snow pics!!

Went ATVing today with a few buddies.. climbed up past 12,000ft where it's like a totally different world. It was 65 and sunny when we started at the bottom and 30 degrees with almost a foot of snow by the time we were forced to turn around near the top.

I knew what this Jeep was capable of but it's ability to find traction amazed me today. Despite running all-season tires, it was able to follow the ATVs as far up the mountain as they could go until we had to turn around because of the snow. Ran into a guy in a Rubicon near the top that seemed amazed I was able to make it up there.. lol. Check out the pics.. they're geo tagged with elevation info as well, if you are interested. Enjoy!

omg yes.. especially near the top where we were forced to turn around. the snow was getting pretty deep and the trail was so narrow, i basically held my breath as i used the backup cam to back down to the last switchback so i could turn the jeep around.. lol

Re: snow pics!!

Cool pic's!

I ordered winter wheels & tires for the WK2 last week. About 1" of snow fell 80 miles north of us. It'll be here before we know it.

Re: snow pics!!

Way to represent CO Chibianh! She's a good lookin' rig with the white stuff as background. Whereabouts is that, Loveland?

John S, which winter wheelset and rubber did you go with? I'm still surfing around, not a ton of wheels out just yet.

Sport Edition TX5 18" Wheels from Tire Rack (they look similar to the stock Jeep 18") & Falken Eurowinter HS439 265/60/18 tires from a local tire store. We'll need to test fit the wheels on the Overland to make sure they fit. I was going to go for a more aggressive snow tire but I decided to go for a low noise tread, as most of my winter driving will be on pavement.
