Yep, it is a truly *ucked system Jeep use. The torque management in particular is atrocious in just how invasive it is. Doesn't matter what power the car is rated at....it determines how much and when you get any of it. And that alone makes it more dangerous than if they left everything alone in the first place. I am liking my WK2 less and less each day TBH and if I'm going to keep it then stuff the warranty and get a tune me thinks.

sounds to me like your mate is flooring it in low range and hitting 40kmh and the car kicking in , exactly the same as what i tried . never drive in anything other than just sand mode now and never had that issue pop up again

I definitely felt the car holding back, sense of it not going anywhere when I left it in Lo and flooring it for a good 25km on the softsand beach. You can even smell the burning in the cabin. I figured from this point Lo should rarely be used only to get out of a bogged situation.

My 2015 diesel has done it twice up at byfield national park. Both in high range sand mode and one of the times it went into neutral after it cut the power and came up with low oil pressure on the dash.

Sounds like a pretty ordinary 4x4 system? Sitting on the rev limiter going up a dand dune is how it gets done 🤬

It's not just a jeep thing. My work ute is a new 79 series cruiser and the esp on that will still cut power to the engine when the traction control is off and to make matters even worse the traction control turns itself back on when you hit 50kph. The new hiluxes are the same, as soon as the tail steps out of line power is killed. And on a mine site where it is frequently muddy it makes them terrible to drive. And let's not even mention the abs on a muddy road.

Yeah I hear you Spoondog, this bullshit is now standard practice with all makes. The days of fitting go fast bits to the engine are gone I reckon, more a case of hacking the computer to give you back your car.
