Help with 4x4 bucking

hey everyone i was just out driving around in the snow today (while shooting skeet) and while driving back i was in 4 LO ( 6 speed) the truck bucking horrible, the rpms were up about 2rpm crawling and the whole powertrain was jumping, i was watching the shifter jumping all over the place. the truck has1500 miles on it. wear and tear is not an option i could make it up this hill in fear i was going to break her!!! any help would be great. i hope this is not a taste for things to come for off roading

Maybe in the spot you were in there was more traction then you thought?

Since you are in low range the engine's torque is multiplied so any acceleration or deceleration greatly amplified. Also if you are just driving on snow then you should not need low range.

Doesn't mean you didn't push it on accident. It just sounds like a traction issue.

talking about 4 lo...I have the same truck a '11 access cab, and a after few miles of loose gravel up a mountain road, I had to use 4 low to unload at a remote shack...

however, when I put it into back 4 hi, it wanted to stick in 4 lo and beep at me. The problem only cleared when I turned the engine off, then back on.

Any ideas?

Ah, I just stopped and put the clutch in...the way I have been doing it for 30 years...

Then again, my Power Wagon has four levers, gear box, parking brake, Hi-lo and 2-n-4...

Learned my lesson today, thanks.

Oh you have a manual. You can be in gear but you need to hold the brake and clutch in.
