Just wanted to say...

I love my Jeep...

Recently Oklahoma got their big snow storm.... like 8in of snow (Being from Wisconsin, this is really nothing) But the state shutdown. I work for a Wisconsin founded printing company (so you were expected to make it in...) in IT. I was one of the few that made it in my Jeep didn't even slip once. I ended up spending the whole day getting people unstuck from the 3-4ft drifts the formed around their cars. I only have the QT-II system but this thing didnt have a problem getting though the banks of snow. The next day I took the multi-mount winch that my buddy owns and pulled a co-workers car out of a 3ft deep 60ft long snow bank. Also pulled my GF out with it... Didn't really need the winch with my GF, but it was a reason to use it. All in all I had a lot of fun. For next year I will be making a front receiver and winch hookups so I can mount it up there if I want to.

There is my story of the Oklahoma winter storm... We are suposed to get a second wave Wednesday!!!

I must admit I'm a huge fan of driving in snow. Adds a little challenge to mindless commuting.

I agree completely. I've had the jeep for 5 months now and was very impressed in the last storm. We got 14 inches and the Jeep had absolutely no problem with it. I ended up shuttling a few people home after work :-)

Agreed! Got my Jeep back in April and couldn't wait for some real snow. I was tearing through the 20 some inches we had here in Chicago last week. My wife was yelling at me that I was going to get stuck and I was like, "this is a mother f***** JEEP!"
