You know . . . to keep warm in case you get stuck!!! Like the little barrel that Saint Bernards carry around their neck for snow rescue.

I just dress warm...and keep a full tank of gas. If I get stuck, it'll be a shitty walk, but I work outside year round...I can handle it. Then just gotta make it to work to pick up a tractor, chain, and a 2nd driver and I'll have the Jeep out in no time.

Now if I were out wheeling off-road somewhere...I'd be bringing at minimum a shovel, strap, and a come-along (too broke for a winch...but eventually that would be replaced with a winch...lol).

Well last time it snowed alot I stopped at Home Depot and picked up three 50lbs sand bags, put 1 in the trunk and 1 behind each seat

Sure it was only 150 lbs but holy crap did it help my rear tires grip

When we go play in the snow(road trip) we
go on state,fed or county forest land
10s of 1000s of acres you might not see
another truck
so you need to be ready for the worst
but I wouldnt be out there in 30"

lift and skinny tired you could do it. There is solid road underneath it is way different than wheeling in the snow where there is still mud/ loose rocks under you.
