DOWN SHE GOES

4 x 4 Australia - - Techniques -

WHAT goes up must come down. And just as lift­ing your 4x4 should be a slow and con­trolled process, the same goes when drop­ping it. In the hose you’ll have a one-way valve that al­lows gases to travel into the jack, but not back out. Grab the valve and slowly twist it open to de­flate the jack. You’ll want to crack it just enough that if the ve­hi­cle be­gins low­er­ing in an un­safe man­ner you can quickly stop the flow of gases and halt the de­scent.
