93 4x4 Toyota Hilux Pickup Off Roading in mud... Leaf spring snap
Taking my toyota through some mud and breaking a rear leaf spring... listen for the snap near the end of the video.
Basically I'm trying to get through this mud and up onto the grass or boggy turf.... unsuccessful, I break a rear leaf in the process. It has since been fixed and re-enforced with an extra leaf on both sides!
Truck is a 1993 Toyota Hilux 4x4 4 cylinder with 33" mud/trail tires, 7inch lift consisting of 4inch suspension, 3 inch body lift. 5 speed manual in LOW RANGE 4x4, Cannot drive in High through mud its too hard on the motor!
