I took my two kids up to Snoqualmie Pass, up the Hyak Road. I went there last week with my Subaru and ran into 6 inches of really hard pack snow. This week, there was an additional 12+ inches of fresh snow on top. Turns out, the Jeep does MUCH better with 15 lbs of air in the 33s, and SUPER MUCH better with 10 lbs. My tires are the Goodyear Duratracs. I read a review about them in 4wheeler magazine that rated them a 4 out of 4 in the snow. I would definitely agree. Went thru the snowmobile tracks like nothing. Point and shoot.
I stopped under the freeway over pass on the way back out to stay out of hte snow while airing back down. Probably 50 cars drove past and ignored my Jeep with the hood up. 2 out of 2 of the Jeeps that drove past stopped to ask if we were alright. One of them even circled back to ask. Good shit.
All I could find was one from behind the dash. This was taken on Saturday on a trip with the local jeep club in western Colorado. We got caught in a little snow flurry around lunch and then blizzard like conditions on the highway back home from Gateway.
Great pic! I like your Evans Creek video too. It's been over 16 years since I've been to Evans after I moved to Eastern WA. I miss it, even though I was wheeling a Toyota back then. Yep, I said the T-word.
I noticed your zip-tied license plate. Do you know that maglite flashlight clips fit perfectly on your roller fairlead? $6 bux. Just bolt them to your license plate. You can run no plate while wheeling and still keep the WSP happy on the way home. They've lasted years longer than my first winch.
We pulled my friend in a jet ski tube behind mine. We gave up shortly after because snow was getting thrown into his face from the tube and he couldn't take the cold lol. We just had a little drifting session after that!
