3 Answers

....okay, does this one have traction control or anti-lock brakes? "locking up" what like screeeetch, type or gradually applies the brakes then?

speed differential between wheels sets it off into 'panic' mode applying the brakes?


Is it equipped with Jeep quadradrive? If it is then try changing the fluids in both differentials and don't forget the additive, it is very important.
