Default Just got done winching

The taurus made it about half way up our icy driveway (the first 90 hill for those who have been to our house) before it stopped and started sliding backward and spinning. Ended up turned 90 degree to the driveway and wedged in the hill. Had to get the Jeep and winch it out because the wheels were just spinning on the ice.

Good times. Took 30 minutes to get the car up our 500 foot driveway.

So don't anyone say my Jeep doesn't see action. DAMN.....I should have gotten an action shot for the front page of GL4x4.

See, if it was called a 500, it'd be AWD and no problem.

They need to ditch that stupid name and go back to the 500.

I'm seriously.

I saw your jeep in action on a video we found this past weekend. It was taken at the badlands in '03.

He would have made it if his Taurus was equipped with a manual transmission.

If I hadn't been working until 6pm the driveway would not have been icy when I came home.
