I'm surprised I got as far as I did with my stock Michelin tyres. Starting to think the Chief recovery points are a waste of money, haven't used them yet.
Kudos to you in getting up there. Pretty ballsey.
I'll put up a video soon, but here is the end result.
Good stuff, I see you have fitted the uneek rock sliders? did they get a bit of a work out?
I went to Yalwal along the Monkey Gum trail. Very hard track and something I would try without a winch bar, ( I have recently fitted the uneek bar on mine) But I managed to get through pretty well. I had a good spotter!
yeah videos never do it justice. Which side track do you use to go around?
It's good that you haven't used the hooks yet! I've got a winch now and I didn't use it at all yesterday.
I would get a set of 17 inch rims and offroad tyres when you can cause you'll end up scratching your rims going through that last climb. I have the 20 inch rims and road tyres for road use and 18 inch rims with the offroad tyres for the bush.
Do you let your tyre pressures down?
