I don’t know if you’ve ever done it but if not it can add a whole new dimension of fun to your 4wding and that is going for a wheel at night. I love a night drive and in particular a rock crawling sort of drive. I put this video together a while back with a few of my ideas on 4wding at night and I hope the tips can help you out as well. Have a watch and share it with your mates who need some help on the road at night :). Anyhow I’m MadMatt stay safe on the trails at night won’t you.
So often when we hear all the hype around the great products that are available for our 4wd recovery purposes we can forget the basics. Over the years i have found that the humble shovel and car jack can be very effective tools in a recovery. There was a time when I want for a quick little play on a local track and got myself stuck at night by myself and pre mobile phones. Not having a winch i was able to use the car jack to jack up the rear wheels and dig out a bit under the differential. Then i got some sticks and rocks and packed up under the tyres and simply drove out. took a bit a time but simple tools and a bit of time saw me clear and on my way home. So remember sometimes simple tools are all we need in a recovery situation. I’m MadMatt stay safe on the trails.
