I'm just going by my experience in NE Ohio with a 2wd pickup truck. When I first moved here from GA, and there was a little bit of snow on the ground, my truck couldn't climb a little hill.
But after adding 600 pounds to the back end, it does ok in the snow and ice. -- Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
