Re: What does snow mode do?
Here in central Ontario snow mode works well for me during slippery or snow covered road conditions. Wheel spins off corners is minimized and Jeep is quite stable. Lose a lot of that "I'm gonna slide into the ditch any minute" feeling. And yes it obviously is enhanced by decent snow-rated tires. My Dura Tracs perform as expected although they probably are not the best choice on ice.
Just a reminder for anyone new to Jeeps (or any other AWD / 4WD) that although these rigs are very capable and can make their way through some pretty nasty road conditions, some common sense and caution is still mandatory to ensure you "keep the shiny side up" ! Seems like everytime there is a news report on TV about bad weather, they always have a shot of some guy in his nice new Explorer or whatever laying on its side in a ditch. This coming from a guy who 10 yrs ago dumped a Jeep Liberty end over end into a field. Hell of a ride...now I know what those Nascar guys experience when they barrel roll. On the upside, our Jeep gave her life for us, and wifey and I walked away without a scratch.
