I'll try to keep it short and simple.
Just added a 07 JKUR to my collection two weeks ago.
Put 35's on and finally got out yesterday to some local spots to test her out and compare it to my 97.
The first thing I noticed was when I would get on the gas and try to drift around some of the gravel corners, (even with the ESP "off", yellow marker on the dash) it would die out on me and send me pushing with my front tires. I am also using the 6-speed manual.
I figured with the traction control switched off there would be no issues. But time and time again I would feel the throttle die out and the car automatically braking and adjusting.
Yes this may come in handy one day on the street, but it drove me crazy and had me very disappointed at the end of the day. I just wish it drove off-road more like my TJ, free of any computer trying to drive for me.
Does anyone know of any write-ups or DIY's on how to fix this issue?
Thanks for your time guys.
