Ok, I'm back but with a different vehicle that I just purchased. It's an 07' FJ Cruiser with the off road package and HD winch and bumper combo.. It currently has a spacer lift in front for leveling and it has the 265/70-17 studded Duratracs on it. Yes, it also has the rear diff lock and A-Trac, I would like this rig when done to possibly get me to our property in 2 feet of snow when needed. I have snow wheelin'experience in other rigs but not sure where this FJ C would need for upgrades. Anybody who's had to make a similar trip let me know what you got please. Thanks for all the wealth of knowledge here. limits yes, I would like to keep it with out changing the gears and doing 35's. So yeah 33's max. So yes a budget snow wheeler and still DD if needed. ideas?
