Stupid question.......
 
Hey guy's i know this is a stupit question but if you don't know i guess you got to ask. Ok there are two buttons one with tow/haul & then right next to it theres another button with a pic. of the back of a jeep with like two burn out marks behind it. what is that button & what does it do ( or) what is it for? that button says off so if you push it is it off or on when it lite's up/ is it a traction control button? when would i need to use it? I know when i put it in 4wd. that lite's up & my tow/haul light both come on. So are both buttons pretty much the samething? I pretty sure the tow/haul lowers your gears. does the traction control give you like a posi or limited slip? Thanks guys. Sorry for the stupit question. I didn't get know manual with it so i don't know what alot of things do. :o :confused: :thumbsup:

The great book of knowledge and wisdom in your glove box has all answers ;)

As you will find in your owners manual the tow haul just prevents overdrive.

btw, there are no stupid questions... just stupid people NOT THAT IM AN INFERING anything i am simply stating ;)

hopefully that helps some... sorry

No prob man!

I think Ive hit mine maybe like 10 times since Ive had the Jeep! Once to test it, some times at the track and some times in the snow when Im fooling around!

It basically helps you drive safer if you think about it...
