People tend to forget that at the end of the day it's still a 5,000lb. vehicle; whether it's AWD, 4WD or 4WD w/ELSD. That's not to say that the top-top models won't take you a little further off the beaten path, but they're all more than capable for most of the situations that most of the owners will ever encounter.

Re: Blizzard ...

QT1 is all you need because the only difference QT2 offers is low range, which you really shouldn't need for snow.

The Revo tires were priceless this weekend!
Wow 20"! Awesome to hear about how great QT1 is in the snow since this is why I bought my GC to begin with. I would never take my $40,000 Jeep rock crawling or mud slinging anyway.

Re: Blizzard ...

So here in the Twin Cities (Minnesota), all we got was rain/snow mix that amounted to just over 2 inches of snow over a layer of ice.

Looks like you have LED 'bulbs' in your fogs...
Looks nice, but I'm betting they don't do much for lighting up the road.
I yanked out the OEM fogs and adapted in some PIAA 530 LED fogs.
Better light than those silly/cheap OEM fogs.

My fogs suck for light output already so I'm thinking about just putting in color-matching (to my hid headlights) bulbs in there and run them as DRL.
