Thinking about building some Tracks for my Car

When speaking with some of my friends from the 4×4 community, they were rather scathing of my choice of off road vehicle.

I have a 2001 RAV4 4WD as my hunting/general day to day car.
and apparently this isn’t very good in “real off-road” bashing

car

But, the thing is ..
I already own it.
Its paid off.
its in great condition and has done low mileage.
They are common as dirt and parts are still easy to get and cheap.
Its lighter on fuel than many others.

some down sides
no diff lock, only limited slip EBD/abs
not great ground clearance.
Tyres are more for road then off road as its in use mostly on road

So what’s the solution ?

well i was thinking about getting a set of tracks
like these

these lift the car by at least 40 mm — up-to as much as 100mm making the ground clearance a lot better …

they should take about an hour to fit and can be store inside the car or on a trailer

this should allow me to keep up with the best in the conditions that they usually go off-roading on
