Lifted ram gets me home in blizzard

Only 3 inch lift and 35 trail grapplers but got me home in the blizzard. Fun passing all those abandoned snow bound cars. Why drive it when you can RAM IT !

Glad you made it home man. I'm guessing the trail grapplers do ok in the snow?

Great in deep snow. Not great on the beach. They dig in. Really have to air down

Riverhead. No flooding. The south shore got hammered. Might not be much beach left for the summer

Right on, some of my family lived there many years ago! My grandparents lived in Baldwin for along time, my mom and her siblings grew up there.

I have 295/65r20 on bilstiens @2.1. They come out to be 35"x12.0". They only rub the sway bar in the front. And they rub the inner fender on the rear when you flex it out. Mine rub bad in the real when I'm getting stupid upstate. This is with the stock 20x9 wheels. With a proper offset wheel and a body lift you should be fine. A body lift is my next mod.
