In this second edition of the bestselling 4WD Handbook, four-wheel drive expert and author Robert Pepper provides an in-depth explanation of how 4WDs work. He shares practical techniques for hill-driving, sand-driving, water crossings, as well as driving in mud, snow and sand.
In this revised second edition, Pepper includes techniques, photographs and technology from the very latest vehicles. This second edition also includes new chapters regarding off-road towing, choosing a vehicle and driving unfamiliar vehicles.
This guide also provides comprehensive explanations of how to get yourself out of trouble — always a possibility when exploring challenging terrain — with detailed chapters regarding recovery techniques.
