair of 60lb sand bags in the rear corners of the bed.
