ok I got it to play. he stated he had a thought the JK was going to be better so he was not neutral but maybe it really is better because the JL has even more computer controlled nannies.

I think I could drive a 1987 Mustang GT better in the snow than this guy could drive a Jeep.

I didn't even bother...

When I need advice from someone who hasn't started shaving yet... I'll be sure to just kill myself.

Exclamation

"If you have any questions, comment down below".

Just ask him the questions in the comment. I watched the video, and he expected the JL to preform better, and was surprised when it didn't. They were both unlimited Sahara's so as close to an apples to apples comparison as you can get.

He speculated that maybe the traction control was set up better in the JK. Maybe the fact that he drove the JL first and then drove the JK in the JL's path had something to do with it?

We got a foot of snow over the past 3 days in Minneapolis. Took the JL out with the family before plows had gone through last batch of 6 inches of snow.

JL performed admirably. Wifey had a few wines so she was ok with a little "snow testing".

Kids loved the ride.

Tan interior. That's the problem.

Kid needs some better camera mounts too. I was getting motion sickness. Also, learn car terms. It's called understeer. "reving out"? Yeah...tires make a huge difference. Are the JLs on the same tire as the JKs? I'm guessing (hoping) that both are brand new, and that the JK wasn't a pre-owned one.

Also needs to be edited down to a 5 min video. He rambled on.

He didn't even mention if the tires were different. Worthless video.
