Hello guys, I must say it was fun. I did get stuck a countless number of times. I'm running a pretty worn pair of falken rocky mountains ats's. With having 2 wheel drive I noticed the fastest ways I got stuck were when the traction control kicked in(are you supposed to hold the button for 5 seconds and override that before you offroad)it slowed me down and my truck just bogged. I do not have the e locker by the way. My friend in his 98 Grand Cherokee pulled me out several times. I believe his is all wheel drive.
Now when I did manage to unstick myself I noticed to keep the truck moving once I turned the traction control off I was almost bouncing off the rev limiter. Yet every time I relaxed the throttle to keep it away from red line I'd bog and not continue moving forward. Should I avoid this kind of action?
Now onto another question. My rear inner fender liners I guess got saturated in mud. Now one is hanging down onto the rear wheel the other is loose as well. Should I just take these off? How important are the liners. I guess I'll probably have to replace them if I don't cause I think the part with the clips ripped off.
Lessons learned today
1. 4 wheel drive is better then 2
2. To maximize 2 wheel potential invest in better tires then all terrain streets
3. Always have someone with you to pull you out.
4. ITS FUN AS HELL PLAYING IN MUD
5. I'm guessing a rear locker might help.
6. I figured as much shit talking as i hear about 2 wheel drive+mud=stopped at oriellys and picked up that tow strap smartest thing ever!!!
Any help of advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thats not just mud above the tire thats the inner fender hanging down. I tried to push it up no luck
MY SAVIOR lol That thing pulled me out so many times
