Well I know the Electronic Stabilty control works

We got a light dusting of snow this a.m. just enough to grease up the roads. I was coming around a corner doing about 25 I could feel the back end of the Jeep starting to come around so I started to steer into the skid (been about 8 yrs since I last owned a rear wheel drive car amazing how those instincts just kick in) before I could I hear the clicking of the antilock brakes (no I didn't touch the brake), the stability light comes on and the Jeep corrected course, a little disconcerting when it happened but cool none the less.

Yep great when it works when it's supposed too. Not when driving straight on dry roads after lifting your jeep. Definite pucker factor.

no kidding! not a straight road but I was coming through a cloverleaf the day after lifting mine and the ESP kicked in. Scared the snot outta me as I thought something just went drastically wrong with the lift.
