Defender / ARB = 1, Garage / House = 0

Not so funny story. Brandy went to start the 90 this morning to let it warm up before she left. Having seen me reach in and start it without getting in she wasn't thinking and did the same, only she forgot to take it out of gear

The ARB bumper held up well only a few scratches where it took out my vice stand which is a piece of 3" pipe bolted to the floor. Had it not have been there the truck might have ended up in our kitchen. I wish I could say the house held up as well as the bumper

Unfortunately the real damage was to her self esteem.

She should have blamed the dog. The evidence supports the allegation.

You should be able to get away with all kinds of stuff for at least a year now!

When I was a kid my younger brother and I were tempting my older brother to pull in and out of the garage real fast. We were standing at the doorway going into the house cheering him on. Our parents were out to dinner. It worked great like three times until he hit the gas instead of the brake...plowed right into the door we were standing in and moved the wall. All kinds of pipes burst spraying water into our living room. We still bust his balls over that all these years later.....He's lucky he didn't run over me and my little brother.....OH GOOD TIMES!

Yea, I bet Daisy (The Dog) was glad it doesn't have air bags.

That's classic! After she shops crying about it I should be off the hook for a while. She already offered to buy me a new bumper. Right now I feel too bad for her to give her a hard time.

I am very thankful neither her or the dog were injured. Other than the back tire running over her foot, I think she's more hurt emotionally.

The anti stall is a really cool feature but it makes me wonder if somebody starts the car in gear (it will start in gear)... what it could do. Truck climbed this with anti stall and traction contol....had to hit brakes once I heard the rear hitch draggin...(that is my NJ anti tailgating device...)

the dog is funny, if I leave a door open for a second on any of my vehicles my dog is in the seat ready to go.

From what I understand is that any TD5 or Puma powertrained (restored) trucks the antistall feature is standard. Basically if your truck is in gear (no parking brake) and you turn the key the starter has enough balls to start the truck and move it forward. Once the engine fires as long as you dont touch the brake pedal or the gas pedal it will basically drive itself.... Once the wheels take resistance the engine will give itself enough power to prevent a stall out.

As Diesel Jim pointed out in an earlier post some of these trucks have traction control so if one wheel starts to slip while in anti-stall mode the power will shift to another wheel...

I know a little about the system but i am no expert.

I guess that makes sense. It sounds like hill assist. Can you turn it on or off?

I'm glad no one was hurt.

On this subject, what is this "anti stall" feature and is it available for V8? Is this an add on? I did a quick search and really didn't come up with much.

No. The only way to disengage it is if you touch the brake or gas pedal which is electronic.

I do not believe it was offered on the V8 engine. Here is a decent video of it in action

Yes, although it goes by a different name - "Gery assist"

Not everyone has an automatic Mr. Galpin!

Switching from auto to manual wheeling is tough. Last time out was much better for me, but still stalling on occasion. Would be nice to have an anti stall while braking downhill over rocks. Not liking pushing clutch to restart and not being in gear.
