Not a pinz, but heavier...we had a very bad ice storm several years ago here in Georgia. I had my M35A2 out in it to rescue folks and such. I ran chains on the front and rear axle. I was able to reliably accelerate and brake as well as recover stuck vehicles.

Given the speeds, less thant 30mph it was a VERY good setup and fun if not bumpy to ride around in. 6wd was not needed except for when I had a semi-tractor to pull out of a stuck spot.
