May sound like a stupid question, but... When you are mud bogging or stuck in a hole with a stick, I know you basically grab a gear and hold it. You just give it the gas and try to work your way through or out of it. That's how I used to do it with my Jeep. Now, with an auto, things are a bit different. I usually wheel in D. When the tires start to spin, the tranny starts going through the gears. When the tires actually start to grab, my weak 305 has no torque so it starts to downshift. However, it can't do it fast enough before I am back in the hole again. I would assume a mud bog would hurt me the same way... Run high wheel speed by going through the gears but as soon as they start to grab it would kill the wheel speed because of a lack of torque. So, when getting out of a hole or running a mud bog in an auto tranny, should I use D or 1 or 2? Or just slap it into 4LO and let it run through the gears and still hold onto the torque sacrificing wheel speed?
