The QDII's three drive tires were fighting each other for traction while the WK2 settled into the wet snow while climbing a hill at very slow speed. Almost came to a complete stop before it finally got some traction and forward momentum. Not a reasuring JEEP thing.
Have you had the ESC update applied? If you haven't, I think it'll help.

Dealer said the update didn't apply to my VIN.

Hey how do you like the firestone A/T's. I am looking for a new tire to put on my Jeep, so far they are at the top of list.

+1 to the Firestone, others swear by the Michelin AT MS2 and the Goodyear Silent Armour.

It snowed yesterday in the high country. No really. Bring it. Muuaaawaaahaaahaaahaaa!
