trip, no need to explain yourself.. theres no trails where you live.. j/k
I dont have straps either, I dont wheel enough or go to placed I think I would get stuck in.. I plan on buying one but dont want to wast money on a cheap strap either.. FYI ebay sells them for 20 bucks..
It sunny here in CA 73 degree. I put 350miles on my bike yesterday. I almost feel guilty for such great weather in the dead of winter.. But I guess I pay top dollar for the sun living here.. sigh

I mean how do you get stuck when there's not even any snow on the road. And then the brainiac in the truck just keeps pulling him further into the snowbank.
What a comedy of errors.

|tiny terror||Can't wheel without gear. Trail kits can get expensive (though a simple strap is not), but they are an absolute necessity.|

stuff adds up tiny. I want to get a recovery strap but for some reason whenever i want to get one i'm broke.
|01-15-2009 09:43 PM|
|tiny terror||8k posts and no recovery strap? Oh dear.|

|infamousbliss||my wife was in the shower last night and the well froze. haven't unfroze it yet. took tomorrow off to fix it but it's still going to be in the negatives. lucky me. i have a 16inch crawl space under my house and boy does that sound like fun or what?|

|maddmax91||so do any of you guys plow with ur jeeps? i always wanted to but my 4banger would die|

|whiteyj||That just doen't look like fun. While I have to drive three hours to get into the funny white stuff, I enjoy it for an hour or two and then can come back to our nice warm reality.|

|gus54||A couple days ago people were stuck in the road cuz in got about 10" deep before the plow came down. Pretty cool though - I get to go snow wheelin' everyday on my street.|

Record low here today of -19F. I thought my hard top was going to shatter on the way to work it was creaking so badly. Sadly they finally plowed my road so no more playing in the drifts on the way to work. I am just glad the wife has 4wd in her little Tracker too otherwise I would be leaving extra early to take her in everyday. It's no Wrangler but it gets her through the snow ok.
I make a few passes when it gets bad and knock the drifts down as much as I can......usually with my bumper, and then everyone in the sub tries to ride my tracks out.

|ninjaboy76||I hate snow, but having two 4wd vehicles certainly makes it fun. The jeep does pretty good in the snow, but not as good as my big '92 GMC Sierra 4x4. I'm thinking the wieght of the truck helps. With 4wd engaged it doesn't even notice any snow or ice. The jeep can get a little squirrely at times, but is not horrible.|

|B86W05||Thursdays a high of 8 and low of -9 its COLD|
|01-14-2009 10:22 PM|
|afrats||I wish we had snow...well maybe not until I am off the crutches. Snow would be very difficult for me right now. Plus, it would make me want to be in the jeep real bad.|

|Gumpit||Forget him? Where are you? It was 15 here today and Friday will be closer to 0 ..I'm just glad I put a hotter thermostat in my Jeep...What a difference on the heat coming out of the vent.... Randy|

|01-14-2009 06:11 PM|
|infamousbliss||it happens. i went out with my 4 y/o last winter and was traveling some wide snowmobile trails when things got to tight. i had to turn around. as soon as i tried to i buried myself up to the frame cause i got off the packed snow. my buddy came up gave me a tug and i got out. unfortuatley we had to back all the way out of the woods. (about5 miles) yeah i had a neck cramp for a week.|
|01-14-2009 06:01 PM|
was she hot? lol
yeah here in nny (southern canada) its pretty cold. -11 with a -26 windchill tonight. theres been snow on the ground for a few weeks now.
its not too bad once you get used to it. you tend to learn exactly when to switch on the 4hi, and when its just too much fun to keep it off.
at the exit to my neighborhood theres a steep incline you have to drive up to get onto the main road. i purposefully leave 4 feet between the front of my jeep and the car in front of me while waiting at that stop sign, because once its their turn, they will just spin and spin and spin the tires, until they start sliding backwards.
theres been a few times ive slowly gone up beside a 2wd truck and asked if they needed a push lol.
this guy across the street drives a big dodge ram 2wd with huge tires and he thinks itll walk over anything.. but he has to go around the long way because he cant get grip up that incline lol. he has his toolbox full of salt for when he gets stuck.
