I didn't know what they meant at first, then after a bit more of driving I started to figure out that I didn't need to slam the clutch in every time the rig felt like it was going to die, and that I could let it out a lot faster and it'll grab just fine in 4 Low.

I'll chalk it all up to my noobness.
We are having a club meeting this Saturday at 7:15 if you want to check things out.

Sounds good but I'll be out of town, have to go clean out a house in Merced.

How often are these club meetings?

Once a month but KMD and I both live in Modesto so we are available more times than not.

Idle Air Control IIRC.

You pull it, because it'll allow the engine to idle lower, it also won't high idle when it's cold. The guys were saying (and demonstrated) that pulling it will allow the rig to crawl easier with a manual transmission. Basically, when the engine is about to die, the IAC will kick up the idle and cause the rig to jerk a little (i.e. coming to a stop, and you don't put the clutch in, the rig will buck) This will stop happening, and you can crawl in 4 low and leave your foot off the clutch.

It might help, it might not, but it helped me. Now, after we got back onto hwy 4, I popped the sensor back in, and drove through the beginning of the trail and was able to crawl in 4low without the IAC unplugged just the same. Maybe it just helped me learn to control the rig without the clutch a bit better. I stopped being so worried that the rig would die when the RPM dropped to around 1k.

Those hummer guys actually helped me out a ton fixing the broken shaft. And Bebe is a huge asset in the fight for land use... so dont get upset because you broke on slickrock. It happens to the best of us

I'm upset because they couldn't move their fat truck out of the trail to let us get by and cost me a few hundred. My break was not due to stupidity.

I have to agree with agent on this one. The guy could have moved his Hummer, but was waiting for Bebe or someone to tell him to. If I didn't shadow him and keep demanding he to move it, he wouldn't have. I asked him five times, and he wouldn't even acknowledge me. The guy was a total jerk-wad.

That jerking, and sounding like its going to die or break something happens to me. I thought it all had to do with my gearing.
