Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

do you disable the QL when you get the tires rotated at discount tire or where they use a full lift?

YES when lifting all four tires off the ground.

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

I tore a 2 inch hole in a tire this weekend off-roading.

I disabled QL via uConnect setting and had it changed in no time, even used the scissor jack and a footer to a hi-lift jack to support the jack in the sandy location I was in.

The hi-lift would have been nicer of course, but the one available was locked securely in back of buddies jeep with no key. lol

Good idea using the high-lift jack support. I'll get one, the support, not the jack.

Off topic, what model tyre was it and was the hole in the tread of side-wall.

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

I agree, I also need to get. At least the hi-lift footer as that really was helpful.

I still have stock tires, the Goodyear fortera, if I recall correctly. And the hole is in the sidewall, just caught a rock the wrong way while traversing the water hole.

Now looking at nitto terra grabber as replacements all around, or at least a tire spec'd for all terrain.

The Goodyear Fortera while touted as a 4WD tyre is still a passenger tyre meaning bulging sidewalls, not good for rocks. If you want to minimise this happening again then LT tyres, like the terra grabbers, is the way to go.

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

Let's say your go to your tire guy for a 4 wheel rotation. You disable the QL once you park, turn the vehicle off, go in the shop and wait. The technician comes out and starts the vehicle to drive it into the bay. Is the QL still "locked"?

Yes the QL stays locked but automatically unlocks when the car gets up a bit of speed. Chances are the technician would not get up enough speed.
