2008 NISSAN GU PATROL: WINSTON HAWKE
(4x4 Australia Readers' Rigs Winner of the Month)
IT’S STILL a work in progress. Since last December it’s had a fair bit thrown at it: Superior 4-inch Hyperflex kit with five-link radius arms; Raslarr bar work; 4-inch snorkel; sheetmetal front bar, scrub bars, side steps and rear bar; Aurora Custom headlights; Stedi Type-X 8.5-inch driving lights; Gladiator X Comp 35/12.5/17 tyres; OCAM rack with the Darche Eclipse awning; and Titan drawers with a Waeco CF40 fridge. My best runs have been through Tallarook, and an unnamed track beside the reservoir near Warragul Rocks.
