The Aussies know a thing or two about using recovery gear. Here's a couple more demonstrating both a hand winch, and a snatch strap.

Roosh used to not know a rear end from a differential, but look at him now: a mountain truck expert.

RE: Buying a used Toyota 4Runner
Is it snowing in the Virginia mountains yet? For performance and safety in low traction conditions like rain, snow, and ice, tires are most important. The traction difference between a decent, high-mileage tire and a high performance, low-mileage tire miles is hyuge, whether light truck or passenger car.

Next, take a low mileage, 30-45K mile tire* and cut tiny grooves in the rubber, called micro siping, and it will perform even better in low traction.

Low mileage/high traction tires combined with micro siping and a good ABS system can keep you safe and straight even on the ice.





* Treadwear ratings are manufacturer specific and not directly comparable between brands, but mileage ratings, which have guarantees, more closely correlate to actual treadwear ≠ traction value.

RE: Buying a used Toyota 4Runner
When I read about this story I thought of Roosh's debt-free car:

Quote:American Debt: Auto Loan Balances Total $1.2 Trillion in 2020

Currently only 10% of that is supposedly at risk, but still - an economic downturn will make this balloon to 20-30% easily.

This will bite the people in their asses for sure. I have heard even from men worth 30 mio.$ that they don't dare buy a new car - just a formerly super-expensive Mercedes AMG model that is 2 years old and 60% off the original pricetag (expensive cars often depreciate faster).

Car ownership should be balanced with the wealth, income, likely projected income of that person - then picked a model that fits you. By that account some people buying a Bugatti Veyron may be prudent and modest while for others purchasing a 4yrs Toyota Camry is pure insanity.

This car bubble will pop and you will be able to buy many repossessed cars on the cheap soon.
