DON’T let the cooler months stop you from hitting some bog trails in your 4x4. Here’s some aftermarket kit that’ll encourage you to get off the couch and into the bush!
THUNDER AUTO DRY BAG
KEEP all of your important gear water-free when exploring wet areas, be it caving, kayaking or just taking a dip in the ocean near some dubious-looking people who’d nick your wallet from your shoe given the chance.
Thunder’s Dry Bag is made from heavy duty PVC and features welded seams and a folding lock system to keep it water-tight. With 35 litres of storage, it won’t be a burden to lug around on your next adventure.
NAVMAN DRIVE DUO SUV
THE Navman Drive Duo SUV is the adventurer’s ultimate wingman. It combines a 6in GPS and dashcam and is jam-packed with features including 4WD off-road routing, lifetime maps, live traffic updates, Lonely Planet’s travel guides, and the Zomato restaurant guide.
The MiVue dashcam features include a new adjustable neck, Super 2K Full HD recording, ADAS features, G shock sensor and an optional rear dashcam.
BAJA DESIGNS S2 SPORT LED
LED lighting is all the rave, and Baja Designs has released the compact S2 Sport to sit alongside its S2 Pro auxiliary lighting system. The lightweight package is designed to reside in spaces on a 4x4 where standard lights struggle to fit.
The lights have a very low amperage draw, making them ideal for applications which have limited electrical output (ATVs, for example). Head online for a full list of specs and features.
RRP: From $109.95
LONG RANGE AUTOMOTIVE 125L EVEREST FUEL TANK
RECKON the Everest’s factory 80-litre tank isn’t big enough? Long Range Automotive has launched a 125-litre replacement tank for the UA Ford Everest, which will take you the distance to many of Australia’s hard-to-reach destinations.
The new tank retains the original’s ground clearance, and it’s again mid-mounted. The Aussie-made tank is manufactured from 2mm aluminised steel, and is etch-primed and finished in silver hammertone enamel.
RRP: $1700 (fitted)
