Snow in MI

Post by Patbridges81 » Tue Dec 31, 2019 5:51 am

How much weight in the back of a rwd lowered 5 speed Chevy S10 xtreme would it take to drive in shitty ass Michigan winters? I was thinking like 450?

And what can I do to be able to attach pictures to my posts? Cause I tried and it says the file size is too large.

"Lowered" might be an issue. 2WD trucks aren't all that good at plowing snow with the undercarriage...

500-ish pounds would certainly help. "Tube Sand" is a good dual-purpose load. Weight, plus traction aid if/when needed.

We don't have an image hosting option here. You'll need to "host" them on the internet somewhere (Postimage, Tinypic, etc) and then link to them using the {img}{/img} tags, replacing the curly brackes ({}) with square brackets ([]).

Most pictures from cameras and phones are HUGE in native format - over 2 megabytes is common. I use a couple of different programs to resize them. Irfanview is relatively simple to use and free. My personal preference is to get image file size down around 50kbytes and ideally closer to 30kbytes.

Even simpler is a program where you just drag and drop your image and it automatically resizes them. I'll try to find it and post a link to it here.

Heres the truck. I'll definitely be getting some weight on the rear axle soon.
