I suggest you join a club. I'm prior service and have been driving 4x4s my entire adult life, but I learned a ton by wheeling with a club. Guys have been wheeling trails since the old CJs, and alot of the trails we're on today were broken in by those old jeeps.

That sucks. In my opinion, stop trying to fix it. Start keeping a diary of problems. When it locks up, just let it stay locked up til you bring it in.
Let the dealer see the problems in their entirety and they'll find the problem. It might take a couple of instances of the unit being...
