^^this.....if you got it.
For sure - I loved that feature in my KJ. Select-Trac is the NP-242, IIRC. The WK is nice and all, but it'd be nice to get it into 2wd for shenanigans.
I still have the Yukon (2003), and that has NO stabilitrac/TCS. I did a perfect donut, nice and slow, in my mother-in-law's court this week. It was beautifully elegant, like watching an elephant ice skate. My 6 year old absolutely loved it. The big pig is great for them!
It's just an awesome winter pastime. I actually got my WK to do them, with it in park hold down the ESP button for 5 seconds and it should fully turn it off. Then go for it, mine with the 3.7 could do one if there was enough snow/ice.
Ah, I think that's where I messed up - I didn't have it in park when I tried to completely disable it. Looks like I have homework on the commute home this evening
Pull the ABS fuse.
Too much work.
I just 1 wheel wonder it all winter long unless I want to have fun then I will lock the rear ARB.Worked for me for 30 years of driving with most in South Dakota in the middle of nowhere.
I'm just to lazy to lock the front hubs in for 4wd.
Well that subscription renewal went well. I also got 3 months free along with it.
They Say: I don't talk to nor keep in contact with anybody.
I say: My Sprint and AT&T accounts/activity would like to have a word with you...
Oh, and screenshots.
I'm old school when it comes to driving in snow, like Troy I one wheel it until I really need to lock it in, drove for years 2 wheel drive pickups back and forth to work and on the farm, never needing 4x4.
So while some lock theirs in first of October and back out in April Fools Day, mine hardly ever gets locked in ( for driving on the highways )
I also "1-wheel wonder" until the blizzards come through. What I was saying is that that type of 4wd is not better than rear-wheel drive most of the time in normal winter driving.
My girlfriend has a Pontiac Torrent with AWD and I actually prefer it to my Jeep for most winter-weather driving. And I've also driven a friends Subaru with the "symmetrical AWD" in snowy highway conditions. That thing seems to be just stuck to the road.
And yes, it's mostly about tires. When my General ATs were newer, the Jeep simply chugged through everything. (even with the open rear diff)
Ya this conversation makes me miss my old subaru impreza. That thing was superglued to the road even in blizzards.

Subaru's are crazy good in the slickery stuff. I've got an 01 Outback and it's really good except no ground clearance. One of the best vehicles I ever had in the snow was a 77 pinto. Four speed manual, manual steering 2liter carbed (didn't even have a radio) used to take that thing hunting up in the Poconos and northern tier of PA.
Wishing everyone a SAFE and HAPPY Holiday Season.
Yep. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
It's only good(holidays that is) with a fridge full of beer(or cooler) and the cell phone turned off.
I get to spend my christmas with my parental-inlaws, my recently-having-given-birth mentally insane niece, her junkie thieving felon jobless boyfriend is in the area (who may or may not have an illicit firearm in his possession still,) 2 monster and nutball dogs, and 20 hours of driving.
yay, me. I'd rather be home repairing the recently flooded basment, eating leftovers.
Sounds like a great group of people.
Take the dogs and run! At least they can be trained!
For me I will be working in the clean room over the next week. 11am-4am Sun-Tues.
