  1. JL Rubi - driving at highway speed on snow/ice/wet with 4H

    I disagree. If the road is wet and I have to make a sudden maneuver where I decelerate quickly and then have to accelerate I want to know that all 4 wheels are under power - whether it's 30 mph on snow or 65 mph on a wet interstate. I get that the Rubi system isn't as smart at sensing slippage...
  2. JL Rubi - driving at highway speed on snow/ice/wet with 4H

    I don't disagree at all. I'm a physician and have seen my fair share of nightmares roll into the ER from traffic accidents.
  3. JL Rubi - driving at highway speed on snow/ice/wet with 4H

    That they do. I'm sure you see the same thing there in Oregon that we've seen for years in Colorado. Snowy pass and we're coming home from skiing doing maybe 45-60 and people whip by you at 70 or above.
  4. JL Rubi - driving at highway speed on snow/ice/wet with 4H

    My Defender and my Disco both have high centers of gravity and I drive them at highway speeds on wet/snowy roads all the time. Anyone who owns a LandRover does this routinely (whether RangeRover, Disco, Defender, LR3, LR4); they're all full time.
  5. JL Rubi - driving at highway speed on snow/ice/wet with 4H

    I think what I'll likely due is save the Rubi for just offroading and use our LR or Subaru for regular driving. I just don't care for the Sahara model at all. Thank you to everyone here for your input.
  6. JL Rubi - driving at highway speed on snow/ice/wet with 4H

    I meant novice at knowing how the 4WD system on the new Jeep works. I've driven on plenty of snowy icy roads at highway speeds MANY times in Colorado, here in NY and Maine. I'll admit the first few times coming down I-70 from skiing in the mountains was a bit unnerving. But 2 decades later and...
  7. JL Rubi - driving at highway speed on snow/ice/wet with 4H

    I'm a novice but I'd tend to disagree. Having all wheels powered on slippery highway speeds seems crucial. I think that's why Subaru, LandRover and others choose to have full time AWD. I just like the peace of mind knowing that if I'm on a slippery surface then the truck is sensing which wheels...
  8. Members old and new -- check in and wave hello!

    Hi all. I'm a former Rubi owner. Had a JKU several years back. Sold it for a LandRover (which was our 5th LR). We drive LR and Subaru and we get offload several times a year. Never much rock crawling but we take back trails and do some fording to get to out of the way camping spots. We're from...
  9. JL Rubi - driving at highway speed on snow/ice/wet with 4H

    Hello all, new to the forum; not new to Jeep. I've owned a JKU Rubi several years back, but mostly we've owned LandRovers and now Subaru. I understand that the Rubi doesn't have SelecTrac and I know I could drop into 4H on snow/ice for in-town or neighborhood driving, but what about highway...
