Default Tulsa Blizzard of 2011 - Toyota vs. Jeep

I've got a few friends with Jeeps, but I've never had to get one of
them to pull my 4x4 Tacoma out of a sticky situation. Last week,
after Tulsa was hit with a second round of snow, making our total on
the ground around 21", though, I had to pull out a Jeep. I took great
pride in this, and here's a link to the photographic evidence.

might pull me out of a jam some day, but until then, I'm going to
enjoy this.

About 6 years ago I pulled a F350 dually out with my 87 4runner. The guy
seemed a little embarrassed that a little Jap 4 cylinder had to jank a
big bad diesel out.

My 91 4runner that I'm driving this winter sure eats up the snow. I had
to get through 20" earlier this winter to get to a jobsite. Thankfully,
it was fresh light snow, but I didn't even spin a tire.

Conversely, my Toyota 6 cylinder pickup was constantly getting
stuck in the sand of Death Valley, East Mojave Desert, Amargosa
Desert, Great Basin Desert, Sonoran Desert, and Black Rock Desert.
The wheels are narrow and small, and they sink. I took to carrying
four 2x12 wood planks to drive on crossing arroyos.
