So following a topic on the Community Forum, I was VERY surprised to find a pic of PraDog in December 2014 issue of Drive Out/WegRy!

Apologies for the lack of a Hilux Club Forum sticker at the time the pic was taken, at the time the only sticker I had was on Bulldog, this matter has, of course, long since been remedied.

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

The 90-Series Prado is actually a damn good car! During that same outing, we took White Fang as well, and everywhere that WF went, PraDog faithfully followed. The one exception was where WF got stuck in the mud, PraDog did not!

The article is slightly inaccurate about the rear diff-lock as PraDog does not have one fitted, only the later models did. I suspect, however, that it is fitted with a LSD (factory fit) as I purposely tried to get stuck on a slippery incline but it took that in its stride.

The top right pic in my signature is from the same place, Tinus Botha's training grounds here in Klerksdorp.

Here is a pic of White Fang at the same location...

and another shot of PraDog, with excellent articulation. Ignore the white-haired dude in the driver's seat, the camera must have lost some pixels there.
