Does no one drive a Dodge out there? Are Mr. Jeep and I all alone?

I drive a 98 Dakota single cab 5.2l 5sp... I had a similar Ram, but someone stole it, and I couldn't find a decent one to replace it with.
I don't take my Dakota out as much as I should, its too low, and I won't put a body lift on it. A 3" susp. lift is in the range of 1900 bones
, so I'm gonna wait till its paid off, and a lift is cheaper.

Do you scan them? turn down the resolution and they will get smaller. Nice pic though

bigger tires are better. You get a larger contact patch which translates into more traction

I have doubts as I can remember and intance where myself and others were getting stuck in the snow with a layer of mud under it. Some of us had very wide tires with aggresive tread.
Along comes this guy in a VW bug with tires as skinny as wagon wheels. The tires were chewing through the snow and mud and basically draging this little car along like nothing.
I wonder if the big fat tires are only better when hydro-planeing over mud at speed?

The difference is because it was a VW bug. The dif in them is not normal, It acts just like a locker, so they are the ultimate thing to build into a buggy.

Fat tires can get you going on the snow and ice, they're just no good at stopping!!

You definitely have to give yourself some space in the snow w/wider tires. I have only 12.5 wide at's but hey are half bald and don't stop so well. Going is good, stopping not so good...
