Travelling with more experienced four-wheel drivers is a great way to learn skills without fear of getting stranded. The vehicle Light-duty four-wheel drives There is much confusing data about 4WD vehicles. Sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and crossover vehicles are not covered in much detail in this book. On one side of the coin we have the ‘real’ 4WD, the basis of this book. On the other side there are similar vehicles with new technology, with many commonly called sports utility vehicles while others are known as crossover vehicles.

Quite a few early models are still going, many of these with three-speed gearboxes. For some manual vehicles after-market overdrives are available. This makes the normal four forward gears into eight, or five speeds into ten, providing a gear for virtually any situation. These additional mini-gearboxes are expensive, but the vehicle’s performance and much-improved abilities makes them worth every cent of their cost. If there is any drawback, it might be the extra gear lever sticking up out of the transmission tunnel .

In a forward direction about 85 per cent-plus of braking is on the front wheels, which are normally disc-braked. Drum brakes can still be used, but you need strong leg muscles to hold the vehicle stationary on a hill. Quite a lot of extra pedal pressure will be needed to stop the vehicle without engine-driven power assistance; likewise, the handbrake will need to be pulled on really hard to hold the vehicle. Tip A tailshaft drum-handbrake may be old-fashioned but it is very effective, and when it is adjusted properly is usually more effective than a rear-wheel drum-handbrake.
