Four Wheel Drive - High Range should be engaged when driving on gravel roads. There are many reasons why this is beneficial.
I am not aware of any 'Hill Decent Control' that controls gearing,
Lol, don't drink your coolant, gees you would have to be desperate.
Anyone who finds this article/videos useful definitely needs to attend a course or spend a decent amout of time 4wheeling with experienced drivers...
Thanks for your feed back Nick. I think your analogy might be a little off target there. I was not suggesting that members are idiots and need to relearn (although I have seen some out there that should not have a licence let alone a 4x4). What I am saying is that we are always learning and a bit of a refresher is a good thing. I am a certified 4x4 driving instructor and trip leader and I have yet to meet the person that knows everything there is to know about driving in the bush.
