It will be interesting to see how the painted snowflakes look with the new tires. Did you try to match the Trooper paint or go with a contrast? I have a set of snowflakes that I plan on refinishing myself but have not decided if I want the new look or painted.
I put one in my Trooper last fall and used the heck out of it during October's deer hunt. It worked extremely well! I used dino oil instead of the synthetic stuff, I have been told the synthetic is just to slick for the clutches, squatch told me that. I changed the traction characteristics a bit in snow and ice but I adapted and would not have it any other way now.
Got the hood opened over the weekend. Fuse box, power steering and brake reservoir are smashed, surprisingly didnt damage the Rodeo MAF/upper airbox. Went ahead and pulled the headlights and grill to keep them safe from any possible damage.
Got my eyes open for anything but around here if it aint 'Big 3' or Nissan/Toyota its ignored/trashed.
