They are Black-Star Caimans



I use them as an off road set on both my LC and Hi-lux.

I don't think it would have made that much difference Smile ,  IMO there were two extremes today easy bits and nearly impassable bits.

Good photos Matthew Laughing

Was a good day all told  Laughing Big thanks to Redneck & PJ from POCUK
for all their hard work.

There where 4x4's getting stuck by the dozen, which was suprising as it
was quite dry. Except the extreme bits which unfortrunately/fortunately
were too narrow by 6 inches to accept a Landcruiser) Laughing
The hill climbs where the best bits in my opinion. Managed to stall going up one hill climb(Yep I stalled an automatic Shocked  Crying or Very sad ) but luckily the 80 held firm. A real credit to its design, and to a set of good tyres Confused  Laughing .
Could be very interesting if the site was wet however, as it was was one big slope; Can imagine most of the 4x4's ending up at the bottom with
no traction. Crying or Very sad  Confused  Shocked  Laughing

We've seen them now  Laughing  Laughing

Seriously though, i think you're exactly right about the passable bits and the extreme bits. I think the extreme bits had been set up for challenge vehicles with serious lift and diff locks etc. Still didn't stop me having a go though  Twisted Evil  Laughing

Yep, you definitely kept trying  8)

I spent over an hour and a 1/2 just cleaning under the car, today with a pressure washer then 20 mins cleaning up the mess that was left on the floor, Bristol mud is sticky as hell  Laughing

Bristol Mud and it had straw mixed in, you could have built a wall with it.  Smile

Yesterday I swapped back the wheels and tyres and spent hours pulling all the mud out, removed the three bash plates and pressure washed them, and washed under again, I think I have it all out now  

I kid you not, it must have added a huge amount of weight to the truck  Shocked

I'm amazed at all the mud traps that are under an LC.  Confused

I suppose i had better put this photo on, give you Landcruiser guys a good laugh  Embarassed



Cheers Mathew Wink
My only consolation is that the LC couldn't pull me out on his own and also had to have a Pajero helping him  Laughing

Did I hear that it took another Toyota (Hilux) + a Paj  to pull you out of another hole?  Very Happy

Only kidding Mike  Smile
