6.7 traction control?

hey guys i was wondering if there is anyway to truly turn traction control off. yes the book says hold the button under a certain speed for a duration of 5 seconds and all is off. that is incorrect.

my problem is when there is leaves or little bit of snow on ground the trucks tires slip but unlike my other trucks that you could just ride through the slipping and pull yourself out the new 6.7 will cut engine power and produces no power to the wheels leaving this amazing bad a$$ looking truck stuck and looking like a hybrid. the big problem is my driveway is a bit a a hill and i could put 4 wheel on but the street is clear and i dont wanna turn with 4 wheel on and on dry pavement.

any help would help guys im open for all options here thank you

6.7 traction control?

I tried the same thing the other day. I couldn't get it to turn everything off either. I know there are some guys on here that have, and they said all they did was hold the button down.

get rid of that stupid elocker in the rear. truck has way too much power for an open diff

Best mod I've done is the Truetrac. Without it I couldn't put any power to the ground.

Pull the axles, pull the carrier bolts. Press new bearings on and transfer the ring gear.

check the backlash before and after. If it's the same put the cover back on and fill it with oil.

I've been running a TT for 20 years. No better diff exists for those of us who spend 98% of our time on the street.

It does OK offroad, but just OK. If you are heavy into four wheelin a detroit locker would be better.

E Lock Differential with Traction Control

I have a hill on my driveway also and it gets icy. Will the E-lock differential help in a situation like this? I think I can pull the switch and lock up the rear axle.

Maybe traction control will still snuff out any applied torque if slip is detected.

The E locker may help you get up an icey drive way. Too bad that it disengages after 20 mph. If you have the E locker the switch is located on the 4wd selector, you just pull it. Like the fog lights. You should be fine putting it in 4wd as long as you go straight and do not turn. I have yet to read the full manual, maybe the correct procedure will be in it.

Not to get in a pissing match, but an elocker is much better than a true trac. I do not know why anyone would make a switch like that. I used to work in an off road shop and have heard very poor feedback on the true trac. Some have even let loose. But to each his own.

I Love my e locker. It amazes me how often I can get the truck up and goin with just true 2 wheel drive. But the traction control reminds me when I was a kid and my Mom took me out driving on the snow for the first time, every time the truck gets just a bit squirlley she'd come out of the seat in a panic and the fun was over...
