I took my friend to show her how to use her Land Rover discovery. Lots of water and mud made me take her first with my hilux to check out the possiblitly of her taking her LD. She had road tyres so we wnated to avoid mud. While i was explaining the in and outs of low range etc, i made stupid mistake of not checking the hill before driving it. Thinking at the time i have done it so many times before i know it well. The rain had washed the other side of the hill away and created a deep donga. So i went in nose first and back wheels in on the lip of the hill. The nose of my hilux was buried in the donga resting on the bullbar. Front wheels just off the ground so they had no traction. I tried reverse but the hilux just spun the back wheels. Time to use my Hi lift jack and spade for the first time. I jacked the front up put rocks under the front wheeels and then drove it out. Stupid mistake but at least i used my hi lift jack! :wink2: Needless to say i learned my lesson and walked all the sections before driving.
