Interesting, when you order a Trac Loc (anti spin) rear end you get AT tires, when you add "Selec-Trac" the change the tires to HT's, sucks but true!! Assume mall crawler I guess. I did not know this until I got my Sahara, HT's?? I do some moderate Off road so I bought a set of Falken AT'3s and they are great, The HT's I took off were Bridgestones. Nice and quiet, better MPG really iffy off road, especially with anything slick! The Falkens are fairly quiet but the mileage has dropped considerably even taking winter gas into the formula??

I can see why jeep maybe does not want a manual with "Selec Trac"?? I'm not so sure it is that great an option, have really only used it to break in some of the parts, 4wd Hi is fine, pavement dry's out shift into 2wd.I guess if we get a week with lotsa snow my wife will feel more relaxed with "Selec Trac"? She's stole the damn thing from me anyway!!!!I'm stuck with my old 2015 Cherokee Trailhawk, "Selec-everything" Snow, sand, rock, low and low rear locker, poor me! lol I did really hope I'd have a JLU, she loves it poor me!

Go Jeep!!!
Your wife has excellent taste!

Same set up with me. Sahara, AT tires, anti spin and SelecTrac, couldn't be happier. Tremendous performance in the snow. Rubicon owners cover your ears . . . . . . this set up is much better in the snow than my 2014 JKUR with the stock mud tires . . . . ok, Rubicon owners, it's safe now.

Love the Jeep, makes me smile every day, unlike any other vehicle on the road...commute, mall, top down, trail ride to camp with the family, ride on the sand, tow the sailboat, drive a hunting trail, warm the steering wheel. :)
Ok cover your ears. It's not going in snow that causes most issues, it's stopping. I'd rather drive my wife's FWD civic with snow tires than any wrangler (unless it's got 4 chains). Heavy vehicles with high COG are terrible in really slick conditions.
