First snow!'

Today has been one of the better snows that we have seen in my area of NC in the last few years and was a great time in my jeep! Got new tires last week and they went great in the snow. I know a lot of people dislike traction control (or the lack of the ability to completely disable it) but I had nearly zero slipping with it and really didn't use 4wd on completely covered roads. It was nice to drive around with that peace of mind! Just wanted to share how impressed I was with this awesome machine. Jeep on guys and gals!

Nice! Also a great picture! At least sounds like you were sensible and we didn't get another "There were 2 snowflakes so I put it in 4LO and it clunks when it turns" post. A Wrangler is fully capable (as are ahem most cars on the road lol!) in "some" snow in plain ole 2WD, just remembering that it is a RWD and driving appropriately. Also 4WD tends to make some folks overconfident - they focus more on the mechanicals to save them than on the good old tried and true free option of....driver skill and paying attention lol! The Jeep will tell you when you need to engage 4WD.

Glad you had fun!

First time driving in the snow with her this morning, threw her into 4WD she loves it! What 8 inches of snow?

Got my first jeep wake/honk back today by an old school YJ truckin threw the snow going the opposite direction.

(my boss thinks I was "shoveling" but I was waiting for there to be more snow on the ground) lol

You can have the +60 inches we've had here so far...

I feel for you man. Just moved from Chicago down south and I was there this December for a few weeks. You forget what cold really is until you go to the Midwest. Heard it's supposed to warm up next week for you guys though.

Past couple if days in NC have dumped a lot of snow. First real opportunity to test the JK in snow. Take it in sand all the time.

I'm good with the 2 days of snow and then it being in the 60s next week! I couldn't imagine having it all the time.

Or send it out east. We've had almost 50 and 20 more coming with this storm, but it's still not enough. My normally 5hour drive will be a long one tomorrow
