It's that time of year when we dust off the swag and head to the hills for some R&R.
Our Summer 2020 issue is out just in time for the end-of-year festive season, where many of us will use the break to put some well-earned miles beneath our tyres.
To this end, we ventured to some amazing destinations for this issue, and you could do far worse than add these to your to-do list. We traversed the iconic Binns Track in the NT; explored along the Murray River in the Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park in Vic; hit the remote parts Idalia National Park in Qld; and took a bunch of folk from the aftermarket industry to Glenreagh in NSW for the 4X4 Australia Advertisers’ Trip.
Also in this overloaded issue we took a spin in Ram’s 1500 Laramie EcoDiesel and Nissan Navara’s RX cab-chassis. Plus, we pit the only two two-door SWB 4x4 wagons currently on sale in Australia against each other: the Jeep Wrangler Overland and the Suzuki Jimny.
On the custom front we got up close with AFN 4x4’s meticulous work-rig Jimny, as well put a tidy classic FJ45 LandCruiser under the microscope.
Editor Matt headed to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and voted for the 10 best new products at this year’s event, and we’ve spoken to the experts to bring you a comprehensive diff lock buyers’ guide.
