stuck in the mud questions???

first off let me say 4x4 trucks with "open rears" is just dumb. a factory optioned "snow plow package" should include limited slip rears.......
i was stuck in the field with a trailer, not deep mud just pasture, like almost up to the wheel but not, just total sidewall coverage....... i know the truck needs new sneakers......

question is when pulling forward while spinning- when i came to rest i heard the truck spool down and the brake peddle got really hard and then truck stalled. it diod this both in forward and reverse each time the truck stopped with forward motion, rocking to try to get un stuck....... is this normal? i noticed today (3 days later) that the canaster at the master cylinder(looks like a soda can on its side) is moist and there is a line of fliud on the frame rail under this.......

Mine has the limited slip in it and mine gets stuck all the time and need to put it in 4 wheel drive. I had actually talked the service guy into tightening the clutches in my rearend. It has helped!!!

Was your "Traction Control" switched OFF???
I was out in the snow this winter and I was driving down a 2ft deep snow covered road and the truck was very low on power and the brakes were acting funny, then I noticed that the "TRAC" light was staying on in the INFO Center. So I turned "Trac" OFF and truck drove normally....

Yea, if you have traction control and get stuck it doesn't know what to do with itself.
