On this drop off I was super tempted to run it hard driver because I love how the Crawler holds the vehicle back without using the brakes.

But because I'm still open-open, if one tire on each axle is able to unload, then you can still slide forward despite the engine maintaining a steady idle in gear.

That factor combined with the fact the front bumper sticks out a mile concerned me enough to stay a bit passenger.

It ended up being a very basic drop-off. No brakes needed. Just engage the TacoBox and let the engine hold you back.
