Brake application stops the airborne wheel from spinning throwing the power to the other wheel. 4wd is a misnomer...only two wheels are driven in any system.

Thats not really technically correct.
The computer can partially brake the spinning wheel, sending a percentage of torque to the laden wheel while retaining some available torque in preperation for the unladen wheel becoming laden again.
It doesn't behave like a switch.
Still not ideal in soft terrain situations.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Were some questions/answers removed at Jeep's request?

One of my questions and its answer is not in this thread or in the summary post.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

I asked why LED taillights were not implemented in the new WK2 and they said they were considering it for future applications.

I can't find my question or their response anywhere.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Maybe some questions/answers were lost when the thread crashed momentarily during the chat?
