    I would imagine at 22 years old your Hilux will have freewheeling hubs that you have to get out to engage into 4wd. I'd make sure before you need this facility that it works and having done so make sure you engage 4wd before you get stuck in the mud in 2wd. Auto box for off roading is usually good. If you do get slightly bogged down it is easy to flick between drive and reverse.

    ...king nonsense! I have got an automatic landcruiser which I use across some very difficult ground and have used it use to pull out stuck manual landies, Troopers and Fourtracks. I think that all Range Rovers and almost all discoveries now are automatic, do you really think they get stuck at the first sniff of patch of mud?
