Well, I did almost buy a Subaru Crosstrek. Their all wheel drive is fantastic and I'd fit right in at the neighborhood coffee shop. :)

I was just like you once. Good things come to those who wait. I have a 2 door Anvil JKR now and it kicks ass. I started shopping in May and I made my purchase in October. I know what you mean about...

Who gives a shit? Do people really do this?

After buying my Anvil Rubicon, I looked two doors down and noticed the neighbor had an Anvil JKU. :beerdrinking: There are Wranglers all over this town.

I think the new Trailhawk is gorgeous and I was going to buy one but got tired of waiting for them to show up. Congrats. It's very nice ride.

I've had a two door Rubicon for about 6 weeks. The ride has grown on me each time. The interior kind of feels like a cockpit.

The second day I owned my Rubicon I drove it down a very very primitive road into a deep desert canyon. I did this because I could. :)

Yeah, I spun out on ice in 2WD the first week I owned it. I have not done that since I was 16. The dealer had the tires inflated to 47psi each! I didn't think to check them. Not too smart on my part....

I can dig it. My Rubicon is my DD and I wanted to give the stock tires a chance before I immediately took them off and took a big hit selling them to get something else even though I love the look of...

I'd say the siping helps but it's not why I was fine. Factory siping and design is way better. I was fine because the tire/vehicle combo is not as bad as the legends make it seem.

In my OP I told readers of this post that my Rubicon did well, great in fact, on packed snowy and patchy iced roads with the stock tires. And I agree, it is fantastic in deep snow too.

Makes sense. It was 5 degrees last night and my tires did well in 4WD high. If the roads are covered I drive around down in high. Works great.

And I'll add, from what I hear, if you get a set of Duratracs, it will be absolutely unstoppable. :rofl:

Not necessarily bad info, some good info in fact, but lighten up a little on the chest pounding. The "if you have to ask you don't need it" attitude is ridiculous. I didn't know if I should get a...

Rubicon 2 Door Snow Performance Thoughts

I know, yet another wrangler in the snow post... I say Rubicon because of the stock mud tires it comes with.

But now that I have had a chance to get out in the snow this morning in my new Rubicon...

So is it still this way in 2014? Why in the hell would something be designed like this to strand owners in an adventure vehicle like a Jeep?...

Part of it has to be the tires with those big hockey puck lugs. My Rubicon is the same way. I noticed it the first few test drives. The short wheelbase also factors in as well. But it's fun to motor...
