89 Grand Wagoneer -AMAZING in Snow!

This summer I finally got my 89 Grand Wagoneer running after 2 years part time rebuild: Howell fuel injection, Rough Country lift, 31" BFG KO2, new brakes, ++++. It was not running for 15 years until this summer. I finally got to try it in the snow and WOW! We had 2' today with 3.5' drifts from the plow in Lakewood, CO (western Denver). The Wag went through it all with no problems and I broke down the snow plow drifts around my other Jeeps. The Wag has open diffs and did really great. Not quite as good as the fully locked XJ's but I was amazed. Just thought that I would share.

There is a cool front coming thru Florida right now. Right after it does, I'll go out and find a snow drift and plow thru it and post a video.

Kinda hard to video yourself going through passenger side drifts. I also wasn't in the mood after 4 1/2 hours of clearing snow. Maybe I just dreamed it all since there was no photo..........

Sometimes that happens. I dreamed this once and then it really happened.
