I was thinking about getting a new truck. I just moved to Marquette, MI, and they get about fourteen feet (yes, feet) of snow a year. Should I look for something that is four wheel drive, or will a two wheeler be fine with snow tires/chains? Thanks!
About that 14 feet of snow…. It doesn’t all happen at once, and the city, county and state all operate snow plows to keep the roads clear during the winter. I lived in Michigan for a couple of years and my only transportation was a rear-wheel drive muscle car with street tires. Never had a problem getting where I needed to go.
A standard 2-wheel drive pickup truck should do fine if you fit it with some good quality winter tires, and keep about 6-8 loaded sand bags in the bed, placed between the wheel wells.
