4wd stopped working in reverse.

Postby ontherks » Wed Sep 08, 2010 9:11 pm

Well I found the problem.
Earlier in the year I started having 4wd issuses. Would work going forward. But not in reverse unless I had been in 4wd going forward for a while.
Even ran the rubicon with Larry with it acting up.
Well sunday I came down the goat trail at cisco by the look out. (Been up it a few times last year in the RZR, but never down)

There was a rhino at the look out I was trying to get to follow me down :twisted:

Everything went fine til the tight switch back at the bottom. I figured that wouldbe the hardest part. I just turned off down the hill and cut the corner and then would have to use reverse a few times to get straightened back out on the trail.

Thats when the 4wd all but gave up. With the frontend on the down hill side of the trail and ass end above it lol.
Some heavy throtal and steering along with alot of poping I got where I needed to be.

Installed the billet carrier monday that has been sitting in the garage all summer.
