But yes, all terrains are going to be better on packed snow than mud terrains - MTs have little to no siping. In deep snow, the muds should churn through just fine.

Still, definitely sounds like your Jeep has issues. My Quadradrive system is beyond impressive in snow - deep or packed.
My MTs did awesome, I only broke loose when I wanted to.

Agreed. I have BF Goodrich's A/Ts (8 ply) and they were a beast. Went on the backroads with 14" + and it handled great. I also had the Kelly Safari TSRs and they handled great too. I dont know which of the two tires I like more.

I run Michelin Cross Terrains year round. No problems at all.

Got to have some fun I the snow today, little over 13 inches here. WJ did great on BFG all terrains despite a failing 4wd system (even after fluid change) back end would come out a bit, just made it more exciting ha.

What? Blasphemy!

You need to get your jeep checked out then. I'm also from WI and in a recent snow storm I took a (far out of town, and tight radius) roundabout at 17mph! No slip! 4 times around! I could have gone more, but my point was proven...

Explorer....sad face.....

There's the right way, there's the wrong way, and then there's MY way, which is like the wrong way, only faster.

Then something is wrong with it.

My qudra-tracII is a snowmobile with rubber tires. Grammys limited with qudradrive is so far unstoppable.
