I had to watch the video; thought you had to do a "self-recovery" with your winch :lol: That Jeep Compass Sport looked to be running the stock tires that are junk for about anything other than bare pavement; I just bought that vehicle in Trailhawk trim for my wife - it comes with much better tires for snow and off-road; I have actually been pretty impressed.

good feedback on the tires; I think that Toyo uses too hard of a rubber compound for those snow conditions - just my personal opinion from having Toyo M55 tires on my old ford - they carry a load great but traction was horrible on hard-packed snow.

If you really want to run Toyo's in snow they should be sipped but then may not last as long for summer use. I have Cooper Discoverer STT with very similar tread pattern to the Toyo M/T's and they have been great on hard-packed snow & ice - must be a softer compound...

Great videos; thanks for posting.

Don Thuren told me I should try running 30psi front 15psi rear on those Toyo's because of just that, the rubber being stiff on the Toyo's. And that you kinda want to do just like sand with them. I haven't tried it yet, but I eventually will.

So after we pulled out the couple in the video, we came across another guy in a SUV the next day, and were at it again.

After the two snow recoveries, I picked up the Factor55 Hitchlink 2.5 & a few soft shackles over there Black Friday sale.

Then, we had our first local recovery. I joined a local offroad recovery FB page to see if I could help anyone. Sure enough, young guy got himself stuck so we volunteered to give him a yank.

If you ever plan on an aftermarket sway bar make sure you mention it and the tent/rack to Don.
