    So I’m driving to work this morning.
    Let hand lane about 40mph.
    People breaking ranks and pulling off to the interstate.
    So I pull in front of this dumpster carrying truck and just move on down the road.
    Fast forward to a stop light in front of a gas station. This light has a quirk from time to time and
    It decided to do a fast red. So I stop fairly quickly, nothing crazy.
    Suddenly I hear a moaning.... and not the good kind. I have heard this many times before.
    Now I am always looking in the rear view when I stop. Always.
    So in the rear view I see smoke. Tire smoke. And a big ass truck coming up on my ass with the wheels turned. And now I hear chattering.
    He is not going to stop in time.
    So before I got a truck up my ass, I beat feet with a hard right into and around the gas station entrance.
    Truck came to a stop 2 feet beyond the stop line where I had been parked even with.
    So in a nut shell I would have lost my truck.
    So I pulled back to the road and this guy is holding his head and shaking.
    I rolled down my window and yelled if he was ok.
    He looked up and nodded.
    So I gave him a thumbs up for not wrecking the dam truck yelled good job and pulled back out and went into the shop lot. He knew I wasn’t going into the station for anything except escaping.
    So what the 2 cups of coffee couldn’t do, this truck did. I WAS AWAKE NOW.....
    I can only think my racing experience has once again given me an edge of not freezing and
    Reacting.....
    The more I think about it, I really think this could have been a bad deal...

    I’m just happy the dam trac control didn’t kick in until I did the exit stage right.
    I usually shut it off but not this morning.

    Yeee Haaaa

    I never really understood all the electric options.all my other trucks and jeep just had a lever to put in 4WD. and had limited slip in the rearend.so in the mode you put the truck in what is the advantage.when on the mtn. I just do a short push of VSC. would that be right,for strong limited slip. sorry for the dumb questions. trying to learn from the master:bowdown:

    Yes ..... whatever happened to the time of getting out of your truck and manually locking the hubs on the front wheels . Then next climbing back in the cab an manually pushing the transfer cases two shifters to engage 4wd

    Such a much simpler time !!!!!!
