I have. I lived in Alaska for 12 years, Fort Drum NY for 6, and I can tell you knowing how to drive in it makes more difference than whether you have LSD or not. I drove a RWD pickup in Alaska with no issues. Also a Honda Civic in NY (snow belt, 6 feet in one night...ugh).

As a matter of fact I have:








Been to that same beach in 2 different 4G rams, one with no LSD and this one with. I have been driving both on and off road, on race tracks and trails, snow, ice, beaches, combat, sandy desert, you name it...and not ONCE have I NEEDED an LSD. Does it come in handy? Yes, sometimes...no denying that. But if you drive like a normal every day person, on normal every day roads, you will never need it...even in snow and ice.
