Skinny winter tires(9.5" wide) run at normal psi are the best for snow/ice. You don't want a large footprint for snow/ice and want the higher psi. Our short wheel base and lightweight on larger tires would be a disadvantage in winter.

no special tool, socket should work. You unscrew it and move it(on the rod) either towards the front of the jeep or the back depending. I would mark its current location so you know the starting point, sharpie works well.

here is a link with a picture:

JeepinDad Only if you pulling something or need the torque I.E. you're stuck. Did it barely move when you had your wheels turned or straight? If you had your wheels turned all the way and it barely crawled that's what you are looking for, you 4x4 is working fine. I had to think about it for a second, my Jeep barely moves if turned all the way in 4x4, the work truck lurches. Sorry about that.

rafaelsimo I run 32" with a 2.5 lift. I just tried it. When I engaged in 4h it barely made an attempt to move, but when I engaged in 4L it responded really well. Is it better to run 4L over 4H.

rafaelsimo Thanks. Gonna do that now

JeepinDad Sure fire way to find out is from a stand still turn your wheels all the way to the left or right and go, if your Jeep lurches and pushes your 4x4 is working.

Best piece of advise I can give for driving in the snow/ice is slow down! Go easy on the brakes and go easy on the gas. Ease into turns and if you start to lose control keep your eye on where you want your Jeep to go and straighten her out.

TJ 98 on snow. General Questions

I decided to take my TJ on the road today because of the snow. The roads are terrible and there are about 4 inches on the ground. I engaged theTJ on 4x4 and hit the road and felt very shaky driving it I even spinned out of the road once. So, how do I know if the 4x4 is working properly?

Thanks
