Headed to Almont, CO over Thanksgiving. Going just to get away for a week and do some off tossing in the Rubi. Never been to CO this time of year. Should I bring a set of snow chains or are the roads/weather usually ok to not have them till later?
ive been in places where I did need chains, never on the road in my jeep, and if you've got a rubi you'll be fine on roads, just get good tires and drive cautiously. I bring mine with me on EVERY off road excursion. but most would say I over pack.
I put spacers on my JK specifically so I could run chains with the stock tires. Chains aren't just to help you get going ... they also help you stop. Think about it - everybody's got 4 wheel braking. It's not the deep stuff you're worried about. When you are driving through mountain passes on a sheet of ice with sheer dropoffs to the side where your momentum is taking you ... I got two words - v bar.
