    Hey Waheeb, where is the photo where we had to come and recover you during lunch time after getting stuck in the mud on the old dump site?

    Default Finally got the Jeep stuck

    Today at Hennops I got the Jeep stuck. More due to lack of concentration and wrong approach angle.

    I got the Jeep out, with a couple of stones under the wheels.

    If you got yourself out you were not really stuck, you were only delayed

    New to getting stuck on my own.

    Having just acquired my Terracan before a visit to soft Kgalagadi park I got very badly stuck in soft sand. We were looking at one of the off road campsites within the park when we got seriously belly stuck in soft powder sand. ABS light and hand brake light were illuminated on dashboard. Front wheels would not turn but back wheels just dug deeper until I was resting on undercarriage. Lots of digging and eventual recovery by a passing Fortuna. How do you prevent ABS engaging in a stuck situation. I would never have got out on my own as I was only able to use vehicle as a 2 wd ?

    Do you mean ABS or traction control. I found with my Disco2's traction control if the steering is turned full lock the traction control does'nt engage in sand.

    disabling ABS is a helluva mission, just ask the colt drivers. but worth it if you can get it right.
    Why did you say you could only use it as a 2WD? Dont follow. Is a terracan permanant 4WD or temp?

    Skies, Vrydag besluit en saterdag gebel. Sal vlogende keer onthou.

    Bennie die Jeep was vas. Linker agter wiel het my gat gered toe ek die landy se klip gebriuk het onder die wiel. Nou moet ek net kyk vir 'n sterker bumper soek en iemand die uitlaat pyp sal hammer.

    Thanks Spike, Dirk and Berty for your replies

    Dirk - You ask ABS or traction control. all I know the ABS warning light was on on the dashboard as well as the hand brake light. Obviously hand brake was not engaged, I could not get the ABS light to turn off despite putting into 2WD or trying low range nothing would change and the front wheels would not move at all. The vehicle stayed in 2 wheel drive despite 4WD being engaged and just dug in deeper.

    Berty - My Terracan is permanent 2WD but can be changed to 4wd or 4 Low range
