This Jeep is awesome!

I may have accidentally went offroading this afternoon in my completely stock WK (the lift is still in the boxes riding around in the back) and was very happily surprised. The road had patches of snow that I would have been afraid to attempt in my 4.0 ZJ (slightly lifted with 31 M/Ts)...drove right over it with absolutely no problem. Hemi/QDII combo is fantastic! I am almost thinking I don't need a lift and tires now...but then again what fun would that be? (Sorry no proof of the snow )

I love mine, too. As unfortunate as it is to have snow this time of year, I had the chance yesterday to see how it did with an inch of ice/slush covered by several inches of snow. I pulled out of the driveway and just put the hammer down and it took off like it was on dry pavement. Awesome machine.

Good tires never hurt. Ive left my suspension stock for now just because it rides so nice and offroads so well as is.

Piddling snow for us this year, typical. We are into Spring and cutting grass now. Always next year but I can wait. Time for sunshine, warm weather, pretty girls, and fast cars. No particular order. Oh, forgot the staples of life; gas, bait, ice. Jeeps are twelve month machines.

I wouldn't really say they are good tires....Goodyear Fortera HL don't really sound like good tires to me. I will attribute all success to Jeeps being awesome

I meant good tires help the jeep. It does well totally stock but a decent all terrain really changes its off road ability.
