I have two sets of wheels for the car: 17x9 OX wheels wrapped in 285/70/17 tyres, and a set of Ballistic 20x10 wrapped in a 33/12.5/20 tyres -Ishty Fulop


I just bought the Patrol and have a lot of plans to make it my own. Owned it for about six hours before we had it in low range and towing through mud holes -Jess Pink


Gear includes Fuel rims on 33-inch Cooper ST Maxx tyres; flat fender flares; XHD front bar, rear bar and rockers; Tough Dog two-inch lift; Panhard bars; winch; LED head- and tail-lights; light bar with HIDs; Rhino-Rack; Kings awning; 40-litre water tank; MaxTrax; farm jack; heat-reduction bonnet; aftermarket grille; AEV snorkel; and a Uniden UHF -Kris Willis


My Cruiser features upgraded suspension; 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler all-terrains; TJM bar work; UHF; and a rear locker -Chris Loxton


I’ve done all the work myself. It’s coil-converted and features a Patrol front diff and 80 rear; twin lockers; front and rear winches; a roll cage; and an LS1 turbo -Jay Drummond


Three-inch lift; 20-inch rims; LED lights; halo ring lights; oil catch can; three-inch stainless steel exhaust system; and a custom rack. The custom paint is a head-turner; everyday people come up to me a say it’s the most beautiful Ranger – one guy said he was gobsmacked. The interior is stunning, with a custom tablet and diamond-stitched floor. The engine is all painted and detailed, too. It will be finished by the end of November; I just have a stainless steel snorkel, custom airbox and lights to be fitted -Craig Freeman
