THE monster July 2018 issue of 4X4 Australia will be on shelves June 21.
Picking up a copy of the July 2018 issue of 4X4 Australia magazine will also net you episode 3 of the 4X4 Adventure Series DVD to the Vic High Country. In this final Vic High Country episode, off-road icon Ron Moon leads the crew from the Dargo Hotel and on to Mount Blue Rag, Talbotville goldfields, through the Wonnangatta Valley and up the flanks of Mount Stirling.
A massive nine-way ute comparo takes up a good portion of the mag this month, with Merc’s X-Class fronting up to all of its main rivals in an on- and off-road showdown.
Two killer customs also turned a few heads at 4X4 HQ: a BJ40 with a beefy 4.5-litre TDV8, and a neat D-Max tinkered to perfection.
Our Vic High Country trip highlighted why it’s one of Australia’s best off-road destinations; we list five quick escapes close to Darwin in the top end; and we’ve managed to squeeze in an Ultimate Buyers’ Guide for off-road tyres.
