Yup, adjusting the driving technique is the cheapest. Your situation in that photo has the most vehicle weight on opposite corners, so the two wheels with the least weight on them (therefore the least traction) are on different axles. Without lockers, or perhaps even limited slip, those un-weighted tires spin and you have zero wheel drive.

Disconnecting the sway bar(s) will give your suspension a little more movement and might have been all you needed for that situation. I haven't gotten around to that modification, and have only wished for it a couple of times over several years of trails.

Can you hear the silence?
