This easy-to-follow reference shares the essential driving and recovery techniques that all four-wheel drive owners need to know. With a rugged cover and spiral binding, the guide is small enough to pop into the glovebox of any 4WD vehicle, but comprehensive enough to cover all the essentials about 4WD driving, including 4WD systems, suspension, wheels and tyres. Discover specific driving techniques for mud, water, sand and rock; learn why steep hills are often the most perilous of four-wheel drive situations and get yourself out of trouble with clear recovery techniques. Each chapter include simple checklists to help drivers prepare for the trip, and ensure the safety of both driver and passengers.
