Snow
 
I don't drive through much of it out here in Cali but while I was up in Tahoe we got 18" overnight and the cabin I was staying in was snowed in. The roads were untouched at 7:30 in the morning so I took my QD-II out for a test drive with my TOYO OPEN COUNTRY H/T tires.

Flawless!!! I got stuck once only because I pushed up so much snow on the front.. and I stopped. But I backed up and started a new track and it kept on pushing! Proof Jeeps don't get stuck, they only get delayed. The Jeep drove so well!!

It's not like I haven't driven in snow before, I had Bridgestone Dueler Alenza tires before and they sucked big time in only 3" of snow.

This time the Jeep did phenomenal.

As a side note, I didn't remove the lower air dam (and I have the Mopar Body Kit and probably why I got stuck) and I'd also like to mention that I have the bwoody intake with a dryfilter and no hydrolocking!! LOL

Yessir..!

Btw, the doors, hatch and windows all froze shut.. I know there is a thread on here about someone complaining about their WK2 freezing shut.. remote start with the heater prepped on full blast ftw. Unstuck the doors after five minutes but I had to have my friend push the tailgate from the inside to open that bish.

Took my 4.7 with QDII out last week and had some fun on the power lines. I have the Toyo Open Country A/T, and I have never gotten stuck either. I would recommend them to anyone, great tires!!!
