Jeep 4×4 Systems Explained

by Martin Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

Not all four-wheel-drive systems are created equal. This is why Jeep puts its vehicles through a battery of tests in some of the most inhospitable locations on the planet so you can feel confident when driving in a rain or snowstorm or when off-roading with like-minded friends. Jeep’s 4×4 systems and its robust suspensions have been designed to tame all kinds of on and off-road hazards. So choose an all-weather-capable Jeep Brand 4×4 system to master any terrain and help feed your passion for adventure.


Can my Jeep handle driving in the mud?

Driving in muddy conditions can be misleading; you never know how deep it is or what lies under it. You have to get out and use a stick to measure how deep the mud or water is. Jeep 4×4 vehicles come with sealed electrical systems, their air intake is raised to help keep water out, and skid plates are available for additional undercarriage protection. Driver tip, keep your Jeep in a higher gear to keep the tires from spinning. Let the tires’ tread do the work.

Will my Jeeps four-wheel-drive system work on a logging road?

Whether it’s a gravel road, forest service road, or a logging road, your Jeep will conquer. Even if you are not on a trail, unpaved roads can become washboard roads with ruts and loose gravel. All of which will test your Jeep’s suspension system when driving. Gravel can act as ice in certain circumstances. That’s where Jeep’s 4×4 systems with electronic brake differentials, traction control, electronic stability control, and gas shocks can help you stay in control.

Are there any other features paired with Jeeps 4×4 systems?

Tough driving conditions are not only on the trail. Driving in a snowstorm can be scary. When drivers are faced with snow, ice, or sleet, that is when Jeep Brand 4×4 shines. Slick conditions require improved traction and added attention from the driver. On-road stopping distances can be up to 10 times greater in slick conditions. With a Jeep four-wheel-drive system paired with their brake lock differential, anti-lock brakes, and traction control, you will be able to power through confidently.

Does Jeep offer 4-Low mode?

The Jeep has built its reputation on the ability to go off-roading in some of the most remote locations on earth. When you purchase a Jeep, you will have true 4-Low modes, with a super-tough suspension, skid plates, and tow hooks to help you go where no other vehicle can go.

Should I lower the air pressure in my tires if I am driving in the sand?

Driving in the sand can be extra challenging due to the lack of traction and the possibility of your undercarriage getting stuck. Jeep kept this in mind when they designed their 4×4 vehicles with high ground clearances to help keep you from getting stuck in soft sand. Pro-tip, drop the air pressure on your tires down about 10 to 12 pounds below normal pressure on conventional tires for better traction in the sand. Then, be sure to return to normal pressure after you return to regular driving conditions.
