noise when tires slip
 
Just recently purchased a 2005 GC. My son and I went out looking for mud last weekend and had a blast. I did notice that when we were in real slippery stuff and the tires were spinning a weird noise would happen sometimes. Seemed to happen when one or more wheels was slipping. I am hoping it is just the way the Quadratrac I uses the ABS brakes to slow the spinning wheel. Kind of a disturbing noise the first time you hear it. Never heard it except when we were in 4wd stuff. Does this sound normal?

Completely normal. As you suggest, it's the traction control system using the brakes to slow/stop the spinning wheel across the axle (mimicking a LSD).

Yep, these things are BORING in the slick stuff... I went to a parking lot with a fresh coat of snow 2 years ago (I miss snow) and tried to have a little fun, wasnt going to happen. 4 low disables the traction control and I never put it in 4 low but that should help with the fun a bit.
