Well the mud came up to the top of my tires I was flinging mud everywhere and realized I wasn't going anywhere. Stopped panicking, hit the brakes, turned ESP off, and applied a little throttle and then floored it and I was out....nerve recking!

I've been curious...how much does turning off esp help? Does the braking diff work well?

That was the first time I used it. Before I turned it off I was STUCK, just flinging mud around and digging deeper. Turned it off and I was good...so looks like it works well!

Not sure of the link will work:

Essentially, turning ESP off gives as much power to the wheels as possible. With it on, the loss of traction in the mud would confuse the Jeep's computer and it would think it's slipping while traveling.

As an example, on QTII and QDII Jeeps, when in 4LO the ESP turns off automatically because the stresses the driver is likely to encounter over the terrain where 4LO is needed.

It doesn't substitute for locking diffs however, so us QT I and II guys still have to deal with power transfer between rear axle - front axle - or both axles — which can cause loss of power/traction versus those with locking diffs.

Thanks for the Video Nick. I'm familiar with ESP however I haven't seen any videos of qt1 people in a sticky situation with it on then turned off. One of us should make one of those. I've looked all over YouTube and haven't found on vs off when off roading. In theory it sounds good. I've turned it off on a muddy bumpy dirt road and it's seemed to help a lot.

The single rear 2" poly spacer from rusty's yields 1.5" of lift when you use it to replace the lower rear spring isolater.

Thanks man! And what 0321Nick said...when it's used in place of the coil isolator it comes out to 1.5". The Duratracs are awesome. They've exceeded my expectations. Pulled me out of the mud when I thought I was done for, never slip in the snow or ice, and are extremely quiet.

It was finally warm enough yesterday to do some install work haha thanks. I'm running out of ideas for mods. Next on my list is: floor matts, and window tint. Not sure what to do after...?

I preordered the hidden winch mount from Steel Armadillo.

Yeah I want a winch I just can't afford that set up at the moment.

On another note, I want to order a light switch panel, but where are you guys getting those custom switches that say "roof lights" and "rock lights" and "seat eject" ??

You can pick up the switches from Otrattw.com, they have a lot of options on their website or you can custom order over the phone. Check out their Facebook page, they post their newest designs on there.
