Took the Armada out to the snow for the first time....

I purchased my Armada about 2 months ago and I've been driving the brains out of it. Finally got a chance to take it out to Mt. Pinos here in Southern Cali and it was a blast

Very nice. I took my Armada out for a few donuts after a big snowfall a couple of weeks back, and was it ever fun! The 4x4 setting allowed the beast to still takeoff with considerable responsiveness - even without winter snow tires. Too bad there was significant lateral slippage and longer stopping distance. (I'll be getting snow -and probably mud - rated tires before the next winter.)

They came in handy though.....well actually I have great snow/hiking boots soo all was safe

I'd definitely get rid of them if I go with a lift.....still debating the route to go.


I was originally set on 24/26 wheels until I met up with Armadeous and his massive Armada (6" lift and 35s)

got me thinking
