Re: Snow!

Let's hear from some of you folks in CO. My friend called me today from there... 2 feet of new snow and still falling!

Re: Snow!

About 8-10 inches through mid-morning. Had a great time driving around when the roads were empty.

Re: Snow!

Kinda a dumb question, but since it's a snow thread and we're talking about lots of snow. if you plow thru some really deep stuff (assuming there is nothing hard underneath) can really deep snow cause any damage to anything underneath the jeep?

I drove from Manchester to Bristol at 8am and was pleased to see the roads were relatively empty compared to the traffic i'm used to. The GC handled the snow like a champ, even with the stock Latitude's!

Quick video of me coming out of our driveway today. There was about 8in of heavy wet snow, I had taken a 2013 Impreza down the driveway right before and got sort of stuck at the bottom, lot of rocking to get it parked (stock terrible tires). Jeep crawled right out, when I parked back down later I was able to pull the same turn around as the Subaru with no drama at all.... Went out and ran some errands and I passed a lot of stuck cars and never once was the jeep phased going through unplowed snow and drifts at driveway entrances...

Yes I had a talk with my gf about the videoing with the camera up right and it appears YouTube attempted to fix things which messes up the edges... Oh well.

Really is an amazing vehicle. Snow won't stop these beast. I can only imagine what the more advanced 4wd systems are like. Until 2017 qt1 is awesome!

Re: Snow!

Ok, think piks are going to work?! 14/16 inches plus drifts, old GMC to open up my drive etc. then the Jeep & I went in search of virgin snow on unplowed roads etc; it seems to be unstopable and a joy to drive! Dave
