      yes an LC120 would make it up most of the lanes with decent tyres, and underbody protection - otherwise the factory sump guard will be dented a lot
      side steps may also take a hammering, but i have done all the harder lanes in hilux now, without rocksliders and siide steps got pushed up a bit

      only tend to go through shallow rivers these days, have been through water 1m deep (had a snorkel) and no water got in vehicle - i imagine if we had stopped in the water it would have done eventually

      used a winch twice in several years on greenlanes.
      one time i could have used a jack to lift rear end of vehcile, as diff was beached on a rock. but it was raining so winch was quicker!
      the other time, waffleboards would have sufficed i think

      hmmm trying to remember if we have ever backtracked... i dont think so. but i have often done research before a trip and avoided lanes that have become more tricky or driven them in easier direction

      sorry for delay in repling!

      hi Simon

      sorry only just seen notification for your message - normally use ipad and tapatalk to read the forum and i didnt see notificaiton, on pc now

      to find the lanes I use an OS 1:500000 scale map which shows byways marked on it. I also check on the lake district national park website which has maps and tells you whaich lanes are still open, as some marked on OS map as lanes are now closed to vehicles.

      e.g. http://www.lakedistrict.gov.uk/visiting/thingstodo/green_roads

      and i think this one had the maps and details, but link is being slow to open
