Lets see your jeep making its own parking space in the winter. As we all know some of the best parking spaces are accessable by jeep only

You may want to gets some friends together, head to the woods, a go wheeling for real. Mall safaris are ok for picture ops, but nut a recommended training ground.

A buddy parked her here, then posed.
This is a little cafe at the bottom of a ski run that you can only reach by snowmobile or skis.

I drive them on the roads all the time. I'm about 8km from the really good stomping grounds and have to get there on the asphalt roads.
The front tracks have a hydraulic ram thats tied in to my steering, it pushes down on one set of boggies in the center of the bottom of the track that cause the front and rear of the track to raise...this minimizes the area in contact with the road for steering when stopped.
I switch it off when moving...no need.
I am still considering Hydro assist...will help when the lockers are on.
