I am going to be the first to admit the stability control in this thing is very competent. So easy to drive in the nasty crap even in 2WD.

I was amazed at this too! It didn't feel like I was slipping enough most of the time for 4wd.

: )~

It was mentioned above how well the traction control works.. The ability for this thing to right it's intended path of travel, before I can even react, amazes me!

Rig going straight going straight, BAMN! 60 degrees port! I panic freeze.. The ABS gremlins groan, and just like that we're going straight again. Unreal.

We had 5 inches in my part of north Alabama. Lots of ice and I trucked on through in 2wd no problems. Stability control did kick in a few times and worked well. I did disable and play a little in an icy parking lot

Welcome to what I live with for 25% of every year. It's not nearly as much fun as you make it sound.

I can imagine ! Here in SC we usually get it for 1 or 2 days, maybe once or twice a year, but it's always melted within a day or so. It's around just long enough to be fun....supposed to be in the 80's by the end of next week!
