Traction control VS CDL being locked video

I know this video features a D2 but still thought you guys would like to see it.
Enjoy.

Nice video Justin.


But, it is not a hard sell to say gears are better than electrics to a Series kind of guy.

I know but a lot of people don't understand what goes on with the transfer case when it's open Vs lock

Don't think many understand Diffs either

My DII threw an "unlikely wheel speed" code last week on the highway during the snow storm in Vermont. That caused the SLABS ECU to disable the traction control. The next day It took several attempts to climb to the top of a short driveway covered in snow that had been previously climbed by a Honda Pilot.

An OBDII scanner and the locking diff should have been standard equipment on all of the Discos.

Love my CDL, makes daily driving on compact snow & ice less noisy.... it reduces the buzzing from the traction control by 90%

I Recall a classic post where someone jacked up their truck and reported horrified that they must have broken something because when they rotated one wheel, the other wheel rotated the opposite direction. Josh?
