SA 4x4 - Jan - Winning Letter

Post by JohnBoyZA » 01 Feb 2015 10:30

I see the winner letter is about Hilux that gets stuck on the beach in Pomene. Then there is reference to a LR that tries to assist the stick Toy, but eventually a Patrol to the rescue. Wondering if it was a forum member?

It is not clear exactly when that happened, but from reading it now, it seems it happened a while back. I would not be surprised if it was Bogeyman though.
Note in the last paragraph the author states, about the engine and gearbox "...these are all sealed units and no sea water could have got in..."
But what about the diff breathers?
