toughest weather city? toughest jeep?

Fargo North Dakota was recently awarded the nations toughest weather city. so i was thinking since i lived here would that make my jeep the toughest jeep as well?

Probably not.

Why was it awarded the toughest weather town? How hot and cold are the winters? It gets horribly hot and humid here for about 9 months of the year but we have nice tempered winters. And the ocean being 1/2 mile from my driveway is rough on vehicles but oh well, cost of girls in bikinis

I used to pump gas part time, in comes this lady with North Dakota plates. She had a block heater attached to her car so it will start in the morning. I am no expert, and she didn't say what part of ND she lived.
But I would be safe to assume it gets mighty cold there, or at least a lot colder than our winters here in NE.

the weather channel did a test of the toughest weather cities and fargo won. it gets -20 to -30 at nights and we had close to 80 inches of snow. so it does get very cold and nasty here. but ive never used a block heater on my jeep!

You know what????????!!!! Your jeep rules!!!!!! I live in VA. I got all four seasons and none of them are aggressive. Never below zero in winter and never over 100 but humid and making it feel like over 100 but not for long we have awesome spring and fall seasons.

well im glad there is someone else on this forum that followed that contest! and i would say that both of our jeeps are very tough to begin with... i mean there jeeps. but since we're from the top two toughest weather cities in the nation, it just makes them that much tougher

our yearly sandbagging is starting tomorrow for the flood we always get. ill make sure to post some pictures.. with my jeep of course.
