This is a pretty common scenario here in the mountains of western Montana. People with steep icy driveway usually keep a barrel of sand at both the bottom and top. When it gets too icy, simply go to the barrel and throw down some grit.
If you're just playing, diamond tread chains, studded tires or aired-down snow-rated tires are your best bets, but there is a point where steep and slick is just plain dangerous, especially if you hit it hard with lots of momentum and don't make it. A runaway Jeep sliding out-of-control back down an icy slope can really bring the pain.

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.
I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)
