    I’m pretty sure he’s right and most likely this is the issue. You need to run speed sensors at every wheel. It’s not a big deal other than the fact that you already put 52 tooth count rings in the rear already. You’ll either have to change those to 60 count, replace the front unit bearings with the Currie unit bearings built for JK’s, or rebuild your current unit bearings tone ring with the ones Artec sells. You’ll also need abs sensors for a ram pickup.

    Yes, putting all 4 on the rear won't work. There's a ton of info sprinkled around the internet on this regarding the 12+

    If he has the JScan app, he should be able to have different tooth counts front/rear.... I haven't tried this myself, but I saw the option when I bought the app.

    I remember I had a similar problem I was stuck in 4 low because I broke that little plastic bushing for the 4wd linkage cable. Cheap part just a pain to fix.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
