when pressing hard enough to just stay stopped like at a light the pedal is about 5 1/2 inches from the ground (little less than 1/2 way from the at rest position), when pressing hard like for a panic stop its about 4 1/2 inches from the ground.

When pumping the brakes at idle the pedal goes down the same amount each time, when holding it down at idle it stays in position also.

Stopping enough to thrust me forward but not enough to lock up the wheels still.

Dont know ANYWHERE that there is loose gravel around here, ill keep an eye out but most of the places with gravel are construction areas and blocked off here in the city. Dont know if ill be able to find anywhere large enough to be able to do that gravel test, just with the weight alone I think the whole truck would slide anyway.
