High centering is my biggest concern lol when driving in that deep snow, we just drive right up it like ramp with that flat bottom. I honestly think if you leave that air dam on it makes it less likely since you are 'plowing' in front of you.2015 GC diesel... I am going to put another set of KO2's on mine after running mich's for a few years. Last time I had KO2's I had to get to one of my transmitter sites and the GC pulled better up the hill through the snow than my power wagon. The flat bottom with the offroad plates made it just slide along amazingly even pulling a 10% grade and snow piling up over the hood. It was like being in a snow plow with chains! It was great right up until I high centered it on a 3 foot drift thinking, if it could do the hill what trouble would the drift at the top be? I'll never get that 4 hours of digging back LOL...
Lucky! My Mustang will sit in the garage until March or April here in CT! Happy New Year!What is snow? Happy New Year from Miami and 80 degrees. Might go out to the shop and find the miss in my 1967 Camaro with an LS1. Mt son sent me pictures from Omaha with my grandson running the snow blower. Boy do I like South Florida this time of year.
Your mention of ABS on icy roads... ABS is great on wet pavement, it is good on snowy roads, but it is terrible on ice (every ABS car or truck I have driven). This is because it works too fast. On ice, there isn't enough friction to get the wheel spinning again before the ABS lets the brakes go on again. What I have found (and tested) to work is use the ABS as an indicator. If it is clicking fast, let up a bit on the brakes. If it isn't clicking at all, press harder. Slow clicks will get you the best results on ice.My TrailHawk gets through deep snow....no problem.
Its when there's an inch of icy freezing roads where i had the problem mentioned above.
To be fair, i don't think there's any other vehicle out there that could perform better in icy road conditions.
Braking in that mentioned scenario was a slipp'n and a slid'n with the ABS working full time.
The snow covered hatch with the blanked out tail lights made the white knuckling even whiter!
Maybe it the tires?
Do you drive primarily in the City?I hate to break it to you, but the rear wing is fine. Dust gets all over car in the summer no matter what and without it, you'd end up with bad hwy wind noise. Plus, it looks nice and without it, the JGC wouldn't look like the best looking SUV on the road that it is.
