ESC warning light

Friends,

The ESC light came on while I was driving this evening. I was driving in a straight line and had just shifted out of 1st gear into second. Just after letting the clutch completely out and pushing the gas further in to accelerate the jeep stuttered and the light flashed. I pushed in the clutch to maintain control and tried letting it back out while still in 2nd gear but the light came on again. I pulled over into a neighborhood and then back out and drove home. No more light flashes or problems.

I've heard about ESC/ABS lights and some issues on 2007-2009 models but I do not know the remedy or solution that was provided. I am thinking of taking it to the dealership tomorrow to let them run a diagnostic but would appreciate the boards help and suggestions here before hand. Some information about my jeep:

2010 manual 3.21 two doors
2.5 lift with 33x12.5R15
adj front/rear track bars
The steering is straight when driving and the jeep tracks straight.

So you know about the effect of wheel alignment on stability control?

Yes. The steering wheel is centered, the axles are centered, the caster is not off to affect the ESC and the jeep tracks straight. This is the third time in 2 years it has happened. All times while driving on dry pavement in a straight line.
