I worked at the Thompson Reservoir as Caretaker, had a landcruser with a PTO winch could use all gears whilst winching, rescued an F100 2x2 on Beardmore’s Track some how he got half way up. I but the Toyotas bull bar against a tree a winched him bit by bit up to the top, now that’s a winch.
We had Mitsubishi 4x4 Canters in the ADF, in normal conditions they go anywhere good ground clearance, but no matter how good it is out there no way. They forgot the 6 “P’s” hard to believe they didn’t take the advice from the local Cops, and totally underestimated the situation.
I saw Johns report and must say it’s not worth the hassle, LDV sales team sound like typical car sales prick. I too was interested but this changed the whole shooting match I’ll stick with my D22 Navara.
