    Winter driving...what upgrades should i do?

    Hi guys, winter has come to Drummondville, and i really enjoy driving my merv outside. The only thing is that it is not doing really well in snow. So, i need your suggestions and tips.

    My setup is totally stock, exept for a 26t pinion instead of the stock 28t.

    Thanks!

    You could buy some Sand Paw tires or make some snow chains.

    From I heard, if you go with 4" and more tire size, you need to gear down or flip the tranny to keep everything cool. But only a IR thermometer will give you your answers.
