ABS question

Hi guys,

The one concern I have with the JK is the ABS on rough conditions. All the other cars I have driven with ABS don't brake so well on rough sand roads. Has Jeep "detuned" the ABS to perform in the rough?

Yeah, It allows more lock up in 4 wheel drive. All the systems (ABS, Stability, etc.) are all tuned differently for 2wd, 4wd high, and 4wd low.

And that is the beauty of computer controls. Knock on electronics all you want - but how else can you get one relatively simple system (ABS sensors, computer and brake actuators) performing so many duties (ABS, traction control/limited slip, stability control) in such a variety of conditions (highway, off-road).

Now all we need is to switch to electric drive - no complex transmissions, flat torque from 0 to max...

I agree completely. An electric drive system would be waaay better than a tranny. Someone say torque??? For those that don't know. . . go look at what drives a train.

Not to mention if the gas motor was used as a generator for those electric motors. "Honey. . . power's out again." "Oh, Ok, I'll go fire up our new 2020 XYZ Wrangler and plug the house in . . ."
