I watched a video on YouTube that made me skeptical about using the Detroit as a DD. But what do you guys think?
I have detroits front and rear in my jeep and and driven it in snow.... (Primarily in rear wheel drive only)..... The biggest thing is to roll into turns and Be passive on throttle reapplication. Accelerate hard while turning and it's going to lock and make controlling the vehicle much harder..... Gas=spins tires=locks diffs=hold on
If you have manual lockout hubs on the front, you can leave one unlocked and three wheel drive it. Will make it less dicey as the front won't lock up. I haven't tried that technique yet but it came from a reliable source. Mine has been manageable and creepy crawlers are hardly a good snow tire to begin with.
