Hey guys! I do have some updates to get posted but until then here is our latest video of the Tacoma showcasing some impressive downhill control:

 
                                                                       

YouTube - Downhill with NO driver in a 2016 Toyota Tacoma

                                                                                         
 

Let me know what you guys think about this video!

Been done for years, it's called a "Bush Winch". If you have duals on the drive axle it's as simple as a bar between the rims and the cable wraps around rims.  If you think hydraulic winchs are powerful, imagine a winch powered by a 500hp motor with 1800ft/p of torque.
