Still around...Iowa sucks for 4 wheelen except winter

Havnt posted much here as I have done everything to my Jeep I can. It is around the Quad Cities, Davenport to be exact. Had a great winter cause we had a lot of snow. Hoping for even more this year. One can only hope!!!
Pics of my politically incorrect Jeep. Conservatives love it. Liberals are afraid to say anything and young people dont knw what country the CCCP even was.

Sorry, driving in snow doesn't count as wheeling.

I live in northern Iowa and have snow all winter. People around here all drive in snow just like your pictures everyday for several months. It gets old quickly.

Much as I love a pissing contest...

No you don't. What is in my pictures (20") is HALF your YEARLY average in northern Iowa (40"). You certainly get more than we do...and I'm sure you've had storms like that...but you aren't driving around in 20" unplowed every day for several months. Thats just pure BS.

Settle down bubba. I am not picking a fight. I apologize if it came off that way.

Wasn't dug down to pavement The rear was digging down farther (as you'd expect)...but neither came close to pavement underneath. Actually I didn't end up going much farther than those pics because I couldn't make progress without a) enough speed to float over or b) digging down and turning the thing into a poorly designed plow. I actually think the coolest thing was seeing the skid plate indentations in the snow behind me:

Looks like fun Tim.

Must not have been too cold. The guys watching are not in cold weather gear.
