2wd TB in snow?

How does a 2wd LS EXT do in snow, anyone got any reports? Might be moving to Tennessee, wondering what the best combo is for tires, etc.

does tennessee even get all that much snow?

here in nj we get a solid amount and i went to penn state last year as well so iv seen a good amount of the white stuff, i have used 4wd under certain circumstances but the truk holds its own well in the snow in 2wd...and i have 3.42s non-g80 LS non-ext...as an ext youll have more weight over your tires in the back, thatl give you more traction aswell...

What little snow they get down there won't give you any trouble.

These things actually do well in 2WD in snow, especially if you have the G80.

This is my 4th winter here in Denver the first year I owned a 2002 2wd Trailblazer without traction control. It SUCKED!....

In March 2006 I traded in the 2002 for the 2007 also a 2wd but this one has traction control and it ROCKS! It's not 4wd by no means but man it's a world fo difference. I used to spin wheels at lights just to get across an intersection. Not with the traction control I scoot right along. The best part is if I want to "goof" off I can turn it off and have fun.

Also Tires can also make a world of difference, I have friends with 20's and 22" wheels that should be put up for the winter season.

While we're on the topic of rims , what rims would look good on an EXT dark metallic green TB? I have seen some good American Racing rims, but some of them are a little high priced. Anybody got any good suggestions?
