    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    I have seen two guys in Toyota utes using a snatch strap from towball to towball. Having seen how they got stuck I realised trying to give friendly advice wasn't an option so stayed behind my 4by. Luckily on that occasion no one was killed so they will continue under the delusion that it's safe.

    Folks, I just saw something a little concerning.
    I was just Driving behind a 4wd who had a snatch strap hanging out of his canopy ...
    Car was putrid so he's obviously been off the tarmac.
    Nothing unusual , see that often.

    However . At the end of the strap was flat plate with an eyelet that was hooked over his towball.
    It almost looked like a huge bottle opener. And this didn't look like a home job either , looked like a professionally made bit of gear.
    I couldn't take a snap of it as I was driving ...
    But has anybody seen anything like it before ???
