Fun, fun, fun!

I just got back from driving around in the snow. I've been waiting for this all winter. We had a storm come through last night (it's still snowing a little bit) and gave us a decent amount of snow. Nothing insane but enough to have some fun. Some spots, where the wind blew, created some pretty good drifts to plow through - to the point of not being able to see because the wind blew the snow back onto us. lol There has been ice on the streets for weeks so the combo of ice & snow made for some very fun turns in the residential areas where there weren't any vehicles in the way. I think I had some people looking at me like I was a crazy woman driver but I was having a blast! Never did get to engage the 4WD, as it was never necessary. I hope the Jeep had as much fun as I did! I might have to go out again later. We'll see!

The rear 4x4 system will automatically engage if a partial slip is detected and I believe indicates on the dash. I might have to re read the manual on that. Turning it on manual engages the AWD staying on continuously.

Haha slip sliding away. I hope you high tailed it out of the street before the police were called in!!! LOL
