Awesome videos! In the third video where you stopped and started again on the incline - I could see the Compass struggling there. Was it locked in 4WD (50/50)? I can see how it not being able to lock into posi can quickly become a burden compared to other Jeeps.

None the less, you made it up the hill in the end. :)

4WD locked with ESP full off.
But the sand was too soft by then, the first attept (before filming) of such stop-and-go was successful as the sand was "undigged" and more firm then.
But this video convinced me, that FDI does not have rear differencial lock ... unfortunately.

PS. With a little speed this hill was no problem at all, with or without using 4WD lock or ESP.

I'm going to be picky - but I assume you mean Traction Control (TC) was off, or was Electronic Stability (ESP) off too?

I ask because I hit the ESP button, and it turns off the TC. If I fish tail in the snow/ice, the ESP still kicks in and straightens out the Jeep. Apparently you can hold the ESP to turn that off too - but I heard Canada considers that a safety thing, and therefore the computer won't let me. (I don't mind too much.)

I hold down the ESP-button for 7-8 seconds untill text "ESP OFF" was displayed on dashboard.
It should mean, that TC is off and ESP is full off (at such low speed, at least).

Yeah. Mine won't do that. I can hold it down until the cows come home, but it never says that. The TC light on the dash lights up when I hit it. That's it.

Anyway. I went off topic with this. Awesome videos as I said before. :)
