I see nothing wrong with ripping it up in your 4x4 with one exception. Leave the residential neighborhoods to the residents. I have no respect for anybody who would tear up the streets for little more than showing their own ass.
I live in Texas, and I absolutely love when we get snow. I drive a 3x2/1, and after experiencing a little of the white stuff in my area in mid November, I believe I have one of the safest winter vehicles to be had in the respects of handling and maneuverability. I made the mistake of venturing out in my 71 model Torino, and will never attempt that again. It is virtually uncontrollable. Now I just bundle to the best of my gear's abilities, and trounce around in the Ural.
I avoid other vehicles at all cost. I cut the paths in the fresh powder, and I get my running about done before societal dregs shake off their hangovers enough to get into their 4x4's and show some ass.
After all, it is their insurance that goes up, and not mine.

so I attempted to make a left-hand turn from the one lane I was in, all the while a guy in a 4X4 pickup leaning on his horn. It just makes me wonder if there is some sort of perceived persona that goes along with owning and aggressively driving a 4x4 'big' pickup truck; (Ram tough?).
We concur here, Ram tough, Ford tough, GMC/ Chevy tough it's all a smog intended to make you feel safe.
