    Correct Ryan, as far as I can see so far, however I got out.
    I think the Surf was a far better 4x4
    Should have kept it and saved my family 35K

    My Triton has the factory dif lock which is good, but also gets you deeper in the shit and makes it harder to get out.
    The old solid axle hilux I also got goes much further and does it easier

    I think that was the problem oraki ,initially I put it in 4 low and tried to crawl out but the only thing I did was dig a deeper hole, should have put it in 4 high just gunned the damn thing.

    I suspect that the tyres on the new hilux's makes a hua of a difference. With the Ranger, low box starts up the electronic magic and the bloody thing just doesn't stop. On the poxy at22 factory semi-slicks, I got stuck on clay in a farm gate. 2wd nup. 4 high, still nup and now sliding into the strainer post...

    Select 4 Low, put in gear and simply drive straight out and everyone says what a dick...

    The folks had some fert spread on Tuesday. The driveway is steep down and then steep up and gravel, not quite steep enough to stop a 2wd though. Anyway last truck and trailer of the day went down the driveway then lost momentum on the way back up the other side. He got out to head to the house to ask for a tow, the truck and trailer somehow let go and chased him down the drive and peeled off the side at the bottom nearly rolling both. Then when he did get towed out he managed to smash the gate and post it was attached to but also the post and rails on the other side that the gate swings to. Highly recommended operator

    It would have been an unsalvagable fireball if I'd have been driving/flying it
