What the hell?? You guys make it sound like there is actually something to think about when you stop.

Pedal on the far left. Use it to change gears and prevent a stall at low rpms. Left foot only for normal street driving.

Pedal in the middle. This on will stop you. press harder to stop faster. Right foot only for normal street driving.

Pedal on the right. This one makes you go, assuming other two pedals aren't in use. Press farther to increase speed. Right foot only.

Now do you want to a) stop b) shift or prevent a stall c) go faster.

Neutral does not come into play while parking, unless you want to sit there idling without your foot on the clutch. Sheeesh!

I drive a '75 International Fleetstar 2010A fire truck as my "other toy", she's got a 5-speed non-synchro tranny and weighs about 15,000 lbs unloaded. Usually I'll pull into a spot, put on the parking brake, shut down the engine, and then put her in first.....has never gone anywhere on me before. I do still use chock blocks though, but I've never found her resting on the block when I go to move to.......

Seeing how weak the e BRAKE ( not break) and you are on a real big slope use your transfer shifter in to 4 lo. If facing down hill use 1st gear with the e brake. If facing up hill use reverse and your e brake. Now is there a curb in either case then add turning your wheels to where they roll into the curb first then apply all of the previous. Now this should keep your vehicle in place.

Oh for those who do not know what an engine brake is. That is when the engine is turned off with it in gear. Hence engine brake by using the compression of the engine is doing the braking.

An engine brake "jake brake" shuts off combustion to cylinders. Some have 1 2 or 3 stages. This is the sound you hear when a semi is going down a steep hill. Others close the valves to create back presure. These can be harder on an engine but work better. It has nothing to do with gear besides the fact the truck has to be in one for it to work. lol

If the ditch you park in is big enough your whole front tire will get wedged in there and you'll need a jimmy to pull you out.

Oh and dont forget to engage the emergency brake...






---Lol, there is no such thing as an "engine brake". Well in a sense. All it means is leave the Jeep in 1st or Reverse, not neutral...This gives a better chance that your jeep will not roll anywhere in case of emergency/parking brake failure

there is engine brakes. They are use to slow down semis and other big vehicles. I have them on all my trucks. they either hold the exast valves closed or close a buterfly in the exast pipe. I dought any jeep has one.

Maybe I'm just getting too old to remember, but wasn't parking in gear and using hand brakes and all covered in the driver's test when we all first got our license?

I also keep forgetting that not everyone grew up driving their grandfathers column shift truck around the fields out back. I guess we take a lot of simple tasks for granted.

It looks to me that the jeep, even in the state of full articulation, still has enough traction to pull out the jimmy which is obviously stuck.

There's my choice out of the thousand words...
