last summer while touring in the Ghost wilderness in south west Alberta, I was left dead in the water, "literally" My clutch with 30k on it popped while crossing one of the several already crossed river fords in the "post" 2013 flooded Ghost river. I was way out of reach of any off-road recovery, so I was really left with that shallow empty gut feeling. however, knowing I could sync with the Rpm's, I was able to limp out of the Ghost and back to civilization. Toyota in Red Deer took care of the destroyed clutch, via
warranty. the truck had 70,000km and a new clutch when I bought it. I managed to cook the new clutch, off-roading with around 98,000km when it popped. i'm wondering if a 6 spd was a wrong choice for reliability when off roading? what do you guys have to say?
the attached photo shows me at km marker 28, off the beaten path when she died!
