Readers 4x4s Camping stars feature

These 4x4s are made for a happy camper.

To get involved, post a pic and a description of your rig on our special site here or post it to our Facebook page

We feature a bunch of readers’ rigs in the magazine each month, where we award one lucky punter with a $200 voucher to spend at Piranha Off Road.

Show us what you got on Readers' Rigs

1997 MITSUBISHI PAJERO: BRETT GREEN
(4x4 Australia Readers' Rigs Winner of the Month)

It has all you could want: bullbar, winch, custom sliders, dual lockers, long-range tank, dual batteries, custom drawer system, ARB fridge, inverter, water tank, RTT and awning, KM2s, and more.

Best place? I’m not even sure to be honest. Paji went many places in his long life including the Cape, Vic and NSW High Country, Fraser, Moreton Island, as well as all over Queensland and the NT.

2013 TOYOTA LANDCRUISER 200: RICHARD DIXON

GEAR includes a bullbar, rear dual-tyre carrier, drawers, a long-range fuel tank, RTT, dual batteries, winch, two fridges, and more. Best place is Desert Queen Baths in the Pilbara. Done the Simpson Desert, and Kimberley anywhere is just as good.

4x4 Explore: A trip through the Simpson Desert

2008 JEEP JK WRANGLER CRD: MATT THEW

KIT includes front and rear air lockers, OME lift, Fox shocks, front swaybar disconnects, BFG KM3s, Uneek rock sliders, and obviously way too much more to list. Favourite spot? In terms of fun, the Watagans or around Killingworth.

TOYOTA LANDCRUISER 105: WAYNE CHAPMAN

A 105 Series and ‘half an 80 Series’ trailer, and Tucker the Samoyed relaxing in his crate. The 105 has an ARB bullbar, LED lights, lockers (front and rear), drawers and a 180-litre second tank. The trailer has a bed deck with drawers underneath, and a Bundutec Australia three-sided awning.

2013 TOYOTA HILUX SR5: PRINCE DOG

Gear includes ARB barwork (front and rear), canopy, OME lift, BFG A/Ts, Safari Snorkel and some old Lightforce XGTs. Best spot? Most recently the NSW Snowy Mountains, but also Barrington Tops, the Watagans and family day trips to Stockton and Redhead Beaches.

NISSAN NAVARA D40: JAMES BROWN

My stock as a rock D40. Best spot? Cheynes Beach, 70km east of Albany, West Australia; the odd drive into West Cape Howe; and mainly day trips or overnighters from Albany, as that’s where we live.
