D35 w/LSD
 
Spells TROUBLE in the snow! I got stucker than $?!^ :eek: Had to dig to get turned around and the white stuff was only a couple feet deep.
Also I noticed that when you veer left the rearend wanted to swap ends with the front? I actually sliped a full 90 deg's at one point. My toyota PU never did that.

I need a locker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was still a kick in the butt though. :D

Glad you had some fun in the snow. I always thought that the LSD was better than being locked, on that stuff.

My jeep is stock but i have no problem in the snow. Never got stuck from the foot and 1/2 that snowed this month. I had a mazda miata with lsd.. i didnt get stuck in the snow with it eighter even when snow was rubbing the bottom and the miata was only 3-4" from the ground.

I personally think something like a heavyduty lsd is better than a locker since the tires can still turn independantly but not freely or together.

Thats it I'm buying a Miata :)
anyways,
If it isn't the diff and the tires were ejecting the snow it must be........me :confused:
I've never had this happen til I got this vehicle. Sounds like I better go try this again in the morning!

tj's do tend to get a little squirrely in the snow. that whole light-weight short wheel-base thing. personally, i enjoy it and miss it a little now that i'm in AZ.

Though TJs may look light, they're actually significantly heavier than most cars on the road due to their full steel frame and heavy steel tub. My empty TJ weighs in excess of 4200 lbs. and most are well over 3600 lbs. :)

^^^ TJ wieghs almost as much as a ZJ :D
