I agree with you Brian, they are a great vehicle in these conditions however, when going down hill if you donít now how to control the vehicle by the means of the gear box you can get in to major problems and loose control and if that occurs you have no way of stopping a 3 ton plus vehicle sliding where it wants to go. I have been amazed at how many 4X4 drivers Iíve seen going way to quickly thinking they are invincible and they are not, the vehicles have the technology for these conditions its the drivers that donít know how to use it that are at fault. In the are I travel we suffer from flooding so I would be totally lost with without one and Iím sure all the people I have helped during this period of snow, from taking them to the local store or towing them up a hill appreciate a helpful 4X4 driver.

Thanks

Anthony
