I have heard the term trac-loc thrown around a little. Can anyone tell me what it is?

It uses clutches to transfer some power from the wheel with no traction to the wheel with some traction. It works ok with no brake modulation in most instances. If you are off-road and find that you are getting no traction, you can gently apply the brake at the say time as giving your KJ some gas. This will in effect transfer some power to the wheel that is not slipping. If you are approaching an obstacle that you feel you will need extra traction ( low speed-4WDLO ), you can actually set the parking brake on two to three clicks and then just worry about applying the throttle. Just remember to release the parking brake when you have sleared the obstacle. Works great on steep climbs!
