I've got a diesel and get about 900 - 1000 miles per tank; she only gets 6 mpg on a good day too. Makes me appreciate 16 mpg.

You've only gotten lucky! In my travels and in the years I've lived up north, I've seen multitudes of four wheel drives spin off icy roads. On icy roads, four wheel drive is of little help; except to get you out of the ditch when you spin off the road: if you don't flip from high center of gravity. I seen a Jeep, just last week, spin on an icy bridge and slam into the concrete wall. Don't be to cocky on icy roads.

One time in the snow I spun out and hit a concrete wall. Then it downed on me I'm in a jeep so I drove over the concrete wall.

Spinning meaning no traction, at least that's what I would think.

If you have four wheels spinning you have no control of what direction you want to go in. If just the back spun then you still have some control in the front, and by spinning I mean on traction not what wheels have power to them.
