I learned a handful of things:
-31" tires at 10 psi will float on consolidated snow on a lot of instances, but if there's a soft spot and you break through you're probably not coming back up.
-31" Goodyear MT/Rs at 10 psi don't hold to snow quite as well as 40" IROKs at 4 psi.
-Having a rear locker but no front locker on off-camber snowdrifts can be quite an interesting experience.
-I need to keep the steering wheel straighter but anticipate the movement of the vehicle on the drifts to help point me in the direction I need to go. As usual, I need more practice.
-According to Jacki, my 31" tires look "really small" compared to Wild Rice's 40s
-The 2F is a boat anchor
-Oh yeah, Wild Rice is a machine that works ridiculously well, and is very well thought-out and keeps a lot of that cool old retro style. I love those LEDs in the chrome bezels, I should have gotten a picture.
