Re: 2014 GC Limited Backing Up Steep Hill

Jms

Re: 2014 GC Limited Backing Up Steep Hill

You have described exactly what I would like to see. In my case just a few more RPM's for a couple of seconds would do the trick.

Re: 2014 GC Limited Backing Up Steep Hill

The driveway IS paved as you can see in the photo. And yes it does bind in 4 low and that short strech backing is the only place I would need 4 low so the rest of the trip up the hill going forward...

Re: 2014 GC Limited Backing Up Steep Hill

The hill is about 30deg, maybe more, hard to tell but short only about 40 ft. I will post some photo and maybe video this weekend.

Re: 2014 GC Limited Backing Up Steep Hill

First thing I did was diable the hill holder function thinking that was interfering somehow. Same results. Hill decent can only be turned on in low range. Good thought though

Re: 2014 GC Limited Backing Up Steep Hill

Not worried about stressing the tranny. The ZF is good for 330 ft-lbs and its a very short trip only about 35-40ft.

Re: 2014 GC Limited Backing Up Steep Hill

Re: 2014 GC Limited Backing Up Steep Hill
