    I have wanted to to that for soooo long
    I think something is wrong with me.

    ontopic: don't have a auto, but my mate does. stick it in low range, 1st gear. Much slower.

    Works well indeed, used to use the handbrake in the bt50 in muddy uphill climbs and it gradually crawled up no issues.

    Did the same in the patrol awhile back but the old " kirup syrup" mud down south ended up getting the better of the old AT's and bogged

    I've used it previously, works well.
    It probably does heat up your ATF a bit but maybe you just need to flush it a bit more regularly.
