Just to clarify - I could 'move' the Jeep. I probably could have gotten out on my own. BUT I would have trashed the wheels on that wall. I took out a couple of good gouges as it was, but I would have...

Live from a stuck Jeep

The sunny part of the hill was like grease - super slick mud.

My buddy with a Tundra got me off of the wall. Once I got away from the wall I could move again.

Towing, what drive mode?

In that case - I'd just turn Eco off

I tow with mine quite a bit - I only manually shift to avoid braking on down grades

Re: OFF ROAD II and ADV tech packages

I suggest that on the test drive, you put it in the nearest pond. If you make it out, it has ORA II. If not, have then order you a new one.

Re: exceptable transmition temp's towing

Mine get to 195-205 when towing pretty fast. I have a bunch of toys so I tow between 1000-5500lbs often. Seems to get up to that temp and stabilize.
