Then last guy in the Chevy truck kinda looks like my work truck and it's probably something I would do.

Your right i don't know how you guys deal with it,i flat hate it. People in these parts do not know how to deal with snow just heat. Now i see why so many of you guys are moving south.

Happy New Cold Year

I just meant it as a joke bash,I'm sure my 4X4 would have slid just as easy on that ice.

We deal with it because that's just how it is and there is not much you can do about it.

I was stationed at Ft. Carson, which is in Colorado Springs (where this happened) and this sort of thing is nothing new there. What I remember happening is it would warm up just enough during the day to just start to melt, then the temp would drop like a rock around 3:00 or so, and everything would turn to glass. Then, if you get any kind of snow on top of that you are done. My then wife (now ex) lost it into another vehicle on that sort of crap but she wasn't ticketed or found at fault. The reason that guy at the end was cussing and slamming his door was he probably doesn't have full coverage insurance. Unless things have changed there, those sort of accidents were considered no fault due to the conditions, so everyone is on their own. If you have liability insurance only, you are screwed. Pretty sure most places are like that.

Did you see that the only vehicle to make it up the hill was a lifted Jeep Wrangler! Just like mine.

Driving on ice is called skill even though most up here don't have that.

Nice Jeep BFB.

Now from the looks of that Rubber tire loader, I believe I could have worked that loader out of that mess.

my mom lives on a very steep hill, when I was living there I saw stuff like this many times throughout every winter, if we heard a car go by the house we would run to the Front Window, and the most exciting ones where the Near-Misses,, is he going to hit, is he, is he, is he, No wow that was sOoo close LOL

Hey, if one vehicle got up through that mess........glad it was the
Jeep !

Had an IH Scout 2, several yrs ago, that I tried something like that
in a local park, deserted because of that type weather, and once I got
just a bit of momentum, it crawled on up fine, and it was a fair bit
steeper than that hill looked to be. But ice certainly does not
discriminate; 4WDs are just as frictionless as anyone, even though lot
of their drivers think otherwise, as viewed on that video........

Yep, what a lot of people don't think of is that 4WD or not the brakes work the same. If you are stopped and sliding downhill it doesn't matter. Most accidents on ice aren't because someone couldn't go, it is because they couldn't stop.

Actually, BFB's looks like a TJ, not a YJ ... which would make it more like mine, even though mine's not yellow.
