Traction control

Hi Everyone, just bought our first jeep and this is my 1st time here. With winter on it's way I was wondering if the traction control should be turned off when in 4wd.

normally no. BUT if you are stuck and you cant get out, and you have the 4wd lock on, definitely turn traction control off.

Leave it on even with 4WD LOCK on, if you get stuck, turn off TC only, it will allow wheel spin and that will keep your tread clean so you can get traction.
