See this thread on the Community forum where recovery in reverse gear versus recovery in forward gears is discussed. Some untrue comments made in the beginning of the thread, but those at the end make perfect mechanical sense and are an enlightening read ... especially IRO newer vehicles with a weaker front wheel drive train than that of the rear wheels. ... hp?t=53669" onclick=";return false;
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.


Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
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!
