You should have no worries... I have been through a NE winter and awaited new snowfalls with anxious aniticipation! It would take me 2 or 2.5 hours to get to work in this truck! I was having so much fun hunting down unplowed streets and plowing 20' snow angels with the OEM treads. I've got the LE so I have all the electronic goodies, but this thing not only goes well in snow, it also stops great! I was impressed with it's performance over my F150 4x4 that I traded in for it. Very stable and sure-footed.
