Hrm,

Sounds like a "my toy is better than your toy" story.

I've been 4x4ing for years, in a GU Patrol 3.0TDi and I've pulled countless Prado's, Landcruisers, Hiluxes and OTHER PATROLS out of trouble.

Doesn't mean the car isn't any good. Doesn't mean the driver isn't either!

Just means they were having a bad day, or made a mistake. I've made a few of them and ended up on the end of a recovery strap or winch!

I even got pulled out of a bog when I stuffed the approach to a river bank and got stuck half-in half-out.. The recovery car was a Jimney!

I get the feeling that Steve & Shelley are rather new to this sport. I've been towed a number of times but I couldn't give a hoot. My vehicle and driver skills aren't as good as most but what the hoot, I enjoy it and thats what its all about.

I don't get the big deal of a Bravo pulling out a Rodeo. They are similarly capable vehicles.

I've been a passenger in Jackaroo that had to be pulled out of sand by a Feroza. The Jack only got stuck because it was the owner's first outing on sand.

My Monterey was also stuck in soft sand once and had to be pulled by the abovementioned Jackaroo on a later trip.

If you need to be recovered then it really doesn't matter what the vehicle doing the recovery is. As long as the operator knows what they are doing.

There goes a saying;

If you are not living life on the edge...move over.... you're taking up too much room.

In other words if you haven't been stuck in your 4WD at one time or an other then you probably are enjoying it as much as you should.

What ever the reason they got stuck at least they have a story worth spreading around at the next camp fire.
