Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Sorry I was too late to the action. My question was already asked, and answered about the future of Diesels in the American market anyway. Thank you to the Jeep Engineers for creating a wonderful vehicle then taking the time to talk to us crazies. We know that you don't build these vehicles for the enthusiasts, but it's nice to know that you will listen to our ranting on occasion. And thank you to everyone that set up this chat. I'm sure it took a bit of work to get it organized, and it is appreciated. Now if only we could get the lawmakers to pull their heads out of their collective rears and get some Diesels back in our market!

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

We bought our 2002 Grand Limited fully loaded new. We have never been stuck anywhere, which I think is partly to having limited slip on both front & rear axles.

We are planning on purchasing a new 2011 fully loaded Grand. I see limited slip rear axle.

Is there any option that offers front axle limited slip on the 2011?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

I could look in on the Chat from my iPhone just long enough to pop my question, and then read the thread this morning. I want to join in the praise of Scott, the engineers and who ever else made it happen. Good questions and a valiant effort by the engineers to cope with them. Congrats to all!

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Also Homer to answer that question the answer is no.. It was brought up in the chat. The engineers felt it wasn't needed and the system is beyond capable and the best they have had yet they say...

Another question:

Since there's no more front ELSD in QD2 for 2011, how is front axle lock achieved while rock crawling uphill and one wheel becomes airborne?

Love my 06 WK in the snow. I look forward to it every winter. The new select-trac may have sold another GC for me.
