ive ripped mine in 2-3 ft of snow with 285/55/20 Nitto Dune Grappler E Load 5ply tires they are heavy tires but indestructible Awd drifting up snow covered mountain roads going into Rangeley Maine with a Trailer and 2 SnowMobiles thing goes any where you want with the right traction tires way better then any switchable 4x4 Z71
Luckily it doesn't snow where I live. Sand on the other hand is abundant here. The truck is a bit to heavy for sand unless you come in at high speeds or have bigger diameter tires. I bet this thing woild be a blast in the drt or moderate mud. I'll keep mine for the road only though.
