Jeep Wrangler Hill Descent Control

What is Hill Descent Control?

Wheeling at Rausch Creek

The Hill Descent Control system helps monitor throttle, speed, and braking while traveling down a steep hill. This is an acquired skill needed when you take your Jeep off-road. It takes time and practice to get it right. The Jeep Wranglers have a button you can push that will help you in situations where you don't feel comfortable with throttle and brake control. Not understanding the full potential of your Jeep and the proper use of the brakes and throttle could get you and your Jeep into a not-so-good situation.

First Time  

What I remember the most was the amazing off-road proficiency of my Jeep. I never knew it had such capabilities. My instructor, Kyle, guided me through the trails. At one point I was on top of a steep, rocky hill ready to go down. He told me to push the button on my control panel - the Hill Descent Control button. A button I always wondered about -- thinking I would never use it. 

Magic Button 

I pushed the button and started down the hill. He told me to take my foot off the brake. It was a hard concept to accept, but I had the utmost trust in him.  Once I reached the bottom of the hill, I was speechless and absolutely amazed at how my Jeep performed. To this day it still boggles my mind that the Jeep drove itself down that hill.
