Snow Jeepin?

I keep hearing that Jeeps are amazing in the snow, and there's a whole thread in the TJ forum where folks are talking about how they pull so many people out of ditches, etc.

What makes a Jeep so good in the snow, and how can something so light pull heavier vehicles out of ditches?

The answer to why a Wrangler is so good in the snow is easy. Get your title. Look at it closely. There are 4 letters that are of importance to this question. They are the letters J, E, and P. E is used twice. Put them together in the correct order, and they spell JEEP!!!

It may have something to do with wheelbase, I don't know. Whatever it is, it works. I pulled almost a dozen stuck vehicles out of being stuck last winter alone. Hopefully I'll do it again this year.

It is more than just the word " JEEP " . You are correct; pulling out a much heavier vehicle is difficult to say the least. Most Jeep owners have improved their Jeeps capabilities by adding aggressive tires, traction aiding devises (lockers) and or winches. I have pulled out much heavier rigs than my Jeep by anchoring myself to a tree, another jeep/truck, or by just digging my tires into the snow/mud and placing large rocks/limbs in front of my tires and then winching the stuck rig out. The laws of physics still apply no matter what you drive.
