FORD RANGER WILDTRAK: BRAD MILLER
(4x4 Australia Readers' Rigs Winner of the Month)

MODS include a GMF front bar, three-inch Bilstein lift, BushSkinz bash plates, ARB long-range tank, 33-inch BFG KO2s on 16-inch rims, Rhino-Rack platform roof rack, lift-up cage over tub with Yakima FrontLoader bike racks, EziReach pullout slide, Fabulous Fabrications snorkel, 120amp second battery running Bushman fridge, and tinted windows.

I’ve taken on a few little drives in Queensland, Brindabella Ranges, south coast and Mt Buller.

2009 LAND ROVER DISCOVERY 3: LEE MERRILEES

GEAR includes air suspension with Llams height controller, a Bajarack expedition rack and ladder, long-range fuel tank, ARB bar, and a Runva 11xp Premium winch.

I live in the Vic High Country and spend most trips fairly close by. I love chasing the old cattlemen’s huts.

2007 MITSUBISHI TRITON GLX: JEREME LINDSELL

Bought it new in 2007 and it has just clocked over 320,000km on the 3.2DiD. It’s got a two-inch Ultimate Suspension lift, H3 hummer rims with 285/75R16 BFG muddies, factory rear locker, Scott’s Rodz three-inch exhaust, it’s chipped, and it has homemade drawers.

Best trip was from Coffs to Birdsville … the long way. 

2012 NISSAN NAVARA D22: LUCY EATON

IT’S HAD a three-inch lift and gear includes 32-inch Cooper STT Pros, an In-house Fabrication snorkel and airbox, inbuilt air compressor, and sliders.

The best trip: Moreton Island. The longest trip: Carnarvon Gorge. The next trips: Fraser Island in April and Cape York in August.

TOYOTA HILUX: BILL YOUNG

FAIR few mods that include an EFS two-inch lift, 32-inch KO2s, Safari snorkel, ARB front bar, Rock Armor rear bar and rock sliders, Outback roof console, ARB canopy, custom rear drawer system, and dual batteries with a Redarc system. Plus heaps more!

It’s the family car as the wife drives it more than me. Best trips are to the Vic High Country and Western Australia.

1987 TOYOTA LAND CRUISER TROOPCARRIER: JULIE MADDEN

IT’S pretty well stock and I just did my first solo trip from Northern NSW to Lake Bonney in SA to surprise some friends for New Year’s, so that’s probably my favourite spot at the moment. She is my daily driver, but I can just pack it up and go wherever I would like to.
