Man!
That's EXACTLY what it's beenn doing here for the past 3 days. There's a couple threads around on first winters in Jeep. I think I started one too, this year, or I added to my own thread about shifting into 4wd.

I can easily see why I've always been swearing at all the 4WD's that blow passed me on the highway and stuff!!

I even went so far as act like a nut and purposely plowed through a snowback my first day driving on some REAL snow!! Had to test the ability to back itself out of a hole. Jeep walked right out it.

Still hate this crap with a passion though!!

There is nothing like plowing through 4 foot snow drifts with the jeep and not being able to see anything until the foot of snow blows off the hood. I forgot how much fun montana could be.

We got 15 inches in the last 3 days. I wish my Jeep wasn't in the shop, the rental Focus isn't cutting it.

i enjoy the jeep in the snow too.

funny story...

driveways here are on an incline.

neighbor was jacking around in the snowbanks in his fwd ford escape. got a bunch of snow packed in the rear wheels, and it froze up his abs sensors.... so the rear wheels locked up.

i hear tires spinning from my living room, and walk outside to see my other neighbor who has a huge dodge ram, lifted, on 32s (2wd hahahahha).. attempting to push the ford up the driveway, but he cant get traction either.

they both look at me with puppy dog eyes, so i warm up the old 91 4cyl on stock street tires, pop it in 4lo and gently push the ford up into his driveway.

the dodge guy was just giving me this look like he was waiting for me to comment. i kept it to myself lol.

Can you tell?
