Thanks! I'm going wood cutting on Sunday and will be using the 4wd again hopefully with a full load of wood. I'll let you know how it turned out- whether I can get it out of granny gearand back into 2H easy enough. It sure helps using the granny gear coming down out of the mountains- it uses a lot less brake pad, and keep the smell down.
I went camping to Dworshak Resevoir in North central Idaho. THey have a 10% grade going down into the campground. It is sure scary going down that steep and wondering if yer brakes are going to fail. The ranger says almost everyone comes down the hill with brakes smoking- me included- until this year, I put it in granny gear and hardly tapped on the brakes. It was a lot less nerve wracking. Thanks for the tip- will let you know!
