Track 4 - The day I killed my Jeep
Talbotville Campground was the site for the 6th Annual 4x4earth Victorian Gathering. Home of some of Australia's iconic tracks, including Blue Rag and Billy Goat's Bluff, there is plenty of amazing 4 wheel driving to be had in this beautiful part of the world. Find out what went tragically wrong on this trip and the mistakes that James made that resulted in him destroying his Jeep Wrangler.
This is a tragic story, and a fate that has occurred to many other 4 wheel drivers. Please have a listen and learn from James' mistakes and share the story so we can make sure that more people have a great time out in the bush and go 4 wheel driving without any damage to their vehicles.
We discuss the driving technique that was wrong (a lot of people do this - James wasn't the only one that day with this nasty habit)
We discuss the one accessory that could of saved him.
We discuss some what to do when caught in this situation.
Big shout out to Davids and Mandy for helping us get home!
Have a listen and please share with a mate so we can see less vehicles getting busted like this.
Have a read of Slartibartfast's great write up on what happens when an engine gets water in it.
