Re: weight in the back for snow?
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] I can only speak for CA snow, but we are in very steep country AND snow. When we ordered our ZJ, the thing we tried to do was get as close to balanced as we could. That meant leaving the V8 engine behind since it added 270 lbs to the front with all the stuff that went with it. When I see it is going to snow, I fill the fuel tank, which helps a lot. I drive RIGHT BY the yuppie junk up here with our '97 Grand Cherokee 4.0 Select-trac. The Select-Trac makes more difference than anything, however, without that, I'd be just another stuck yuppie 4WD. All-wheels driving with the center unlocked is the berries! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
