Been out three times so far......not in the Jeep yet......slicker than spit on a doorknob. Chevy 1/2 ton loaded with tools seems to be doing fine, so I KNOW the Jeep will be finer.....2 inches and counting here...

I've been bombing 'round the Naperville/Bolingbrook area all night...good times, when I can get some room to roam. Idiots around here are packed tight as sardines going 20mph. I'd say we got about 3" so far

In elk grove here at work overnight. Very slick out and the LJ would never know it. Even with low tread on the rear tires.

I sure hope all that crap moves out of there over the next couple days...I plan on driving 300 miles to Decatur/Mt Zion tomorrow night/Thursday morning and really hate driving in crappy winter weather...Jeep or not. lol

Well luckily all the nasty rain cleared the roads up nicely. Took me a while to scrape that stuff off my window though! Thick and determined ice it was!
Luckily with the soft top I only has one window to de-ice haha

I couldn't wait for the first snow to try out my new to me TJ. I have new tires so I had good traction on ice and the little bit of snow we had. They are Kumho AT's 31x10.5

I would like to play around in 6 inches or so.

We got a decent amount last night, I was out about 9pm for the first time in my newly purchased '97 and I gotta say I was pretty impressed. Old but still functional.
