lillyjas,
What size snow tire do you run?

Blizzacks 255 40 I think... Traveling on west coast but will try to look up... I do have 9.5 rims for winter I can say with the 18 inches of snow we got ... And they didn't plow the sub... I used the srt powered "snowplow". Dropped it in snow mode and nailed it... Had snow coming up over the hood... It was freakin awesome! The neighbors couldn't believe it made considering it is dropped....

There is nothing that can stop this thing... We had glare ice and no salt on roads due to -15 temps... The jeep would start to pull to one side but corrects itself and stayed in the lane... The traction nanny in snow mode is unreal

Re: Super Impressed w Snow Handling

The only way to drive the beast in the snow is with the traction off.... at a minimum.

For extra excitement, put it on track mode and hold the traction botton off for a few seconds and off you go drifting while left foot braking.....
Disclaimer, this is only if you have great car control skills....
i.e. not for the amateurs.....

I'll try to catch it on video..... it is awesome!

I didn't have the gonads to put in track mode ... But did throw in sport just for poops and giggles on some snowy roads with no one around and yes.. It was a good time ...
