    Calling All Hairdressers

    Add these tractor grips to your fairy wagon, and you might be allowed to carry your mancard in your handbag

    That'll probably go more places than every ranger I've ever laid eyes on

    Guessing the hydraulic ram drives an arm for picking up K-lines or something similar? Wonder what it's driven off? Only ever used the trailer and ball system but seen quite a few of them get wrecked/wreck the ass end of the truck when used behind a truck as you can't see them in the mirrors and they get jack-knifed and reversed into/over

    Yeah, k line I think. There's another ram in inside that is hooked up. One goes in, other goes out/down. First I've seen on vehicle, normally on quads. Still not sure what it hooks on, a loop maybe, but you'd almost have to get out to do it

    Was on a wallaby session a couple of years ago with a Zuk fitted with those tyres. Amazing how well it went.

    damn better buy a 7mm08 then.better with dual rims inside ones on road or a/t tyres and outers on tractor grips with smaller profile don't wear out on the road and nicer travelling.as soon as you start sinking duels come into effect.farms used to have the old mazda b1600 with duels as most couldn't afford a 4wd ute and they did pretty good getting around.

    We ran a 2wd 1980 Hilux from new with duels wearing SATs. The light 1600cc petrol motor never had enough power to spin the wheels, but floated over most wet spots, was all on the flat tho. The neighbour got one of those flash 4wds on fat tyres, but spent most of his time getting pulled out of holes. Just to heavy, and sat on top and spun

    yep old man had a 71 flatdeck cruiser with petrol motor had standard skinny rims would sink through the mud to harder stuff and away it would go the hilux that his mate had from his work with the lower profile fat feet would spin and slide around till the old man would go pull him out.only problem with the cruiser was no free wheeling hubs big petrol motor did 7mpg on road and 4mpg off road used as a tailing truck towing and carting all the gear and tailing pen.

    The 4x2 hilux's had LSD's which helped a lot.
