any first year snow jeepers?

So CT just got hit with like 14" of snow and this was the first time I got to see how my 5.9 ZJ did in the snow... and it did GREAT! It is a big change from a front wheel drive mazda 6 that i had last winter. Did anyone else get to have fun in their jeeps for the first time?

the 4x4 chevys are good... the awd ones suck (i.e. eqinox) the power gets transfered to all 4 wheels 1 at a time so you basically have a 1x4 lol

I had fun. Went out last night then tried to get out and had a hard time getting through the snow that was up to my bumper on my 4.5" lifted XJ.

First time driving in the snow period. When I was driving around there was maybe 6'' on the road and 2WD could leave you in a ditch real quick but in 4WD I was unstoppable(on the roads). Me and a friend were the only ones cruising around the streets until we met up at the spot where we went sledding and were greeted by another Jeep
About 16-18'' fell total

Got 30 inches in my area, the thing was like a tank. (33's with a 4 inch lift) It just blasted through everything. Good times!

2nd year in the snow here. I got totally punked by the snow last night though. My city had (maybe still has?) a stretch of back highway that was unplowed... so naturally my friend and I thought we were awesome enough to wheel right on through it. I made it about halfway down the stretch before a snowdrift got the best of me and I lost traction completely lol. A good half hour of screwing around and I was finally able to get out. Kind of embarrassing but it was still pretty fun

Getting stuck is part of wheeling in the snow. That's why its a good idea to be with a group and carry tow straps. Less time stuck, more time getting stuck . . .

First time with my yj this year in CT. My tires are crap but I still 4x4ed everywhere lol. There is no better feeling than chugging up a hill covered in snow. Not sure how much we got but it was enough to shut down my work, which im told never happens it was craptastic out there yesterday!
