New 4x4 gear: Uniden jumpstart kit + GME Connect range + Piranha recovery kit

New 4x4 equipment released by Uniden, GME and Piranha Offroad

IF your old man has a tendency to break down or get bogged when off the beaten track, then these Father's Day gift ideas might be right up his alley.


UNIDEN has unveiled its UPP1000 jump-start kit, which is powerful enough for both petrol- and diesel-powered 4WD vehicles. A great little peace-of-mind gear to keep stored away, just in case the engine fails to fire out beyond the black stump. The UPP1000 has a start current of 500amp and a peak current of 1000amp, and can jump-start petrol engines up to seven litres in capacity, and diesel engines up to five litres. It also comes with smart clamp protection, so the battery doesn’t overload, and an IP67 rating.
RRP: $199.95

GME has added the XRS Connect Outback Pack to its range of XRS Connect UHF CB radios. A key feature of the Bluetooth-enabled Connect range includes the XRS Connect smartphone app control. Other features include an anti-glare OLED display and super-durable construction for remote, rugged conditions, as well as a professional-grade microphone, 2.1dBi Radome antenna, and user-customisable buttons. Made in Australia, the Outback Pack comes with a five-year warranty.
RRP: $629

A recovery kit is an essential tool for any off-roader, and you’ll be spewing if you don’t have one when your axles are deep in mud. The Piranha Offroad Heavy Duty Kit comes with all the required tools: an 8000kg snatch strap, a winch extension strap, 12,000kg tree trunk protector, a snatch block, bow shackles, a pair of gloves and a durable carry bag. Spend now, save later, we say. Ensure you have a winch-equipped 4x4, otherwise this kit won’t be much use.
RRP: $289
