Never had an issue in snow. Recently pulled a trailer with a Dodge dually (CGVW was 19,992 lbs on the scale) on it over the pass in 12-16" of snow, chains were required, but as I found out, I don't own a set for 37's . Never had a problem. Now I seriously doubt I would have been able to get moving if I had stopped though.

Still upsetting when you have to put it in 4wd to get out of a parking spot, and the Audi next to you drives away like its nothing

I can only afford one vehicle. Which is why you should've given me a deal on your Dub. Do you still have that? It's one nice red beast. I bet it wouldn't have any trouble getting through the snow.

Ah, but if only I had money, and lived in the northwest. I'll trade you my ZJ for your WJ.

The WJ is going on a serious diet soon. That's all I'm going to say for now.

Here are a few pictures I took this morning before cleaning off my Jeep.












More pics of the snow to come when I get a chance. Oh, and I'll see if I have time to wheel tonight. I hope so. I still haven't heard anything about the arrival of my new tires.

More snow fun. Here are some pics. I gave the Jeep a photo shoot really. It's kind of sad as I don't have anyone who could take pictures for me as I wheeled. Ah well, it's still fun. I went on a rampage and tore it up. The Jeep is still intact, but I think I scared myself a few times. There were places you couldn't see the terrain change under the snow. It'd drop off a foot or suddenly rise up. LOL I wasn't going more than 20mph at any time, but it got interesting.

And for your viewing pleasure, or perhaps just my future reminiscing...







A shot of the new tires, er, one tire. I was hoping to get a better pic so you could see the tread with snow and mud. Good tires, these Hankooks. Awesome really.





A perspective just down a hill from the Jeep. You can't really tell that it rises up in front of me. I hate how such things like depth and scale are lost in 2 dimensional pictures.



That is all for now. Here's hoping for more snow!

So Brian, did you ever get any snow?

Sorry to hear you're so low on the snow this year, Roger. Maybe you'll still have some before winter is done with.
I'm hoping for more myself. It's never enough. LOL I'm the only one in my town that I know of who likes the snow. Pansies.

Yep, we got about 5" but none stuck to the road. But there was plenty of snow to make it a nice powder day in the back country.

I went a little bit early this morning with my boss on the shop snowmobiles but only did 2 runs because of the avalanche danger. They stayed out and I came back in. Didn't want to get killed in avalanche.
