Re: So yeah I got stuck in the snow...

I keep my traction control turned off. It cuts my power if it spins when I red light race, it cuts my power when I pull out on a wet road and hammer down, and it blows in snow. I don't need traction control.

Re: So yeah I got stuck in the snow...

Can traction control kick back on automatically? It seemed like when I turned it off it would come back on by itself.

Those wheels and tires look good. As of right now im going for Duelers hopefully within the next few weeks when I get some money saved. My brother paid like 750 installed but he always has a larger tire for his Ram, im hoping I can stay in the low 600's for them.

When I press the button mine stays off until I shut the vehicle off then restart it, and the traction control is back on again.

Re: So yeah I got stuck in the snow...

FYI 4 Lo is the worst thing you can do in the snow. its goot too much torque and will break your tires free instead of letting them get grip.

You want to use 4Lo when rock crawling, in the mud, or towing a boat out of a boat launch or pulling a stump or something. not in the snow.

All UK WK's seem to come with Goodyear Wrangler HP AW in 245/65 17" on the LTD.

They are useless, and mine will be replaced with General Grabber AT2's in the very near future

It will turn on when you restart the car or you push the button again.


You can just push the button and shut if off or you can hold the button down until you hear a tone (which is better) and it would shut all the way off.

I don't know, I had used 4lo in the snow when 4hi couldn't do it. However, I would rock the car before I would use 4lo
