I counted to 21 once. Got arrested. Guess I should've waited until I got home.

Once so far I got high centered because my front end slid into a rut

I think that I used 4L once up a steep rock climb. Might have done it without, just didn't try. Luckily my locker works in 4H. The locker has saved me countless number of times

Is there some point of honor in not using 4 low?

My JK is in 4 low probably 50% of the time I'm off the bitumen. 4 low when towing my camper trailer up steepish tracks saves the transmission from overheating but generally it's just safer and more effective to use 4 low.

Uh, you mean today? I was in 4L and locked for most of the day today when our local jeep club went out for the Snowbowl run. Only stuck twice when high centered as even lockers don't help when they aren't touching the ground

4lo has saved my ass twice. At the same area lol. Huge ruts, water, steep decline to the left into a lake and a cornfield to the right. Lets just say I got out without tipping
