3) 2WD, AUTO LSD... see stronger LSD action? (this would also be the same as H4)
4) A-TRAC... see the elevated tire move maybe just a bit before A-TRAC matches it to the other tire in back.
5) Rear Locker... no movement except the same as opposite tire.
I need to come to El Cajon maybe this week one day... how far away is that spot and would yopu be able (and game) to go? You too Crom!

for a map. I couldn't find that exact place Doug was at but I did look around the area and there seems to be a number of dirt trails.
Hey guys heres some help finding this place, this pic shows the entrance to Barret Honor Camp off of Lyons valley rd. The start of the Pancake rock trail is about 1/2 a mile west from this "meeting place" on the right hand side.. Its real easy to go right past the trailhead & not realize it, one clue is there maybe a couple vehicles parked along the entrance , alot of hikers go up for the view, like I've mentioned before this is not a trail for novices ( I know you guys aren't) more for the reason of the trail being pretty narrow & steep with little or no room for error . Its do-able but def. jeep trail & to be honest I don't want to hit it until I get some armor as in sliders at the minimum... I will say this, the first 50ft off the pavement & the first obstacle will have you muttering to yourself whether or not you want to or should you continue , it only gets worse from there in more than a couple of spots, this is where the sliders come in, if you have the skills & the armor to continue you are in for a somewhat short but def. challenging, adrenalin rush of a ride up the hill with awesome views from the top of pancake rock....
