TOYOTA HILUX: REMAYNE NAMLISS
(4x4 Australia Readers' Rigs Winner of the Month)

This is the Finke Desert Race track about 100km south of Alice Springs. The car has taken us through all of Western NSW, Flinders Ranges, Outback South Australia, and through the Red Centre of NT.

The car is fitted with: two-inch Outback Armour foam cell lift, Rhino 4x4 bar, OEM canopy, Rhino racks and flat cage on the roof, Cooper ST Maxx tyres (one size up from standard), and a Kings side awning. The car tows a 2006 Ultimate Camper – cracker of a camper.

NISSAN PATROL: MARK WILLSHIRE

Modifications include a 75mm lift, ARB roof rack, snorkel, ARB rear drawers with fridge slide, BFG muddies, LED spotties and light bar, UHF radio, HEMA navigator (original but does the job) and two sets of MaxTrax. Best trip in this was from Kimberley to Pilbara and then back to Adelaide via Great Central Road (17,500km). 

NISSAN PATROL: ADRIAN SZENTESSY

I have owned it since new, in 2005. Lots of mods, from chopped (in 2008) to centre console fridge. Best place is anywhere out of suburbia; it has done lots of remote work.

TOYOTA LC HJ75: KEVIN ROBY

It is standard, with the only mods being an EFS 13,000lb winch and a home-built swing-away tow bar. Favourite spot is Nindigully Pub. My last trip was two weeks along the Murray River.

TOYOTA LC200: STEVE CARIS

It’s only a new build. Mods include Fox 2.5-inch IFP front struts, Black Hawk upper control arms, Nitto Ridge Grapplers (33x12.5R18) and 18-inch black alloy rims. This photo was on Blacksmiths for its first run off-road. Plenty of plans down the track, though.
