Snow
 
Anyone have any insight on how the WK2 performs in the snow. Would love to see a video...lol ;)

Insight would be garbage, we need real world examples. You will find out in a couple of months when the snow is heavy.

The engineer from Jeep said it handles awesome and its really fun in the snow, said it will embarrass the BMW X5..

We need to wait for the winter when there's a few of these on the road in deep snow conditions. When QD was introduced in the early WJs, there were quite a few complaints that the system wasn't working as it should. It turned out that the gerotor diffs needed to be slipping a bit before enough pressure was built to engage the limited slip. The system worked, but not as folks thought it should.
