Snow review of 2013 Cherokee and some PICS and Vid

Hey guys in KC we got about 10/11" of snow here and I was really impressed with the jeep. The snow came in the morning and through the day. I drove my Jeep about 10miles to pick up my wife from work and it did great. I went through a lot of deep snow!

When I was on my way downtown I was driving on all surface streets that were unplowed to avoid all the sitting/stuck cars/buses/ trucks. There was one big hill in downtown KC that I couldn't make it up in just snow mode. I had a good run at it then the power cut out so I had to back down the hill.

After the run in with the big hill I did some research and if I put it in 4x4 low and use either snow or Mud/Sand it will go through anything and it allows a lot of wheel slip.

Over all I am very impressed with my new Jeep. It doesn't do as well as my 8klb diesel truck did, but it did very well for only 5klbs.

Here are some pics and a couple vids to see how well 4low did!

Enjoy

Sometimes turning off the traction control helps in those situations and you can do it on the fly.
