No snow this year!!

I came from a JK wrangler.....which I think I may miss, by the way, when it gets warm and I can't remove the top...but that's another topic. My wrangler was unstoppable in the snow. Last year, we had a foot of snow drop weekly during December and January here in RI. It drove through it with ease. I bought my Overland 4x4 in October but I don't think I'm going to get a chance to test it this winter. We had one storm with about 4 inches, but that's it. Of those of you coming from a Wrangler to a Grand Cherokee, how do you feel the snow capabilities compare?

Re: No snow this year!!

I'm coming from a Cherokee to the Grand, and in the same boat. My Cherokee was unstoppable...during Snowmageddon, I didn't even slip tooling around, and that was with a foot on the ground with another foot coming down. We've gotten maybe 2 inches of snow this year, and that was on the grass!

This winter is a long way from being over. Despite the cloudless 41 degree sunny day we are having in Albany right now.

Re: No snow this year!!

I know! I tell all my neighbors the reason we've had no snow is because I bought the Jeep LOL

I'm in the same boat. I traded in a Fwd car for the jeep. Haven't had any snow to test it out. Somewhat depressed about it.

Re: No snow this year!!

Also very little snow even in this corner of the Great White North. Largest snowfall was maybe 6 inches around Christmas, then smaller ones that are no real test for a Jeep. Some freezing rain also.
But I'm not really complaining. An early spring sounds pretty good from here!

Re: No snow this year!!

We haven't had any know in Phoenix either, just 72degress and clear skys this past week. Baseball starts next month too.

When I have a need to slip I find a dry sandy river bottom to run through.

Re: No snow this year!!

No snow in southern Indiana either.. Most we had about 1/2 inch barely... I would love to try mt GC out in the snow.. Pretty disappointed.
