haha Well the section that it is about to drive, yes but on a nice angle towards the rock on the passenger side of the 4wd.
The hill that everyone talks about is where I am standing taking the photo from looks a little like this

It is driveable, we didn't attempt to drive it just nosed the front up and winched to save the truck in case something bad did happen.

Yeah and you think it would be just for comp trucks its even worse in the flesh I'll have to do a service on the good ol winch before then.

Shame you don't have a truck anymore would have been great for you to see it. Hopefully I'll have a good turnout of people on this trip and if no just less cars to get up the 6 stager lol

Well I certainly have no proof Rob, and wedding ring doesn't count as Proof, no excuses then for Saturday is what you're saying right? Thats alright because we aren't hitting the tracks until Saturday gives you heaps of time ;)

Sounds good to me mate ;) we will just have to designate a meet up spot at a certain time, we'll be out on the tracks around 8:30 im hoping. What time if you're coming would you imagine you'd arrive? Just so we know if we're going to play around the campsite area seems as you're keen to do tree root etc

really shocks me i thought only comp trucks would get up there.

hope you guys have a great trip :)

Haha. Don't let the looks deceive you, that Hilux in the video is virtually a comp truck without the bar work around the cab. About the only thing standard in that truck is "some" of the body panels and I think the center console :eek: everything else about it is pure off road weaponry :cool:

Sounds like a good option Bugsy, drive around to the top and lube up the winch ;)
