    Didn't see a thread on this when I searched so I figured I'd make one. I know a lot of us (especially in the north) are lucky enough to park the mustang for the snow and crappy winter months. what gets you through the snow?

    heres my 03 ranger... Started its life as a stock 2wd truck till I got it... Now 4x4 and gets me through anything I've needed it to[​IMG]

    At first I was thinking you meant like Booze! So I would have said Rum!! Haha...

    So my 1999 Chevy Blazer gets me through the Colorado winters. Basically a brand new truck, just looks old. Great in the snow, much better than my 2010 Toyota Highlander, but my tires are shot on that SUV so that is the main problem.

    Bought a wife a multi purpose rig. Takes the fam bam around when needed and hauls most of what I need to haul.
