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

I was very impressed with how good the stock goodyears are. I know they only have 5k miles but I was able to start from a stop on hill that are wrangler with nitto terra grapplers couldn't even make it up.

Great videos! Can't believe the wrangler couldn't make it up that little hill though! Are your wheels the 70th anniversary wheels or the new overlands? I like them...

+1. I am also a little jealous of your rims.

Thanks

BTW thats not a little hill, it's really steep. I had a friend with an Audi Quattro with snow tires that could barley make it up that hill. I think the cherokee is just that good...

I'm not sure what they I are. I know they are stock 20" wheels.
