First snow in the truck.

We FINALLY got some snow in KC, it wasnt much but enough to cause traffic issues this morning. Before I got the truck I had a 2007 Ford Taurus, There are several spots that, when even wet in the car, I would fishtail, however in the truck, I didnt even slow down and had NO issues.

I fishtailed it once during lunch today but thats because I had a chevy pickup in front of me showing off, so I had to one up him lol.

I love this truck.

You had some garbage tires on that Taurus then. Rangers suck in the snow in 2wd compared to a fwd car.

My dad has never had an issue in his 98 2wd ranger either.

I have had 3 sets of tires on that car and all of them sucked. I had goodyears, bf goodwrench, and I forget the other one but I only run good tires on my vehicles. My sister has an 05 taurus and runs the same tires with out issues. I think the car was just a pos imo lol. Had to have 5 alignments in 3 years on that thing.
