No snow this year!!
I came from a JK wrangler.....which I think I may miss, by the way, when it gets warm and I can't remove the top...but that's another topic. My wrangler was unstoppable in the snow. Last year, we had a foot of snow drop weekly during December and January here in RI. It drove through it with ease. I bought my Overland 4x4 in October but I don't think I'm going to get a chance to test it this winter. We had one storm with about 4 inches, but that's it. Of those of you coming from a Wrangler to a Grand Cherokee, how do you feel the snow capabilities compare?

I'm coming from a Cherokee to the Grand, and in the same boat. My Cherokee was unstoppable...during Snowmageddon, I didn't even slip tooling around, and that was with a foot on the ground with another foot coming down. We've gotten maybe 2 inches of snow this year, and that was on the grass!

This winter is a long way from being over. Despite the cloudless 41 degree sunny day we are having in Albany right now.

I know! I tell all my neighbors the reason we've had no snow is because I bought the Jeep LOL

I'm in the same boat. I traded in a Fwd car for the jeep. Haven't had any snow to test it out. Somewhat depressed about it.

Also very little snow even in this corner of the Great White North. Largest snowfall was maybe 6 inches around Christmas, then smaller ones that are no real test for a Jeep. Some freezing rain also.
But I'm not really complaining. An early spring sounds pretty good from here!

We haven't had any know in Phoenix either, just 72degress and clear skys this past week. Baseball starts next month too. ;)

When I have a need to slip I find a dry sandy river bottom to run through.

No snow in southern Indiana either.. Most we had about 1/2 inch barely... I would love to try mt GC out in the snow.. Pretty disappointed.
