Off-Roading Question

So I have one question. I have an 05Wk 4.7 with QTII. When I go off-roading, I put the vehicle in 4Low via chrome T-handle. Now heres the question, when in 4low do i turn the traction control off or leave it on?

I may be mistaken but I think when you put it in 4lo it automatically turns off traction control

X2... leave it on.... Since you don't have lockers, this is the best bet for keeping traction maximized....

We are talking in 4low right? (see post 1)

With QDII doesn't 4low it turns the Traction and ESP off....?

That was my impression....

Any-one concur?

For QDII, ESP has a 'partial-disable' mode which is performed by either pushing the ESP button (little skidding car with word "off" below it) once, or by putting the transfer case into low range. In either high or low range, you can 'fully-disable' the ESP by holding the ESP button for about 5 seconds with the Jeep stationary. The words "ESP OFF" will appear in the EVIC window.

I assume this is the same setup for QTII, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I dunno I only know QD2 so I made sure to specify so no one can tell me I'm wrong about QT2.

You're right but we're not talking about ESP disable..

We are saying that in 4low, the traction defaults to off... so you would have no way of "choosing/selecting" to have it on or off...

I know in QDII you wouldn't want ABS based traction control when the axles are locked together....but QT2 it would make sens rot have it on to aid in wheel slip due to not having lockers...

With QT2, putting it in 4 Low disables everything with the ESP except for the limited slip feature which uses the brakes to limit tire slip.

It automatically disables everything besides the limited slip feature when you shift into 4 low. No need to mess with anything. The only way to completely disable it would be to pull the abs fuse.

This.

Mine (4.7 with QT II) turns the TC off. I only had to use 4lo a handful of times, but I left the TC Fully off while not in 4lo also.

I HATE computers telling me what/how to drive.
