That’s awesome! We didn’t get that storm here in northern Virginia sadly but glad you saw some snow, it is winter and all! Hopefully ours is coming, or I get a job in Colorado and won’t have the issue anymoreI got caught in the winter blast in NE Texas last night coming back from a weekend of goose/duck hunting in Arkansas. I ended up doing 20-30 mph on roads that I normally run 75-80 mph on for over four hours, it turned a normal nine hour trip into a 13.5 hour ordeal real quick lol. I have never had to go around so many downed trees and spun out vehicles in my life and I lived in the direct path of the eye of Hurricane Harvey lol. It's crazy how quickly an average winter storm can get out of control in an area that isn't equipped with the gear necessary to properly prep roads prior to such an event.
I was grateful to have such a capable and readily stocked vehicle to get through the weather and tackle the road conditions with ease while so many others were stranded or wrecked out on the side of the road. I have never had the Nitto Ridge Grapplers in snow and ice and after driving them through 5-6 hours of driven heavy, wet snow last night I can honestly say that they work quite well in that mess. My hunting partner who rode with me spent the majority of his life in Maryland and Pennsylvania and even he was blown away by the weather and road conditions.
A few pics taken on main highways along the way last night.
Of course, dynamat is the go-to. I just don’t like how hard they are to remove. Especiall if there is a chance your vehicle will be submerged. That carpet padding Lexus puts in seems to do a pretty good job.Any suggestions on which material to use for insulating and sound dampening and how much to use and where to buy would be much appreciated.
