Already went out and got her stuck.

It was only for about an hour in a foot of snow. Those Michelin Latitude Tours are really terrible. Having my chainsaw helped a lot as the rear tires kept wanting to slide down the hill. Should have had a shovel(now rectified), unfortunately I have not found a good place to permanently mount a shovel. Anyone got and ideas? I have a 26 inch D handle shovel. Would love to have it somewhere on the vehicle outside of the cabin, but after crawling around underneath I have not seen an easy spot yet.

Re: Already went out and got her stuck.

Look at folding shovels from your favorite survival supplier. There's a lot of space underneath (outside of vehicle) the area where the spare is stowed for a shovel if you can create a suitable mounting method. Inside, add some rations, a gun and extra water for extended trips into the hinterlands just in case you get stuck for a long while and need to fend off Sasquatch or a hungry predator. Additionally, a set of Firestone Destination ATs would be a good all-around tire if you like to mix what's in your photo with decent on-road manners and low noise.

Re: Already went out and got her stuck.

I got mine stuck in some snow the first week too. The most embarrassing part was that I was trying to drive over a huge snow pile that was sitting in the middle of the parking lot behind my work. The snow was half melted, so the wheels just sunk in and the car was basically sitting on the undercarriage. I tried 4lo and some different traction modes, but the wheels would just spin and spin. The noise coming from the ESC sounded really bad...

Anyway, my brother came and pulled me out with his beat up old BMW e30. The big difference: he had proper snow tires

Re: Already went out and got her stuck.

Same here...went camping back in January and got stuck back in the woods. Those Michelin's are terrible in the snow! My friend pulled me out with his 97 Dakota...he just smiled at me the whole time.

Definitely going to put some better tread on the 18's before the snow comes back in Dec.
