GEAR! That one word gets every off-road tourer excited. It means many things to many people, but the end result is the same: driving a 4x4 with all the essential accessories fitted to it means there’s nowhere you can’t take yourself and your family on an adventure.
We are definitely spoilt for choice here in Australia, with some of the world’s best aftermarket companies based here and producing high quality kit for off-road vehicles.
Not only do these companies build top-notch stuff, they ensure it is safe for the end user and it complies with the relevant regulations governing this – as we explain in this Gear Guide’s feature story on what goes into making gear that is legal and compliant with regulations.
For us here at 4X4 Australia, the sheer volume of gear available means plenty of real-world testing – itself a great excuse to get out in the bush. Our experts’ decades of extensive touring and testing experience has resulted in yet another cracking Gear Guide, with this one chock-full of expert advice and concise reviews as a result of all that time spent testing it out in the field.
For our readers, this Gear Guide is a veritable goldmine of info and allows you to then make the smartest decision possible as to what awesome piece of equipment gets fitted to your rig. Once that decision is made, the fun begins: kitting out a vehicle for that long-dreamed of adventure and then simply getting out there.
The 2019 Gear Guide is available just in time for Christmas, from December 17. Enjoy!
