I had a XK with quadadrive II, by far the best snow/ice vehicle I have ever had, especially once I paired it with KO2s. My JL is good, the traction control system helps a lot. While I don't feel that I need anything else, it is just no where near the level that the XK with QDII was. I would expect that the 4 auto would be a help in closing that gap, but I suspect your WJ is still going to be better. The only other thing to help is the JL's traction control system may be better, but I still don't think that would get it to match the WJ. (I believe the WJ ended in 2004? I may be mistaken but that is a long time ago in terms of tech development).All I'm really trying to do is get as close to the best snow and ice performance as I get with my current WJ with quadratrac, a true full time system. It's hands down the best vehicle I've had for winter conditions, point and shoot it just goes anywhere. I'm not big on the idea of my new 60k wrangler having trouble in areas where my 5k WJ gets through.
