Thanks for all your help and enthusiasm. It's contagious. The snow's not real deep, but at the street end of my driveway there's a rather steep incline to the pavement. Right now it's all ice. With my Tacoma, I'd have to put it in 4wd just to get it onto the pavement and then shift back out. With the RAV,there's no slippage, even from a dead stop. It's snowing like crazy right now, so I guess I'll get a good chance to try it out tomorrow.
