You know you drive a Jeep when you have the more capable vehicle, counsel someone in a Blazer to caution, and end up recovering the Blazer from a large puddle and towing it through deep sand to the road to be flat-bedded away for around 1300 dollars in repairs.
Funny that it was my boss too.

The bulk of the metal in my jeep is much higher off the ground.. thus my front axle is the only thing potentially setting off the sensor..

I've heard of people attaching neodymium magnets to the undercarriage to help set off the sensors

In SC when on a bike, it is legal to come to a stop at a red light then proceed. Wish the same was true in the Jeep....

Ummmm no. You can go places a powerstroke could only get to by helo, but a 250 even in 2wd would pull your Jeep with all 4 of its wheels spinning helplessly....

I dunno man. I didn't think so either, but like I said. It is not the numbers, it is how quickly and efficiently the straight engine makes torque. I think there is a video somewhere of a show called "Stuntbusters" And they pitted an XJ against a Ram. And the XJ won for that very reason. According to that vid, the wrangler has a dana 60 rear, and 44 front.

Instead of telling me I am wrong, tell me why I am wrong? I am all for learning, and if that entails being proved wrong so be it. I would rather be humble, than ignorant on the subject!
