4WD Question - Hope this is the correct place
Hope this doesn't come across as a dumb question as I am new to the jeep thing, but here goes.
I will be traveling to a farm in a few weeks to hunt Coyotes. We have had rain here in KY like you never seen. So during my trip, I will have to tackle a incline that looks to be about 30 degrees maybe a little more. Not very steep, but a constant incline for about 100 yards to the top of a ridge.
The road appears to be smooth, and could be much dryer before I have to go up it. My question is what range of 4WD should I start the climb in? If the hill is dry when I arrive it should not be a problem at all. I am asking my question, assuming the hill might be wet when I go yote shooting.
I have seen the use of 4L 2nd, 3rd etc....Am I understanding this correctly to mean 4 low in 2nd and 3rd gear?
Basically what I would like to know is what low range should I attempt the hill in. Now mind you this isn't a bluff, but it could be very saturated, but appears to be quite smooth. I don't think there is any ruts anywhere, but I want to be on the safe side when I start up the hill as to not have to change gears in a 6-speed manual.
The vehicle is a 2005 Rubicon Unlimited equipped with the factory Goodyear MT/R tires...
Any help is appreciated. Thanks and have a good day.
