Ok the title of the post was made to catch some attention... and maybe
some others can back up the following scenario:
Stuck in deep mud, made ruts, trying to rock out, automatic trans going
from 1st to reverse (I read somewhere they are on the same "throw" in the
trans so it takes less thinking time for the transmision to shift from 1st
to reverse vs drive etc...
i was in 4wd high and i would go foward to get to the peak of the rut, get
stuck then want to go to reverse quickly before sliding back down, however
the wheels are still spinning so I hit the brakes to stop all 4, and the abs
kicks in... when that happeneds I come down the rut and im back where i
started... if i were to jam the trans from 1st to reverse i expect I would
do some damage so i had to just continue easing my way to the sides of the
rut to get out.
I found this very annoying and was wondering if anybody had the same
experience, if so what did you do? Does anybody else think abs is not what
it is craked up to be... especially in off roading situations?
Just looking for feedback
