Do SRW's drive better than DRW's in the snow?? I have never had to drive in snow but might be going to MI or OH. If I do should I take our SRW truck?? This has me thinking now....

The only other dually we saw in the snow was a four wheel drive with aggressive tires. The street tires (Michelin's) on our truck filled up with snow immediately, and spun every chance they got. Do it again I would take the SRW.

I had a DRW and it would get stuck very easily. If I ever get another one it will have 4 wheel drive with positraction in the rear.

You need 4WD with either of them. My dually has a limited slip rear and is still worthless in the snow without 4WD turned on. A single wheel is only slightly better. Not good. 4WD is a must if you have a lot of snow in your path.

I have driven my SRW 2DW PSD in a couple major storms, and it does real well with aggressive tires on it. 4WD would be nicer I guess, but the brain behind the go pedal has more to do with it than the actual vehicle.. On our trip last week the other vehicle trying to run with us was a 4WD and he put it in a ditch...
