Found a nice spot west of Moab.
Wasn't trying to do any offroading at all, just looking for a nice spot.

The Compass handles the light snow, ice, and mud well. Never felt it slip. My Dad's GMC (right next to us in the one photo) was slipping around and making him nervous.

Even with the poorly rated stock ContiPro's, Jeep for the win. :)

FWIW
Our trip was roughly 2100 miles, mostly freeway, 75+mph.
But up hills, through the mountains, etc.
Mixed with very cold temps for 3 or 4 days straight (15°F highs, 5-10°F lows)

and for the trip, we averaged 26mpg.

24mpg going up from the deserts to altitude.
28mpg for most flat areas
23-24mpg around town in the cold temps
29-30mpg heading back down to the deserts.

All of this with 5 people, and a completely full rear.
I'm a believer... more so than I was before.

Nice we just bought a Compass a few weeks ago. That being said I have a 2016 Wrangler Unlimited Backcountry edition. We drove it from MN down to Utah and hopped the national parks and then spent the last 3 days of the trip in Moab doing some off roading before coming back to MN.

One big question i always had on my mind was what the stock tires are like and its good to hear that you have a good thing to say about them having put them through what you did.
