Re: Wk2 moved overnight

This thing slid 3 or 4 feet. Slight incline nothing much. I just don't understand if two left tires are on ice, why doesn't the right side keep it in place?

It shouldn't but there are open diffs and not much resistance in the transfer case. So there really isn't anything to keep the car from moving when one or two wheels lose traction. The torque builds up to the point that one tire slips and it spins backwards as the others with traction rotate forward. Setting the parking brake should keep it from rolling.

Not saying that someone isn't fooling with you, but if the ice is slippery, it can happen even on a moderate incline.

I agree. if you lift the rear end of your truck with it in park, you can turn the one tire one way and the other will spin the opposite way. So if you parked half on ice and half off ice then someone pushed or leaned on the truck it would roll in that direction, because the tires on the pavement are rotating one way and the ice is allowing the opposite side to rotate the other way. Safest bet is to set the parking brake everytime now and don't forget about it when you go to leave.
