6th to 1st? Damn, I bet you could hear your tranny CLUNK over the noise of the semi on the jake brake. Like others have already said, don't ever downshift more than one gear at a time unless you are ready to snatch the clutch back in if the back tire looses traction or the tach redlines. You (and the semi) are not supposed to use engine braking in slippery conditions as it only applies braking to the drive tire(s).

You did the right thing by keeping it up. Loosing the back tire can be a puckering experience. [:0]
