Finally got the Cruiser up into the Vic High Country to test out the Traction & Crawl Control systems..

Crawl Control:
I have to admit 1st up looking down Steep track.. Turning centre diif lock Off putting into D, (Drive Auto), hitting the Crawl Control button * taking the foot off everything had me tighten the butt cheeks! Just goes against the grain! Anyway it works but going down it makes one hell of a racket & I can see it would be hard on the brakes.. Stopping, reengaging the centre Diff Lock & putting in low 1st saw it walk down with no issues so for the life of me can't see why you would use going down hill.. Up hill different matter absolutely brilliant & will use it without hesitation.

Traction control:
This being the 1st 4WD I've owned with it, I can say I can't see why others have complained about it, (I can only think that for it to be an issue tyre pressures may not have been right), I always air down off road to about 20PSI & will go lower if required, I found the Cruisers traction control brilliant & only noticed it on a few occasions via a flash or click..

The Unichip is fantastic On & Off Road, Towing our New 3 Ton fully Loaded Off Road MDC XT17T is incredible power is at hand if needed & not that I'm overly concerned economy was surprising on our last trip to Omeo averaged 17.5 going & 16.8Litres per 100ks on return trip.

Here's the new Van:

Flash bit of gear, The old saying that a master looks like his dog is true, can't work out which is the boss though.

.....can't work out which is the boss though.
It IS a very flash bit of gear - the whole outfit!! And having seen it close up, it just makes me even more jealous than the pics do!! :o

As for working out which of those two is the boss, it only takes a very short while of watching them both together to work out which one actually rules the roost!! :p :lol:
An Ex-Service person is someone who thought enough about their country & how great it is, how lucky we are to live here, to write a blank cheque made out to 'The People and Commonwealth of Australia' for the value of 'Up to & including my Life!'

Just lock both up in a warm room for 5 minutes. The one that loves you when you open the door is the dog..... ;-)
The one that will make you run is the other one....
