BARELY!!!! my neighbor got stuck in the 3' snow drift in a parking lot across the street from our street. He was getting hooked up to another diesel and I offered to pull him with the little frontier.

anyways the frontier moved the ram diesel just enogh for it to escape on its own power.

the question though is this: a friend was watching the pull, and cautioned me to take it easy as my rear axle was starting to bounce, at which time i let off. he said "be careful you dont wanna bend your frame" which left me puzzled.

can you damage your frame by pulling something along? i wasnt overrevving or hard snapping the line or anything like that. just soft and easy 2500-3000 rpm tugs on the line.

2-300lbs in the bed during the winter can help that. You still want to be very careful doing things like that. My uncle has a Chevy 2500HD with a plow that got stuck and I pulled him out. I put 300lbs in my bed, used 1st gear in 4lo, nice and easy.

I can personally attest a highly modified pathfinder cannot make it through 3 foot of snow. I think I spent about 3 hours digging myself out of that one....

I been on top of a trail that was 5 feet of snow.. but it was packed down, and when I slid off it took us 2 hours to recover me.. The lighter jeeps with wider tires floated on top much better then me.

When I had my Cherokee I had to pull out my buddys FJ60 on 37" boggers. It wasnt a pull either, but a super yank as in I had to back up 10 feet and hammer it! It nearly gave me whiplash, my dog was in the back seat and flew up into the front breaking the dashboard ashtray (he was okay). I though it was going to rip the tow package out but it held up. And rememer that Cherokees are unibody...
