Total destruction

Post by Hspencer » Sun Mar 21, 2021 10:15 am

Expected results of flat towing with transmission in 1st and transfer case in low range!

So a 3.6L can't handle 45,000 rpm (roughly, based on math of it being in 1st gear low range), go figure :P

I dunno. How could you not feel the drag from the first time you tried to move? Would be almost as bad as someone back there standing on the brakes. At least pulling away from a stop.

Smells fishy to me.

I can see someone new to motor homes doing this. Take a 40,000 lbs diesel pusher and a jeep in first gear/low range which in that jeep is 84:1, wouldn’t take much to get the engine turning. Never underestimate the power of stupidity.

Wouldn't take much to get the Jeep rolling with it's own engine. Would take a lot to push or pull it.
