What is your winter beater?

Post up some pics and the tires you have on it too.

My two winters cars are as follows.

1995 acura integra with firestone winterforce studded tires for ice and light snow

and a 2004 F150 for deep snow when 4wd is needed

1988 Jeep Wrangler YJ. The car still gets driven on the nice days but this is the main DD and the only rig that will see snow use.

It now has a 5.3L, 4L60E, Atlas transfer case and a whole ton of other stuff done to it. This is an older photo but I figured I would go with the winter theme

I actually love this truck. It bumped my G8 from a 'summer' vehicle to a 'summer weekend' vehicle.
