Ha that's crazy. Winter hasn't hit Florida yet. It was 75 degrees today and it was 80 yesterday. It was so nice I decided to take the top down and the doors off. B)

Still waiting for the snow to come. Supposed to get anywhere from 7"-14". That means we'll get a dusting.

Be really careful you don't develop Jeep balls. You know, that invinceable feeling you can conquer anything at any speed. Stopping is still a huge issue... 4WD or not.

Be careful out there.

MOz,
Yeah i always keep in mind that i have to be able to stop. I only get those jeep balls when nobody is around and i have nothing to hit but a snow bank.
I found that downshifting is a art form but well worth knowing how to do

Dealing with snow is the reason I own a Jeep :-) In the winter I'd never get up my driveway without 4WD and New England winters are sure to bring plenty of snow. Looks like we're getting our first real storm later today...
