Stability control is usually cancelled when in low range - is this a problem?

You wouldn’t normally be travelling in low range on a dirt road, so ESC will be active and works very well to keep the vehicle stable – it won’t ‘fishtail’. In soft sand, such as on beaches, you can be in low range or high range, but in either case you don’t want ESC interfering with power delivery – in high range you can deselect ESC.

If you get a sudden flat tyre when running on a dirt road ESC will help keep the vehicle stable. There may be more tyre damage than without ESC, but a tyre is cheaper to replace than a 4WD. We use tyre pressure monitoring, so we never get a surprise blowout.
