2019 MAZDA BT-50 EXTRA CAB : REECE STEVENS
(4x4 Australia Readers' Rigs Winner of the Month)
It has a three-inch lift and runs 33s, ARB bar work, Superior Engineering upper control arms, bash plates, dual batteries, custom tune with a DPF delete and a three-inch exhaust.
2016 TOYOTA LANDCRUISER 200: RANTO RANTON
It’s fairly stock at the moment, but it’s running Stedi nine-inch Pro spots, Fuel Beast rims, a Rhino-Rack Platform, ITeCH lithium auxiliary battery and charger, MSA drop slide, custom drawers and Ironman slider/steps.
2018 MITSUBISHI MQ TRITON BLACKLINE: DAVE ALLEN
It’s set up for camping. Kit includes an ARB Summit Bar, Canopy and Trade Rack, a dual-battery setup with Redarc charger, an ARB 47-litre fridge, ARB driving lights, a Darche 270 awning and Black Duck seat covers.
1996 JEEP CHEROKEE: STEVEN CONNELLY
Apart from a set of 30-inch muddies, she’s stock as a rock. The XJ must surely be one of the most capable 4x4s straight out of the box! Still plenty of adventure left in the old girl yet.
2003 NISSAN PATROL (TB48): DG BROOKE
Gear includes three-inch Dobinson coils and shocks, dual batteries, homemade rooftop tent, winch and 35-inch MTZ tyres. The engine has not been touched, with 345,000km on the odo.
