It’s shiny and you can hold it in your hand: it’s the latest edition of 4x4 Australia and it’s packed with all things 4x4.
The October edition of 4X4 Australia is on shelves now. Inside we check out the new Ford Everest, the updated Ford Ranger and send a pack of modified Amaroks to battle it out at Queensland’s Land Cruiser Mountain Park.
We also have a gander at a stretched Toyota Hilux and a modded-up Dark Label Amarok that’ll have you buying a bucket-load of lotto tickets.
In the meantime, here’s a sniff of what else is inside:
V8 Nissan Patrol custom
This off-road monster is equipped with an arsenal of weapons-grade mods including a stonking V8 diesel engine. We took it for a run in the mud.

We tackle Deua National Park’s insanely steep climbs and descents.

Coongie Lakes, SA

Here’s a bolt-in, wide-track coil spring suspension that improves the 70 Series on a number of fronts – bingo!

It’s been a review almost six years in the making: Scott Heiman sees how his Speedliner tub liner has held up.
A ute is stamped from sheet metal, robotically welded and moved along a high-tech production line. Turns out, so are these metal canopies.
Twozone box fridge
The Twozone box attaches to your fridge to create two cooling zones and to increase capacity. We loan it a beer and have a look.
Tough Dog suspension upgrade
Standard Nissan Navara D22 suspension leaves a lot to be desired. Tough Dog has a fix.
Bridgestone Dueler M/T
Is it worth changing from all-terrains to these Bridgestone muddies? Our man Stu reckons so.
It took GT longer than three seconds to put it up, but Oztent’s Malamoo is still pretty handy.
