Diving on rain slick streets is interesting.
 
When you have a 4" lift and 33" mud terrains that don't grip rain slick roads too well it can be exciting.

Yup! Whenever I'm first to a red light or stop sign I can't help but wind it up and pop the clutch.

I have had to use 4WD a few times the jeep wanted to swap ends.

Do you have an auto or manual

Manual

Regeard? Cause I've never had to use 4wd in rain and I have 33x10.5 BFG KM2 with a 5 speed.

Insuring your tires are fully aired up will help a lot. The smaller the tire's footprint, the less likely it is to hydroplane.
