My Bronco II is a beast in snow

Postby joeyy » Sun Feb 07, 2010 9:55 pm

I got an 87 2.9L Eddie Bauer and this thing loves the snow. I dont got any pictures but I'd like too. This thing is justa total beast in snow. It goes anywhere. I do have studded tires in the rear and chains on the front but still this thing puts full size truck to shame. It will go right through 3 feet of snow. I love this truck so much. i dont even have 235's on it yet. i still got the 205's on it until this summer when I can offord to put bigger tires on and a lift. I'll be sure to upload some pics at some point. Just wanted to brag about it, I know my brothers Chevy cant do what I do.

Yep, Bronco II's are great in the snow right out of the box. Get the right tires at 2-4 psi, and you'll make everyone look silly. Now give us our snow back. The trees and flowers are blooming on the left coast.

I grew up in in snow country and know about letting some air out of the tires for better traction but isn't 2-4 psi rather low?

Bigger tires may be better in the mud but not in the snow. I think 235's would be about the biggest I'd go for snow.

I suspect I'll get a lot of negative comments. Just keep it friendly.

This debate is opinion based. I have had 205s, 235s, 30", and 33" and I would say easily 33s were the best in the deep snow with about 8psi. But thats my personal opinion.

It depends on the type of snow too.

When I drove long haul I hated 'bobtailing' because it was like driving a rollerskate. Without a loaded trailer the tractor didn't have enough weight for the amount of rubber on the road. Just a little tap on the brakes would lock them up.
