Re: Major Snowstorm? Please prove it.....

OK got hammered with record breaking snow. My WK2 did great. At first I tried to use my XJ with select trac and TrueTrac differentials both front and rear. The XJ did OK but it seemed to struggle and wonder here and there. I then tried the WK2 with QTII and I was very impressed not only did it get in places the XJ did, it did it more comfortably and with much better stability. It was obvious to me that the GC could do a lot better in even deeper snow. I liked that the electronics were doing their job and I was feeling nothing, this babe was always under control, no fishtailing, no having to fight it to stay straight even in areas I thought that it should.
The bad thing about it is that now both I and the wife want the GC and find excuses not to use the XJ.
I guess I need to make plans to get a second one, I am too spoiled now to go back to the XJ.

That is crazy! Thats when you put it in low range and go around everyone. The hell if I would sit there to get buried in my car.

Re: Major Snowstorm? Please prove it.....

This is what I came home to after being in the city during the whole blizzard.



This in in off road II with snow mode
I may have been able to make it in one shot if I got some more speed but...


Its hard to tell without anything around it, so I put this up to show the snow depth. As you can see it is up to her knee.

That's what I figured, I was shooting for the spot between another car and a brick wall

Yeah, it was set all the way up and that drift in front of the garage was probably 2 feet

Very nice, I wonder if 4-Lo would have been any extra help.
