Re: Driving through the snow today in PA (PIC Heavy!)

Like the pics. I was on the road myself on Wed (12/26) heading west through PA, OH, and IN. PA and OH Turnpike were a total mess. Thank God for my JGC..

Re: Driving through the snow today in PA (PIC Heavy!)

I drove from New Castle, PA (northwest of Pittsburgh near Youngstown, OH) to DC today. I have had my 2011 Hemi JGC for almost 2 years and have only had about 2 inches of snow in DC. We had about 6 inches in western PA and I enjoyed driving around. I used snow mode and with 20 inch Blizzak DMV-1's had no problems. A plow truck mounded the snow in front of my driveway. I put the air suspension in the highest setting and had no problems getting out. This JEEP is a really capable machine. The only problem was with the OEM windshield wiper blades. They kept icing up and did a poor job on the front windshield. Will have to get some winter blades.

I should've added. I ran out of wiper fluid. lol. Mine iced up so bad. Just refilled the container today after work.

Re: Driving through the snow today in PA (PIC Heavy!)

Live weather feature?? Is that only in the 2013 or can I get that in my 2011 nav unit?

I was thinking that also. Is that just on the 730N?

Great pics, looks like the SRT8 performed well in those conditions also!

Re: Driving through the snow today in PA (PIC Heavy!)

Yea, that SRT8 was performing exceptionally well lol. I'm not sure about the nav questions. I just press "Menu" (sometimes twice. In the system menu, not the nav menu), then "Sirius Travel Link", then "Weather".

I know you have to have a sirius travel link subscription in order to see/use it.

I have it on my 2011 but it's a Sirius subscription to "Travel Link". Gives you live sports, local gas prices, weather, etc.

Re: Driving through the snow today in PA (PIC Heavy!)

Great pics! I love snow and nasty weather in general, so I'll have to be sure to get the travel link when I upgrade. Good for storm chasing
