When I change lanes 50 mph or higher on roads that have snow between the lanes, it feels like the truck wants to spin out. Scares the hell out of passengers.I just bought it so I have been driving at 50 or lower on snow roads.

2003 Ford Explorer Question: Sways when changing lanes

It is with caution that any driver with any vehicle -- 4x4 or not -- should change lanes with snow between the lanes. No vehicle would be immune to a possible loss of control under those circumstances. Using caution with your speed and maneuvers is imperative.

I have two million logged miles in tractor trailers and another million out of log. So it is not the driver. Thanks anyway!

Not saying it's the driver. Not placing blame. Snow is an unavoidable slick surface. It is what it is.

From people I talk to it seems this may be an inherent problem for short wheelbase SUV's.

Already changed the tires. Very little difference.
Next time I am in Texas I will drop by.
It's only a little over 2,000 miles one-way!
But I do like the weather.
