Follow me?
I have this happen alot. If it's just an incline back down and roll Into it get on the gas and don't let the tires stop. But if you hit a bump and get locked like you said and have to start at a stop try in 4 lo and pump the gas so they will pull through Instead of stall out. Know what I mean? Hit the pedal to get em moving if your rpms are climbing without movement. But do not! Force a stall, sh*t will get real. Add brake release gas then punch it. And I use the term punch it very loosely.

There is a difference between crawling and trails. Some othe trails we ride, a winch won't do it, we've got a Versatile.

Rubi is my daily driver and it's my worst fear and rolling it. Now my other Jeep I wouldn't mind it but would still be a problem.
Grew up in Georgia, riding PBRA for six years, got Waylon and Hank in the Jeep, my hat's on the table, boots at the door. Yeah, the south is full of Yankees!

This is a skewed conversation Diffrent conditions and terrain require diffrent selection of what gear or t-case speed to be in. I believe the op is speaking of a crawling over and around type situation. Where I go 80% of it can be done in 2wd as long as you know your terrain, use your head and have your traction control off. In my case it's great being able to shift on the fly. For people that do rocks and trails of that type 4lo is viable. I put my jeep there once and it was only because I wanted to see how it crawled up a mud filled gulch without having wheel spin and made some tight turns to get to know how to handle that if I needed it. I typically only need 4h with proper air pressure and when crossing rocks or deep water. I have never been through a rock garden like I will be seeing soon on my next trip to an ORP so I guess I may actually need it for that.
