I bought my Jeep in February this year and besides a March trip to Whiteface in NY its seen little winter weather until now.
We have significant snow accumulation in the NC mountains now and last few days all the flat landers were demonstrating what not and how not to drive. Our road during winter conditions is signed 4wd or chains only but many, many ignore this. Last night I passed a mini van doing 5 mph down the hill only to get trapped behind a 2wd duelie pick up doing 10, nearly two miles down the mountain.
Out our window we are treated to the amusing sites and sounds of drivers ignoring the law and spinning their tires while creeping along at walking speeds and sliding into snowbanks, all the while imaging the bitching out that the driver is getting from his wife in the passenger seat.
Out the uncleared driveway, down the snowy roads and back up again in snow mode the Jeep with QD2 performed flawlessly. Life is damn good in a Jeep.
