Both Hypertec and Diablo are well respected companies in the tuning world, and I myself run a Hypertec Max Energy to the tune of 26hp and 26ftlbs over the stock tune. That's on my 3.7.

The Diablo however can do custom tunes so that opens things up more...

Yes. Get an SRT. Most if not all electronic nannies are off in track mode.

Doesnt matter what i do, which option i pick (snow, mud, sand), i cant turn this stupid ****ing stability control off. Not even in sports mode!

I cand slide, drift, anything. It sounds like shit, and its braking and ruins all the fun for me.

WHAT CAN I DO???? pleasr help me turn this off. I will sell my car in 2 years when my lease is over if i cant. I wouldve NEVER bought this car (and i absolutely loved it till now), if i knew i couldnt turn off traction/stability control. NEVER!

Im so dissapointed in Jeep its not even funny. Used to own 04 grand cherokee and it let me do anything i want. What is this shit????!

Please if anyone knows how to completely disable this retarded option, let me know. Im willing to pull fuses and ignore the christmas lights on my dash. I cant stand this screeching noise my car makes when i wanna slide a little.
I tried this in my 2013 last night, traction controll off, sport mode, and full throttle whipping around in a circle. I tried it many times with great success. It still wants to help you regain control but just go off and on the throttle while your having fun and it will go round and round or even just drifting corners.
I'm also a bad parent and had my kids in the car so I keep it reasonable.

Re: Extremely Pissed. Traction/stability control in snow.

I've noticed that sand mode in the snow gets you better tire spin than sport.

Sport seemed to want to nanny just a tad bit. Sand seemed to almost totally let the tires spin.

Re: Extremely Pissed. Traction/stability control in snow.

The dash button doesn't fully disable it. IIRC there is a way to fully disable it, you might want to further investigate that.

No I got it. Best believe I got what you ment. I was just letting you know the tunes are from very well respected companies. I even said they are canned tunes but I guess I didn't simplify it enought for you

Re: Extremely Pissed. Traction/stability control in snow.

haha its funny you say all this because i feel the same way but not to the extent of selling the truck back or ending lease, i also had a 04 JGC and it was a blast in the snow, now theres too many computers etc interring with my fun in the snow,
