    When I'm in snow and stuck, I experience severe binding of the drive train.
    I'm now sure what’s up. I'm in 4x4 and
    all tires are spinning. I’m only in
    about 1 1/2’ of snow. Alarms are heard
    like the traction control is engaged.
    The engine bogs down and everything seems bound up. I let off the gas and can start moving again
    but then the same thing happens. Tires
    start spinning and then bogs down. I’m
    stuck. I’ve tried disabling traction
    control. I’m new here and any help is
    appreciated.

    Did you try going in reverse??

    Was that 1.5 FEET of snow? That's a lot of snow to try and plow through. Not sure you'll ever be able to make it thru it unless you can drive OVER it.

    Was your locker engaged?

    Are you turning the wheel hard to either side? That will bind it for sure. If you're not turning the wheel, you have an issue I'm unfamiliar with.

    To disable the traction control , did you just push the button , or push and hold for 5 seconds ?

    These produce different results .
