Rear end sliding around?

Had my Grizz out on the elk hunt and whenever I slowed down, the rear end kept wanting to slide around like I was trying to cut donuts or something. I had it in and out of 4x4, still did it. Anyone else have that happen?

Hope you got an elk, leaving this week myself with two tags.


I would agree to check the tire pressures first however surface conditions, speed, tread wear and braking techniques (more rear then front) have a lot to do with braking stability. Gravel type trails/roads are usually the worse in my experience. J
