Sway Bar & Lockers Explained

Nena Barlow demonstrates how to use the sway bar disconnect and axle lock features on the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon to conquer difficult terrain safely and effectively. In this week’s Trailwise video, we show the difference between using low-range 4wd alone, then with the front sway bar disconnected, and finally with the assist of 4-wheel axle lock. See how the Jeep’s built in traction control system works to help you climb rugged trails too.
