2006 TOYOTA TROOPCARRIER 1HZ: BENEDICT SMITH
It was bought for touring the Kimberley region and now used as my tour vehicle. I run Kimberley 4x4 Tours, Custom Adventure tours and tag-along tours throughout the Kimberley region. Mods are many but the latest is four-leaf parabolics, king coils in the front and Tough Dog 45mm adjustable shocks all around. Very happy so far – she gets the job done with no fuss.
2003 TOYOTA LN167R HILUX: MATT BROWNE
What it’s got: 5LE 3.0-litre with aftermarket AXT turbo kit, 4WD Systems front auto Lokka, Ironman Nitro two-inch lift kit, 120-litre fuel tank, TJM bar with Warn winch, and 32-inch Kumho MTs (I have 16-inch wheels when these tyres run out). I have huge plans for engine power, fuel usage and making it run cleaner. Then I have plans for a custom tray to carry water, a Lift Off canopy, a coil conversion and SAS’d front.
1996 TOYOTA LANDCRUISER 80 SERIES GXL: NICK HALL
I’ve had the vehicle for just on five years. It has a two-inch lift, 285 mud tyres, 10,000lb Warn winch, rear drawers, rear bar for spare tyre and jerry cans, roof rack, etc. I’m originally from Tasmania, but I have been living in Victoria for almost six years. I love the Vic High Country and want to go back to Tassie this year to explore the west coast.

Kit includes a 12HT motor and five-speed gearbox swap, long-range fuel tank, solar and dual-battery system, underbody water storage, 30-second awning, Alu-Cab en suite, and rear forward-facing seats. Our favourite place will be a trip to Kingoonya in a couple of days.
