What's up? I just purchased my first wrangler...a 1991 YJ 4.0L with 3" lift, 33x12.50 w/ ProComps.
That being said, I'm used to driving in the snow in my old truck... I snow ski a lot and will want to be driving the YJ when it snows. I wanted some feedback on how these things typically do in the snow. I'll be running the hard top in the winter.
haha yeah i have some fun in my tj when is snows. as long as it is in 4wd when the streets are covered, you should be dandy. Mine does like to drift in 2wd with my 32's, but its easy to control.

They go great in the snow, even with 33 inch tires.

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.
Jeeps are great in the snow. Watch out for understeer if in 4WD. Also, with the short wheelbase, if you lose traction, they can get turned around in a hurry, and they don't recover well. As long as you don't think 4WD means incincible, you'll do fine.
