Well, that is something I guess I'm gonna find out. I just got some brand new REVO2s put on Thursday night and I really don't feel like shoveling my driveway. I think the hardest part is going to be getting out of my garage. If I can make it out of the garage I'm pretty confident I can power through anything else (I do have a 6 ton hand winch in the bed though just in case)

yeah probably not. have fun getting stuck though.

in 2ft. literally 2ft 24inches. no. your stock frontier will get stuck.
but with the roads are semi clear of at least a foot you should be fine.


i dont know what you think you drive. also depends on the snow. if its a dry snow without much weight you might. wet. not a chance in hell.
but i dont think you can anyway. do you realize how deep 2ft is? how the hell did you get your trucks door open?

If its 2ft of wet snow compacts pretty fast, and if the pavement is wet/slushy below the snow, he can.

If its 2 ft of wet snow and frozen or wet/compacted slush, maybe and probably get stuck pretty easy.

Dry, eww. Usually when its dry, you have good winds to keep it dry and it compacts it. You also won't sink to the bottom in dry snow if you are flying along, but if you get your tires spinning you can sink down farther and be screwed. Imo, the dry snow towards the bottom is like driving on sand. You start to dig yourself to the bottom and then your on your frame.

Revo 2's have the best deep snow traction rating on tirerack.com when compared to all other brands of all terrain tires, one of the reasons I like them.

let your tires down to 12 lbs and go right over it. If it feels like your sinking back into the garage, move over a little and repeat until you pack a road out your driveway. I have run mine in snow so deep it was up to my waist when I got out.

We have some tough snow here - only about 12-14" but 1st layer is about 2 inches dry powder and 1inch crust (been on ground for 7weeks from -35 t0 40 above) then another two inches of dry powder and 1 inch crust and about 6-8 inches of new fairly wet snow - takes alot of power to break the crusts and then it is just like sand, doesn't pack, just shifts around - time for chains (but no room on the stock Equator) so use my '84 Ramcharger, dubbed 'little sherman'.

I ran rear off road chains on my stock nismo frontier. That is with 32" tires. Never had a problem, just make sure you have no loose ends:laugh:

Well I wimped out after getting the garage door open and actually seeing how much snow there was...the drifts actually made the depth closer to 3 feet. I shoveled half the driveway tonite and will do the rest tommorow. I'll try to post some pics then

There is a lot a snow out there. Moving around was no problem till we drove the truck over a snow bank.

Two feet of "FRESH" snow is not a problem with our big tires. You have to be a little more aggressive with the throttle on the up hill grades. Cleaning up is a pain in the a$$.....

I do have to say, I love the wheel impression in the snow!! That is a huge snow bank.

I live in Ohio and we only got a few inches, but when I left work this morning the highway looked untouched by a snow plow. My truck did great. As I was cruising along at 40, I passed a lot of FWD cars in the ditch.

That is some good snow there. It looks just packed to all hell, that stuff can be a nightmare for any vehicle.

49 deg today in the mile high city lol and VA / NOVA is in deep! That weather map is hilarious, I'd already have a case in the refrigerator.

mike, we got about 24 inches here in maryland and it was a bit*h to clean up. i didn't take the truck out but my dad's f150 did awesome in the snow, went through snow up past the step rails in his truck with no problems. my truck would of deff. struggled due to my worn out STOCK crap. i do look forward to go out and find somewhere to play in tomorrow though.

Here are some "event" pictures. The REVO2s are really nice in the snow. Found some fairly deep snow (7-8 inches) to test performance out, no issues whatsoever with truck. I got to say, this Frontier is the first truck I have ever had but I am really impressed. It seems to be a fully capable off-road vehicle. I can't imagine the performance that some of you guys must have with tire and suspension upgrades. Maybe all late model trucks are this good, I dunno, but, in the 4 years I've had her I have never ever had any performance issues. Didn't even need 4x4 for most of the time. Now another 48 hours until the next event...were supposed to get more on Tuesday.
