No rear Locker, but a Locker in the PTO?

Consumer Reports will always find a reason to hate it, as they do all Jeeps.

Picture #23 shows a Picture of the Rotation Knob which operates the Drivetrain, as in our Cherokee. Wouldn't pushing the 4wd Lock button just lock the two ends together? I did know that it was locked into First Gear for Low.

Picture 23 is the way my Dodge Nitro's 4wd worked. It is basically RWD. The front 1/2 shafts, differential and driveshaft were always rotating. Turning the 4wd knob electronically engaged the front drive shaft and the 2 drive shafts were locked: 50/50. There was really no transfer case, and no Low. The guys on the Nitro forum were always trying to figure out how to install a 2-speed transfer case from the Liberty!

The system works the same as the Renegade. Like the Cherokee it has no transfer case, unlike the Cherokee no option for the two speed pto and two speed rear dif or locking rear axel. All the lock does is lock the front rear to 50/50 and use break lock differential and then locking it into 1st gear to get 20 to 1 ratio. It is the same architecture as the Renegade but a few inches longer. Renegade 101.2" Compass 103.7" Cherokee 107.0" It is better than any thing else in its class but not as good as a Cherokee.

You thought the UConnect hack was bad, imagine somebody hacking in through that mess. I'm glad ours don't have it.
