We just got 2 inches of ice this week. We couldn't wait to get out and test my 14 Limited QD2 Diesel. I have the stock Michelins and it was as sure footed as a cat when in Snow mode. We found a vacant parking lot covered in black ice and experimented. Traction Control is very effective. I had to try hard to slide and could steer anyway I liked. With Traction Control off, even the forward drive from idling caused slip and drifting. I thought that was crazy until we parked and tried to walk. We could barely stand up.
The founder of JeepGarage.org, Scottina06, has a son Max who is in need of corrective surgery from an infection at birth that left one leg 4 inches short. We need to support our Jeep brothers. His family has started a fund on giveforward.com. If you have ever been helped by someone else, now is a good time to pay it forward. Here is a link to that page. God bless you! http://gfwd.at/1rz33PW
