Jeeping in the Dolomites, Italy

The last 4 days we tested the new Rubicon in several tours through the Dolomites in Canazei and surrounding.
We were at the passes driving hundreds of twisting roads.
Partly there is more than 1 meter of snow.
There are some passes closed and all of the offroad trails too.
But I think it is no prob for us, we enjoy our vacation, the excellent Italian food, and the beautiful nature here.

It is a CRD
torque 460 Nm
It works!
Yes my Jeep is nearly stock, but I love it.
Today we drove a trail, 4 of 5 rated...I read 5 is nearly "Kamikaze".
Uphill my Rubi only needed 2WD
Downhill I took 4WD-low. It was more comfortable than 4WD because I don't need the brake so often.
I was surprised about the ability of my Rubi.
