    It's not just a Jeep, it's an amusement park on wheels.

    Hi, first time driver in Jeep during snow, how do you know when to be in 4h or 4l?

    On road or offroad driving?

    4hi should be all you need for snowy streets. 4 low is really only for offroad slloooowww driving or in really deep snow uphill. Realistically 4lo is for maximum traction. If paved traffic roads are covered in snow or packed snow, 4hi is all you need.

    As far as icy roads, ice is ice, and 4wd is pretty much irrelevant. A Jeep will slide on ice regardless of what mode you're in.

    Great wisdom here. Most of the vehicles we see stuck in the ditches during snow storms are 4WD SUVs. In snow and ice, your tire choice is more important than your driveline choice. Snow tires on a passenger car work better than an all-train tire on a 4WD SUV.

    Exactly what the others have said. Iíll usually start out in 2wd and shift into 4Hi as needed. I learned snow driving in a big open parking lot and still do the same with new vehicles to see what will cause them to skid and slide etc when braking. Once you have a feel for you vehicle you will know when to brake and how hard to apply the brakes. Itís all in the feel. Plus learning how to get out of a skid when braking and steering is invaluable for snow driving.
