Fair point, but in the 20" of snow that fell in Toronto on Sunday our Landrover
had no problems on the unploughed roads. I wouldn't have attempted to take
the 5ktq down the drive never mind onto the street (until the ploughs went by).
I wonder how many of the Landrover owners with wrecked transmissions
bothered to engage the center diff locks..... In fact I wonder how many of the
(recently sold) Landrovers in NA have ever had their center diff lock engaged or
low gears used.
The missus was well impressed with the Landy with the center diff locked.
