Thumbs up Snow

I don't drive through much of it out here in Cali but while I was up in Tahoe we got 18" overnight and the cabin I was staying in was snowed in. The roads were untouched at 7:30 in the morning so I took my QD-II out for a test drive with my TOYO OPEN COUNTRY H/T tires.

Flawless!!! I got stuck once only because I pushed up so much snow on the front.. and I stopped. But I backed up and started a new track and it kept on pushing! Proof Jeeps don't get stuck, they only get delayed. The Jeep drove so well!!

It's not like I haven't driven in snow before, I had Bridgestone Dueler Alenza tires before and they sucked big time in only 3" of snow.

This time the Jeep did phenomenal.

As a side note, I didn't remove the lower air dam (and I have the Mopar Body Kit and probably why I got stuck) and I'd also like to mention that I have the bwoody intake with a dryfilter and no hydrolocking!! LOL

Re: Snow

Yessir..!

Btw, the doors, hatch and windows all froze shut.. I know there is a thread on here about someone complaining about their WK2 freezing shut.. remote start with the heater prepped on full blast ftw. Unstuck the doors after five minutes but I had to have my friend push the tailgate from the inside to open that bish.

Re: Snow

Took my 4.7 with QDII out last week and had some fun on the power lines. I have the Toyo Open Country A/T, and I have never gotten stuck either. I would recommend them to anyone, great tires!!!
