My buddy in a JK did best with ESP on, and I'd say no 4x4 lock. Of course Mike was getting pretty western about it, kicking it out of 4x4 as he came to a sharp turn, pull the parking brake, slide the ass end around the turn, drop the brake, toss it back into 4x4 then floor it and let ESP figure out how to accelerate out of the turn. Me, I just left it 4x4 with my foot to the fan and waited for a snow birm to turn me. Yeah I screwed up my alignment but nothing 20 minutes in the garage with a pipe wrench and a measuring tape couldn't sort out.
I'm still holding to my "we'll see" position. I want to go, but haven't been to work in a week, think I maybe should put in an appearance. Before I get flamed again, I'm being laid off and I've spent the last couple of days doing interviews, monday and tuesday I was in classes my employer required.
Ultimately, I want to go but I am concerned that I'll break something. Normally not a big deal, just an excuse to upgrade then. But without a sure employment opportunity just yet I think I should maybe try to avoid breaking stuff.
