Default "polar vortex" fun (w/pics & vid)

So I haven't gotten around to uploading these till now but better late than never!

My buddies and I decided to hit up a secluded parking lot to have a little snow day fun with the trucks after the polar vortex had layed down 12"-16" on us.

I was first to arrive so I decided to kick things off in an area that had been semi-plowed:



Finally everyone else showed up and we dove into the deeper stuff. Even talked one of our fwd friends into trying it...which as you can see didn't end well for him


Here are the two trucks:

Mine is stock height. His Tacoma has Fuel wheels and I believe 33" Dick Cepek tires and a Borla muffler.

Here's a vid of the Tacoma getting stuck briefly and me rubbing it in!! (sorry for the crappy quality, it was my friends iPhone)


The Ram was an absolute beast and even with the stock tires didn't get stuck once! Just got my Bilstein front, Fox rear's, and TGC spacer in so the next time should be even better

Nice!!! That's what we should all call it from now on….. Instead of doing donuts in the snow … it's called laying down a polar vortex

The most recent snow storm we had here in VA I did a few … polar vortex's in the walmart parking lot… the polar vortex'ed around a lost forgotten shopping cart as the cart guys were laughing at me. No video tho, then again I had my wife screaming at me the entire time "LET ME OUT" LOL ram life
