Heres some pics of wheelin last weekend...and yes, this is April 16th...with snow. I did figure out that I have a limited slip differential in the rear though. I think its a part of the towing package.

If you have QD2 which I thought you did then you have front and rear electronically controlled lockers. Pop her into 4lo and claw!!! It is extremely capable. You will find that your WK is more capable than your XJ. Ground clearance is the limiting factor most of the time.

My XJ has a welded rear end and a lockrite locker up front so it goes places. And yes I do have QD2, thats pretty fricken awesome! Im assuming the lockers only engage in 4lo?

i don't believe it's lockers it's it like a abls system that engages brakes on the spinning wheel to allow power to the wheel with traction? but yes it should engage in 4lo

What you are describing is QT2. QD2 has ELSD (Electronic Limited Slip Differential) front and rear, which according to Jeep engineers is more locker than limited slip. The diff will 100% lock.

Ive really noticed the rear locking up, but the front, not so much. Perhaps thats why my service 4wd light is on!

Ya you might want to get that fixed! I had that problem a while ago. Ended up being my front diff wire harness came unplugged. But other guys have had the solenoid fail. Easy fix, just time consuming!

Yeah, I think im just gunna get it plugged in and get some codes. My ABS and BAS lights are on, my traction control light is on, and there is a message that says service 4wd system. Also my cruise control has been disabled. Nothing to do with the lift though, as I have had it for about a year now and didnt have problem until a few months ago.

Any suggestions?

Where did you take those pics at? The Wife and I went out Beacon Hill rd on the 16th. It wasn't very bad, just enough soft stuff to enjoy.

This is a trail going up to the bluff on cliff drive. Very fun. Have you lifted your jeep?

Yeah, finally got it in the air, nothing crazy just a two inch zone lift on 33s. I tried to upload some pics but they were two large.
