let me rephrase that so you don't think i'm dumping the clutch to stop. I use a combo of engine rpms and intermintent brakes to get the Jeep to slow. During snow, more engine than brakes, during summer more brakes. Plus I think its more fun to drive in snow (except white out conditions). One of the best ways to learn how to drive in the snow is go to an empty parking lot. Have at it, do some donuts, practice sliding and stopping. Its fun and you get a feel for what your vehicle is going to do under those conditions. Once you have mastered the parking lot, I have a mud track where I go to practice by never using the brakes and turning under full throttle (2wd). Fun fun fun. IMHO -suprises make you panic, and panic is bad, I've seen some of my friends freak out when they started to slide and did the exact opposite of what they were supposed to do. Just my 2 cents-
