Get the winch out

We all spend a lot of money buying ‘4WD’ gear…winches, max trax, mud tyres etc…but its often the gear you rarely use especially on trips in the ‘dry’ around the Kimberley region.


We had a day yesterday that confirmed why its so important to make sure you’ve got the kit before you head bush. Camped on the banks of the Fitzroy River in the Kimberley region of WA we had 50mm of unexpected rain overnight. The road in the morning was awash with glue like mud and with thunder clouds looming and a river to cross to get out we decided to make a run for it.

Thank god for Max Trax.

    Interesting photos! Thanks!
    But can you make them larger?

  2. We need to get a winch – one of the last mods to do. How good are Maxtrax though?! The easiest way to recover your fourby!
