With any land cruiser, you switch the objective of trying to float, to just trying to dig all the way down to dirt and power through

They really are cheating once you put the tracks on them. I saw one in the snow one time and it was just silly capable.

Personally, I really want a snow bike

Defiantly thought of a FJ60 but they are like collector items now you can barley touch a rust bucket for <5k. A 4runner or cherokee is more likely in the picture.

Weird, a few years ago, my mom had one with a blown head gaskit. No body would take it for $500, so it went off to pick and pull...
