Itís onky noticeable in super tight quarters like a parking garage.

Otherwise itís not that noticeable to me.

Obviously the system on the JGC is the modern apogee of Jeep 4wd.

But whatever is in the JK and JK is still oddly effective even short of Rubicon trim.

Huh, good to know.

When I "locked" the JGC center-diff, I could barely take my first turn in an open parking lot.

Scary as shit ... she and one of her friends have some neck, chest and back pains but we are hoping everything is ok (fingers crossed) kudos to Audi, it got hit by a big pick up truck and the interior of the car had no visible damage.

Argh ... now you see why crash ratings are so important ...

Ugh, glad to hear that she seems to be OK. Cars are always replaceable.

Awful. I had a near miss like that with a pickup truck while in college (Hudson Valley of NY). In a tiny Mazda circa 1980. Lucky to be alive.

So glad your daughter escaped serious injury.
