I have seen a lot of people ask about what gear is a must in a recovery kit....
I have found that a throttle cable doesnt go astray.... You may think it is silly but wait till you brake one....

Take a leaf out of the WRC (world rally champs) book, have seen many occasions where the co-driver has to whip out the laces from their shoes and set up to pull the throttle body manually through the window ! Have also seen one crew finish a stage with the bonett up on the windscreen , drivers head out window, co-driver laying across the engine bay working the throttle to the calls of the driver. Looked like fun NOT... These guys come up with some amazing tricks to finish races.

Seriously, yeah not a bad idea, could be stuffed in behind a panel real easy.

We broke a throttle cable a Mitsubitshi truck when I used to work weekends as a furniture removalist for Telstra. We hooked up a bunch of mouse leads from the PC's we were carrying at the threaded it through the grill, under the bullbar into the cab. Worked a treat as a hand throttle to get us back to the warehouse.

If the GU is the same as the GQ the hand cable only goes to the pedal...

if you brake a accelerator cable , why not just screw the revs up a little , you wont fly , but you will get home . 1200 rpm , should be good for 70kmh

What spares have u used before, that may give u a guide. and if u have a 3.0 Patrol maybe a spare short motor could be useful

I once drove the old suzuki home using plastic clothesline rope for a throttle cable - had to stop every 50 km or so to retension it :)
