That's great that it works on your truck but how about my defective truck? Who knows how it would react. I appreciate it though, I think neutral will be the way to go next time it happens, gearing down also worked for me just not as quickly as I would have liked, especially had there been something in front of me.

From the other stories online turning the truck off has been a quick bandaid that stopped the truck, but the problem resumed as soon as the engine was started again, and putting it in neutral makes the transmission violently shake and stall. I think at this point not driving until the problem is fixed might be best.
