I was surprised too, rear was locked and honestly not that bad. Front right found a bottomless pit. I found a 6 foot long pipe and could push its entire length into the muck by that tire. It was crazy when were finally able to pull it, the whole front popped right back on top of firmer ground and I backed up under the trucks own power. I’ve been stuck much worse in other vehicles and not had to work so hard.
I had an off road situation in loose shale/Rock recently where the vacuum operated hub locks would not stay locked or engage at all. I got out and manually locked the front hubs I was able to keep going up hill in one instance, and back uphill out of trouble in the other. I've heard from several sources that the vacuum actuators can be finicky. I plan to have them looked at when I take it in for my first oil change.

Awesome photo! I was able to take a trip out to Zion in February. I loved it out there. The weather was perfect, the little town was nice to walk around at night and some great hiking.

Interesting, mine were not manually locked, but definitely engaged and spinning

Suggest that you buy one of these and keep it onboard - will allow a smaller vehicle (maybe one truck and not two) to get you out.

I never liked the vacuum hubs. I prefer off and on. I always manually engage the hubs to be sure. Considered a dynatrac free spin kit in the past.

Nice Yamaha. How do you like it on the trails?
Thank you! We love it on the trails. Has a few essential mods that make it work well! Gear reduction, full skids & 30” tires all help!

So I have to admit that it’s taken some time for me to take off the hitch and see what this thing can do. Well I did it this morning. Holy buckets this truck is BADASS! I have a trail that I ride the dirt bikes on and it has a spot that is a mess and I’ve always been ordered how it Tremor would do. Well, I’ll let’s the pics do the talking.

By the way, I should have done some editing before I sent this. Guess I was excited to share. Ha!

Doing some work this morning. Have had the truck for A few weeks and this was the first chance to hook a trailer up, taking a few steers for processing.
