    I suppose this could work for some of us as long as you had the body clearance. It would also need to be fixed on both drive wheels due to the action of the diff.

    I have a set of "Mud Paddles" but luckily I haven't yet found the need to use them.
    They are in my kit as "Insurance" :D

    Interesting, I thought at first it would only work if you have a diff lock but in theory it should work with the Fiat traction+ .

    OK? So we need an investigation, as to how the opposition got hold of the SAS Dessert survival manual!. Wiki-Leaks??. Does "Call me Dave" Know?. Expensive committee of MP`s to report in about a decade?. And Did Achmed get his sand bag, and Strop back?
