It really is nothing short of crazy just how much snow we've been getting this year. Normally, we get just enough to get out and play for a day and then it's all gone by the afternoon. That being said, I can't exactly say that the snow hasn't been a welcome sight to see especially being that it's so much fun to drive our Jeeps in it. And, being that we have so many Jeeps to choose from, we decided it was finally time to lock up Jane's hubs, shift her into 4WD and taker her out for a spin in the white stuff. For sure, it's nothing epic but in this short video, you'll get to see what it's like to wheel some old school cool both doorless and topless and under sky of falling snow. We hope you enjoy.


SPECS: Jane is a 1974 Jeep CJ-5 Renegade that is painted a factory Jetset Blue Metallic. She is running a factory AMC 304 V8 Engine mated to a T-15 3-Speed Manual Transmission and Dana 20 Transfer Case. Her axles are a Dana 30 up front with WARN locking hubs and a Dana 44 in the rear. Tires are currently 31x10.50R15 Cooper STT Pros and they're mounted on her original factory Mag aluminum wheels. A nice bonus is her WARN 8074 winch which she came with from the factory. Aftermarket products include a Rancho 2" lift, Rancho RS9000 shocks, a Holley Truck Avenger 470 Carburetor, Edelbrock Air Cleaner, MSD Distributor and Dynomax Exhaust System. Last but not least, her tub has been finished with Raptor Bed Liner.

Great video, I wish I could run mine right now, but way too much salt on the roads for that kinds of fun!

As always, Cindy did a great job shooting Jane having fun!

LOL!! It's almost a shame to think there are kids out there who will never know what it was like. So glad you enjoyed our video :cool:

Looks like a lot of fun.

Truth be told, it was kinda stupid to do being that it was so cold out but maybe it was because of it that it really was so much fun. :crazyeyes:

I hear ya, I would never have done this if it weren't for the fact that we live where we live. Glad you enjoyed our video :)

I could watch videos of Jane every day and never get sick of it.

LOL!! She really is a fun Jeep to wheel and to look at :)

Jane sure is a beauty!!! Awesome to see her out getting some snow on her tires!!

Thank you. I won't lie, I was really impressed at how well she did in the white stuff. Her Coopers really hooked up great. :yup:

Very cool video![emoji106] Jane’s blue color really pops with the snowy background.

Thank you. Her Jetset Blue really does look great in the snow. :cool:

I was literally on my way to get my daughter from grandmas and saw this come through. Pulled into a 7-11 parking lot, sent mom a text saying I’ll be about 9 minutes 30 seconds late. Sat and watched it right then and there.

That's so cool she did pretty well for her age can't wait till i find the CJ i'm looking for :)

She really did great and would have done even better if I let her.
