You will find some of the before and after pictures of my bus. I don't have the MB alloys and the recaro seats in those pics.

I had to be towed on 3-4 four occasions where the slopes were too steep or where there was mud because I didn't have enough traction there. I do think that my previous 5.4R&P transaxle is much better suited for such conditions than the existing 4.5 R&P box.

The last picture is where I had to leave my bus for the nigh which was approx. 50 meters short of the camp site. The angle was too great so it would just slip and the engine would stall cuz of very steep angles cuz it would catch air from somewhere which I still have not been able to rectify.
