Not yet but I just bought 2 sets of kind of cheap coil type chains for my Latitude 4X4 in case our driveway gets slippery. Snow is in the forecast tomorrow and on the weekend. Will post back how the Jeep does and if I use the chains. I have snow tires but haven't had them put on yet.Has anyone out there used snow chains on their latitude?
I never would have expected to see that in the manual. I've always heard that it's best to chain up all 4 wheels when running 4WD or AWD. To me it makes sense that they would all be the same diameter then. It looks like Jeep is specifying this in case people put on big chains with not much clearance and rip things up because of lack of clearance. Not sure why they say to only put the chains on the drive wheels. If I'm having trouble getting out of someplace because of ice and snow, then I will definitely have it locked in 4WD or have Snow mode selected.The owners manual states that snow chains should only be used on the front wheels and only on certain sizes of tyres.
Interestingly, on the same page it mentions a 2 speed power take off unit.
