My Jeep In The Snow.. =[

So lately we've had some snow. My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7L handles horribly in the snow. Traction control tries to keep me from sliding, but I mostly fishtail, or if I grab the e-brake, I go in circles. It seems as though my 4wd isn't working? Help? Please? Pretty please?!

Re: My Jeep In The Snow.. =[

well....pulling the ebrake locks the rear brakes....and thats why you slide around. You have anti-lock brakes.....just slam them on. Sounds like you need new tires though....

Re: My Jeep In The Snow.. =[

Why in the hell are you pulling the ebrake? Are you running Tokyo drift in the snow?

Ease up off the gas if you are fish tailing. Are your tires slick?

Re: My Jeep In The Snow.. =[

Shut the traction control off. This weekend, we had 24 inches of snow. If you try to drive through that the traction control makes it impossible. Shut it off and Don't pull the Ebrake.

Saying you pull the Ebrake makes me think you are joking.

Not quite sure why you're pulling the ebrake...I use this on ice but only to drift

Re: My Jeep In The Snow.. =[

Maybe its a combination of bad tires and driving style. Just a thought.....

I hope this helps.

I had no where to go except for on coming traffic, or into the back of one of those cars. Tires are Goodyear Wrangler SR-A. I'm from Chicago.

Re: My Jeep In The Snow.. =[

Does it happen every time it snows? or did it happen just that once? cause if thats the case, maybe you hit a patch of ice... good luck.

Re: My Jeep In The Snow.. =[

This is surprising I have an 05 limited with the 5.7 and stock tires. My jeep handles like a dream in the snow. Never had any concern about stopping or going...
