What tires were on that rig in the second pic that allowed it to stick to the underside of the planet like that?

Likely because this blizzard occured in barely freezing temperatures, so they got wet, heavy snow. Very tough to drive in packed deep wet snow, moreso with all season tires.

Possibly, but I'm from MI... all we have is wet heavy snow lol. I'm not criticizing, I'm just thoroughly suprised it couldn't get out of that.

Idk man its hard to explain why i couldnt cause if you take a look at the first picture you see the snow covered the entire wheel/housing. On the left side of the jeep wasnt as bad so i squeezed through there and started the jeep, placed it in snow mode and floored it lmao. The last two pictures it might have looked like i shoveled but i didnt. Simply squeezed through the passenger side and moved over to the drivers seat and just tried to get it freed/out for a good 20 mins.

i know i didnt take a full picture before i got in the jeep to show you a fill view but if you take a look at the right side and see where the amount of snow is and place your imagination of that surrounding the entire jeep, its gotta be easy to see why i couldnt get out. Im 6ft 3" and the snow that i stepped in today surrounding the jeep was easily up to my knee if not more.

After i got out and said screw it cause i didnt feel like shoveling, i could kinda see why i couldnt get out and instead kept on being shifted to the left side, hence why theres a pathway to what seems like I shoveled in the last two pics, i didnt like i said, its just due to when i was attempting to drive out the jeep just kept shifting to the left evenly.
Anyway, it looks like when i was attempting to drive out the snow basically lifted up the jeep up and left the two front tires spinning while the back ones were pushing hard as well. I kept backing up and flooring it while going forward and i was making progress but eventually i just stopped and was just be shifted to the left not matter what i did. And due to another vehicle being to the left of me, i didnt wanna continue and end up hitting it.

Yep, deep packed wet snow is a mouvement killer. Once the Jeep gets jakced up and looses traction, you're done.

BTW, Snow Mode is no good in those conditions because you need power, and Snow Mode takes out 1st gear. It's meant for driving in light to moderate dry snow accumulations, not deep packed snow. You might have gone farther in Sand/Mud Mode, maybe, but that packed wet snow is unforgiving.

Use ERS and force the jeep to use 1st gear while in snow mode, in my experience snow mode doesn't work the best in deep snow since it really limits the wheel spin, sand/mud mode works well in 4 High when in deep snow.

I think snow mode is best for highway speeds... slip and spin prevention and all... not so much a "stuck in snow" mode
