I love white lettered sidewalls on tyres. Probably another 2 years before the current set wear out and I can get some tyres with white letters....sigh. My 2002 Hilux just clicked over 270,000kms and is in very good condition so a few more sets of tyres to go on yet.

Ironically, It is on its second engine at 310000kms..... It even has a tipper deck (should make unloading hives very fast)

Why not pin the deck and plumb the powerpack to your hoist?

The rescue mission

Leave no truck behind

There was no way Id take one of my good Prados out to the battle scene so it was up to little flick to drag the stuck and broken truck out of the mud.

It just so appended that Id ordered two new front half shafts for it last week which was timely because this fight broke one.IMG_2391.JPG.d62b93e8c7f937ba658759f6410a610f.JPG

Yes especially if you are a lightweight like little flick.

We ended up with about 10m of rope on the buggy so it had a good run up.

Naturally there is no shock loading when the ropes come tight

Getting a stuck and broken truck out of that rough track.

It would have killed an average truck, The Prado didnt die so therefore isnt an average truck, it limped back to base under its own power.

It was an intense battle, we were ambushed, it was hell
