Really the only thing that would hinder the SS version is the wider tires. They will tend to ride on top of the snow, instead of digging into it. Otherwise, unless you have the 2wd version, the AWD should be OK.

Now, if you have a set of steel winter rims and narrow snow tires for it, now that would go through snow as well as the standard TB, IMO.:yes:

have steel wheels with 245/70/17 all season the truck is boring to drive in the snow. traction is perfect in the snow, with traction control off when the truck finally loses traction and starts to fish tail Stabilitrac takes over and the truck straights out instantly:(

Thats why i always drive with the Stabilitrac off if I want to have fun! I live in Maine (but not a Mainer) and find that it pushes in the corners excessively and like someone else said, it rides on top of the snow. Not the best but better that any two wheel drive. Snow tires and this thing would be great but only one more winter then moving to JAX. :woot:

I have the Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow on my AWD and haven't had any trouble... even considering this year has been particularily snowy for us. You do have to use common sense in terms of not stomping on the gas peddle, but compared to the LS 4x4 we had, the SS does prety well.
