And these are the reasons why I'm "that guy", a douche that stores his 4wd truck in the winter. I can buy a beater Grand Cherokee for a grand and ram rod IT through the salt and slop and preserve my tow vehicle. I drop my truck to storage insurance, put plpd on a beater and go! Cheapest time of year for me with drop in insurance premium. I can't put a rocker panel on my truck and paint it to match for a grand, so the beater makes financial sense. What amazes me more than the amount of salt they spread. Is the amount of people that will go plunk down 45,50,55 grand on a Silverado to drive through the crap, or 70,80,90 on a tahoe/yukon/suburban, or 100k on an Escalade.
