So finally got take the new cruiser for a ride,,,and well it does't matter how nice your tires are, or how good your rig is running if you bury it in the snow you will be stuck.. The majority of the 30 miles was no problem breaking drifts up to the bumper, and haveing a good time at about the 30 mile mark the road disappeared I slowed down and sank into the snow, shiffted to low and backed up no problem. on my way back to what looked like a not so deep spot the right rear got sucked off the road, i almost got back out but soon new i was stuck. No worries though snow is easy to shovel,,,if you have a shovel . Mine just happend to be in the garge. along with my chains and all the other stuff that spent the last 4 years in the 60. To make a long story short no amoun of kicking and hand shoveling was going to free the stuck beast. I hicked to the top of a wind wept mountain to get cell coverage just long enough to call a friend. 4 hours later a full size chevy on 40" trxus sts came to my rescue. Two quick tugs and I was free. Sorry the picture sucks but camera phone was all I had. I can only wonder if chains would have helped what about a rear locker?? I think 37" would have been the only thing to save me that and going left when I went right.
