Well I woke up this morning to about 7 inches on the ground and it was still coming down. So me being me the first thing I do is go jump in the ttan and go looking for unpaved roads. LOL Here's some pics of my trip.

Took the wifes jeep WK out too. That thing is insane in the snow! It honestly does better in the snow than my titan does. It has the full time 4wd QTII with the 4.7 V8.

You can have it, I'm not jealous. After living in north central Florida the last 14 years I'm ENJOYING the snow and cold. Call me crazy but I love it up here.

I love them. They did great in the deep snow and I even used 2wd a few times just to see how they'd do in 2wd and they did really good. It would take a bit to get going but once going it would go good until I hit a decent size hill then I would need 4wd again. Plus mine are about halfway gone too so the tread isn't near as deep as when they were new. They are slick in light snow though, but that's any M/T tire.

Apparently not because her jeep is so stable and gets so much traction in the snow that it's almost boring. Even turning off the ESP you have to work to get it to spin!LOL We had some NASTY freezing rain here a few weeks ago and my titan even in 4wd was scary going to work but my wife said the jeep twitched a couple times and the ESP light came on and it corrected itself right away and went on. One other thing that contributes A LOT is her tires. It has Mastercraft (madeby cooper) courser HTR's on it and they have fairly open lugs(for a more street oriented tire) so they don't get packed up but at the same time they are COVERED in sipes so they grip REALLY good even on ice. But even with identical tires her jeep would kick the titans a$$ in snow because that full time 4wd that can adjust itself as needed rocks. I can't wait till we get her 2" lift and a set of JK rubicon wheels and 32" M/T's so I can take it to rausch creek!

coming from Fla. I can understand you appreciation for the snow, but give it three full seasons and you will say uncle!:crying: Todays 7" of snow came unexpected, forecast was for 2" and sleet & freezing rain. At least I can say the 4 wheel drive got a little lubrication today. lol.

I grew up in Bloom, just moed to FL. after I graduated and lived there for 14 years. I liked FL but missed it up here an am glad to be back. I've been to the 4 wheel jamboree many, many times and my wife and I went this past july too. I used to LOVE the cruises during it but they put a stop to that years ago. I guess too many people were actually having fun so bloom pd had to put a stop to that! The POS college kids can destroy the town year after year but 4wd'ers can't have fun for one weekend.

Carlo Natit: They are cooper STT's, everything I have is in my sig.

I agree. Problem is money talks ,Bloom turns a check because B.U. dumps so much $$$$ into the local economy.

HA HA Thanks man, you're truck was my inspiration! :hi: You're truck is still WAAAY nicer than mine though. As much as I REALLY hate to say it mine may be going bye bye here in a couple months. We just aren't making the money we were and it's payment and horrible gas mileage (It's gotten waaaay worse too with this $hit winter blend! I struggle to get 15mpg with cruise set at 65mph on the highway!) are killing us. I'm finally at the point where I owe about as much as it's worth so I wouldn't be upside down on a trade and I'm thinking of downsizing to an 05+ taco with a 4cyl and manual tranny. I've been looking a lot into them and a lot of guys with the extended cab, 4wds are getting low-mid 20's out of them on the highway. Not too mention I can find them for mid-high teens so my payment wouldn't be too bad. It REALLY saddens me though because I love this truck so much and it's finally getting semi-badass and I've invested so much time and money in it but I can't stand seeing my wife and I struggle so bad anymore.:crying:
