Anyone else able to stall in low range ?

2011 Rubi. 6 speed and the last few times I have taken it out I'v stallend it in 1st low. I can hold the brake and let out on the clutch and it will work fine. Only seams to do it when I'm twisted up and have the drive line in perty good bind. This didnt start till a few weeks ago. Anyone else having this isue? Its no big deal but I have goten used to the no stall feature and it kinda spoils you.

the manual has an anti stall feature that makes it kinda prone to stalling ive found. do this, go out and try to get the car rolling without using the gas, just clutch only. you'll find the jeep actually gives itself a bit of gas to stop from stalling out. when you try to feather the gas (the way you normally would with a stick) it cancels out the auto gassing, and seems to stall it. makes it a pain when youre in 2wd trying to do things slowly, like back out of a spot in a parking lot. awesome on the trail, or when youre stuck in traffic.

but seriously, try the gas-less driving thing. so cool.

*edit* didnt notice you mentioned you knew about the anti stall. might mean your clutch is worn or you've lost some of the clutch pedal fluid. or might need a reflash

Well, there is a anti stall but it still has to move the tire even if that means the tire just spins. If you bind the tires were they can not move at all then it has to stall. Since there is no torque converter, unless you hit the clutch there is no way for slippage in the drivetrain so something has to give or the motor has to stall even with an anti-stall.

Yes I understand this but I noticed that My Jeep has goten easyer to stall lately. I allways knew there was no way to keep one from stalling out when in a huge bind. Well maby if it reved the motor way up... but that could lead to broken parts. I'm just wonder if anyone who wheels in low range has seen a change as there jeep got older?

Could it be that your heavier tires, wheels, armor, and winch that you've added recently have simply made the wheels harder to turn and the jeep heavier overall such that the amount of revs the computer believes are necessary to prevent a stall are falling short?

You could be on to something, but I hope not becouse my jeep is goint to gain a lot of lbs before Im done with it. But then again I dont think thays it becouse a few days ago I had the skids on a dead tree crossing over it and only the rear was on the ground when it stalled. I wasnt on the gas or brake when it stalled. I guess Ill take it in one day,maby.

I've had mine stall but it seems to come when I'm in 1st low crawling over something steep and I touch the throttle then want to let off the throttle, it seems to take a second for the anti stall to catch back up and becomes easy to stall until it does.

used to stall my 2007 six speed 3.21 rear quite a bit and it really was a PITA. solved it by trading for a 2012 Rubi with 4:10s. good go go now.
