I can go through lots of snow with the Focus. Problem I have is it likes to sit on top of it. So when I spin it digs down an there I am sitting on top going no where. Been thinking of making a steel airdam/plow to push the snow away and give me another inch or so under the car. It'd make things much easier.
Look ugly as all hell though, not that I care.
Don't "think outside the box".
There is no box.
Do it correct, or do it twice.
