I have had the same experience. Once you unload the drive train, it slips right into 2HI.stinkyfj60 said:What kind of surface were you on? Sounds like you got a bit of windup in your driveline, nothing unusual. My 60 will do this over hardpacked surfaces and putting it in reverse and backing up a shortways will allow it slip right into 2WD.
Sometimes I give mine a little romp in reverse, but only a few feet. Just hit the gas in reverse and then hit the brakes pretty hard and it will get out of 4WD much easier.87CRUSR said:I was crossing rockbed streams and on semi hard dirt, some loose stuff but not much. I did reverse a bit but will try a little further next time.
I have only done that trick when rolling backward a few feet doesnt do the trick. It happens to my 60 where I have to be in 4Low to pull the grade but the surface is pretty hard so I do not get wheel slip of any kind.Andew said:- though I find I don't have to reverse quickly or stomp on the brakes - just a gentle reverse for a couple of feet and roll forwrd again and she slips into 2wd easily
