Questions about the Manual

Owner's Manual that is...

Does the Off Road package have a limited slip when the locker isn't engaged or is it open?

How bad is running a different sized spare on the front in an emergency (emergency constitutes having a different sized spare...)? H2 only

p211 Only install chains on the rear. I realize you don't want front only, but on 4x4 why not all 4? Is it just over sensitivity to stupid people tearing up their front wells?

p181 A-Track only works in L4 and if locker engaged below 3mph

p183 LSD is only on when in 2wd and VSC is turned off
also, what is LSD?
come to think of it what is VSC?

p185-6 Don't ever use the locker unless you really really need to, and then turn it off immediately. Basically, don't ever drive with it. Huh?

p186 Locker turns off when switching to H2 or H4
Does the locker work in H2 or H4 then? L4?

p187 Do not drive over 5mph with the locker on

p188 DAC only works in L4 below 15mph with the locker off
True? also 15mph in L4!?

Hill start is part of what systems? Is it always on or only with X,Y, not Z?
p194 only mentions no HS if the locker is on (seems odd unless HS only locks one brake to control rollback)

Layman's descriptions of how and when to use the systems are also welcome. I have like 15 years of wheeling experience, including Atlas II and front and rear lockers, but everything was Jeep based and not fancy electronic "idiot proof" systems. For example, my first test of L4 the thing flashed and beeped at me until it was maddening- of course I find out that means it was never in L4.

Depends on the size difference

p211 Only install chains on the rear. I realize you don't want front only, but on 4x4 why not all 4? Is it just over sensitivity to stupid people tearing up their front wells? You wont clear the UCA

p181 A-Track only works in L4 and if locker engaged below 3mph
A-Trac works in L4 locked or not

p183 LSD is only on when in 2wd and VSC is turned off
also, what is LSD? Limited Slip Differential
come to think of it what is VSC? Vehicle Stability Control

p185-6 Don't ever use the locker unless you really really need to, and then turn it off immediately. Basically, don't ever drive with it. Huh?
Liability issues go nuts

p186 Locker turns off when switching to H2 or H4
Does the locker work in H2 or H4 then? L4?
L4 Only unless you rewire

p187 Do not drive over 5mph with the locker on
Liability issues again

p188 DAC only works in L4 below 15mph with the locker off
True? also 15mph in L4!?
Correct

Hill start is part of what systems? Is it always on or only with X,Y, not Z?
p194 only mentions no HS if the locker is on (seems odd unless HS only locks one brake to control rollback)
No Idea mines 6 speed
