The wife's 4.7l HO WJ will get pretty silly in the rain. It's pretty uncontrollable when all 4 tires are spinning, literally all 4 tires. (Quadra-Drive)

Mines terrible when it comes to rain. every exit, round about, left turns. it's definitely fun but I feel like I'll get pulled over soon

When you find two other limiteds on the way to work so you pull into the third lane and fly in formation

Other two jeeps were clueless methinks. Both middle aged dudes and they didn't even look over once. Lost in their own little commute world

Pulling into the road with my morning coffee, at the edge of traction, in 4wd V8 style. Looking in the mirror hundreds of yards away and the Liberty behind me hasn't even edged up to the street yet. Check the speedo... Let off the gas!
Low windshield washer comes on.
