SE­CURE THE VE­HI­CLE

4 x 4 Australia - - 4x4 Techniques -

YOU’VE got two meth­ods to se­cure the 4x4. One is the en­gine. Un­less you’re driv­ing a com­pres­sion­less 30-year-old Landcruiser, it should be able to hold you in place, even in high-range. You’ll also have your foot on the brake, but tak­ing your foot off the pedal is a gam­ble. Pull the hand­brake on as far as you can, without it be­ing awk­ward to re­lease. If you’re in that one-in-a-mil­lion sit­u­a­tion you may still slide back­wards as you stall. If that’s the case, see the ‘When it all goes wrong’ break­out.
