Just wanted to quote a few of the controversial postings I have seen in the other many threads about the video. Of course before this thread is closed by admins....

Don't blame the tool! (the Jeep is just an inanimate tool)
Blame the user.
You hear the guy recording note that the tires are basically bald AND that the high speed spinning of the tires created ice patches under the tires which created even more of a problem for the driver.

Though I also somewhat understand the driver's frustration because I've been stuck on snow that had melted slightly and refroze thereby causing a layer of ice and my FWD Audi was parked on a slight uphill incline...

Spent at least 20 minutes of tire spinning to get out of there... Wish I would have had the forethought to have kitty litter in the truck to provide traction.... Live and learn.

Best for now.
Someone sticking up for the "skills challenged" driver?

If at first you don't succeed, try something even stupider...

But this is an old video that is currently appearing in multiple postings here.

Lack of traction with his tyres is most probable but the traction problem is in his head. He also failed to avoid the large mass of snow under the front end and failed to realise that there was some traction further down the hill that he should have utilised.

Re: Note... Please learn how to use 4x4 so you don't look like this guy

Just because he lost his temper doesn't mean there was a problem with the car. The only Jeep "failure" is that of the automaker failing to put better tires on the car from the factory. I found that out in the latest Chicago snow storm (videos in another thread) when I got stuck on layers of compacted snow and ice.

That being said, there was very little that an individual could do other than struggle - in the absence of any traction mats, kitty litter etc. His unfocused attempts were entertaining for sure but ice is ice and nothing but studded tires would have permitted an easy escape from that parking spot.

How about he could have pushed the 4LO button and been out of there instantly? The Jeep wasn't the problem as many have mentioned the guy was an idiot.

So...I actually recommend you try it for yourself. 4-LO would not have helped in a situation where traction was a problem. 4-LO may maximize available traction but cannot make it.

Driveway-rated ?

4-LOW, ORA-2, SNOW-way !

Low vehicle + high snow = that

I don't see that he needed better tires or even more ground clearance. Most of the problem was caused torque steer + slippery conditions. If he would have backed up, put the jeep in drive, turn the wheel left, let off the brake, and don't touch the gas the jeep would have climbed right out of the spot simple as pie.

I don't even think 4Lo would have been necessary, but it would have made the jeep climb itself out of the spot even easier.
