Combine that with either cranking the wheel or if the tires suddenly grabbed traction and lugged the engine down and it could possibly stall the engine out?
could be a vacuum leak?

It should.

Huh? How would either of those put excessive load on the battery? And how would excessive load on the battery cause the engine to quit?

I don't have an answer to the OP's question, but the above does not make any sense to me.

Engine shut off

I was sliding on ice yesterday in my 97 sahara. I pumped the brakes, hard and fast, and the engine shut off???
It was hard to restart....
Any ideas why?
