Today was my first time getting stuck in the snow and thanks to two fellow jeepers I got out. The snow was up to the doors.

Did you try airing down. It's amazing what dropping down to 12psi does in the snow.

It took many tugs, some shoveling, and some more tugs from an XJ to get me out. And we broke a 12,000lb strap...next mod is a winch

It's a one lane road and another jeep was coming out so I pulled to the side and when I hit the snow I got pulled in. Fortunately he stayed and his brother came with his XJ to help get me out. And the plowed surface was a couple inches thick ice with a light coating of snow on top

Believe it or not, solid ice fell behind the front right tire and we couldn't pull it out/push it over with our being pulled
Plus my tires suck and I need some new tires so that didn't help anyone. Lol
