OPERATING IN DEEP MUD
Six-wheel drive is achieved automatically when transfer case shift lever is placed
in low range. In high range, the front-wheel drive lock-in switch must be engaged
to achieve six-wheel drive.
Use a second vehicle with winch to recover vehicles sunk in deep mud. Do not
spin wheels. Refer to paragraph 2-22 for front winch operation.
Place transmission selector lever (2) in 1-5 (drive) and transfer case shift lever (3) in low range. Place vehicle
in motion slowly without causing wheels to spin or engine to race. Place transfer case shift lever (3) in high range when
vehicle is under way.
If rear end skidding occurs:
Turn steering wheel (1) in direction of skid.
Let up on accelerator pedal (4) and apply brake pedal (5) in a gradual pumping manner.
Wash all mud from vehicle as soon as possible.
If vehicle front winch was used, clean and lubricate. Refer to LO 9-2320-272-12.
