    NOOB Question. bags and automatic tranny......

    so how are you guys showing off while not moving, in park or neutral or does it not matter? maybe im over thinking this? is it bad to be doing it in park? i see the truck rolling back when i air up the front is it a issue?

    Nope never had a issue in park or drive While hitting the switchs. Now if it keeps rolling then thats a problem. But I doubt it would be caused by the bags.

    the purpose of a parking brake is to one save your parking gear, and two to make sure your vehicle doesn't roll away if your parking gear breaks do to stress.

    so if your truck keeps "rocking" you could put enough stress on your parking gear to break it

    another thing I was always taught was to hold the brake and put the vehicle in neutral, set the e-brake, let off the brake and let the vehicle come to rest on the e-brake, THEN put the vehicle in park. Not sure if it really does anything but make me feel better
