Redditor’s F-150 Finds a Winter Wonderland in Washington
While other trucks might need the full lock to tackle the snow, one Redditor’s F-150 easily forges a path while in 4A.
There’s lots of fun to be had with an F-150, no matter the conditions. Quarter-miles, highways, muddy roads, desert trails, the truck handles all with aplomb.
And that includes the snowy roads of Western Washington, where Redditor tikipunch and his F-150 have found a winter wonderland that he says has been “an absolute dream” to drive.
And why is that? Because unlike most other trucks that need to be in 4H to traverse the snow, his F-150 cruises on by in 4A with no strain the drivetrain and steering. One Redditor, Grover70, wondered if tikipunch experienced any fishtailing in 4A. Tikipunch had this to say:
“Really no fish tailing when 4A is on. I even tried. It was more sliding when doing a sharp turn just because the road was compact snow so really no traction. Other than that I was cruising with no issues in snow and slush.”
Other Redditors chimed in, praising the F-150’s ability to handle the winter conditions, while suggesting the owner swap on some winter tires for better grip and easily escaping less-attentive drivers should the need arise. Another Redditor, juiceboxzero, adds that he keeps 360 pounds of sand in the bed of his F-150, providing all the traction the truck needs while never having to shift to 4H even once.
So, if your friends aren’t already in an F-150, throw this bit of information in your sales pitch; you might just get a convert or two.
