Poor traction

My Liberty saw it's first ice snow and is awful. Full or part time 4 wheel drive allow the wheel with no traction to just spin. Is the system that unsophisticated. Otherwise great truck. Can't hold candle though to my land cruiser or even a Kia. What think you?

Re: Poor traction

sounds like bad tires and a open diff, should have gotten a trac lok or something like it.

Re: Poor traction

i don't think he even has a liberty. or a driver's license for that matter. I love his post about his Liberty "Special Addition".

Re: Poor traction

You are all partly right. It turned out the rear axel was open. Tires were fine. Since I need the car for snow and ice I took it back and traded for a Rubicon. This had trac loc rear axel and dual dana axels with diff lock on both. This does not have a problem with snow and ice. Why the wise guy attitude of some on thyis board.

Re: Poor traction

No problem. I think that those who are not sophisticated in these things should be careful when they buy. Four wheel drive can mean a lot of different things.
The rubicon is something else.

Re: Poor traction

The lockers are not as good as the trac lok on Ice and Snow, you need one tire with less grip to give you traction, if both spin then your at mercy of physics. Just something to think about when driving in the snow.
