Nice Sean!  We feel your pain.  The lump on the left was our subaru.   :o


LOL, my 2nd winter in Colorado, 2002.  The 4 vehicles are 88 GW, 77 Wagoneer, 88 Subaru and 91 Ford F150.  The canine is Butterscotch the Spazzmutt (golden retriever)  When the snow got too deep for the Subaru, the Jeeps got put to use.

We got hit pretty hard in the norther WI/UP of mich area.  We went from bare ground to a foot of snow in 24hrs with huge gusts of wind up to 70mph I believe.  Anyway, got the Eagle out before the plows were out and did some drift busting.  It easily handled the 2 foot plus powder drifts, I'm pretty amazed at how well the car goes through the deep snow with such little ground clearance.  The key was that it was all powder though.  Here are the only pics I managed to get.
