4X4 Australia’s September issue hits stores on August 11.
Brimming with off-road content, this issue features another edition of Roothy’s LowRange DVD to add to your collection.
In the mag you’ll find a battle-hardened Australian Patrol Vehicles’ LRPV, an all-Ford desert shoot-out between the Everest wagon and Ranger ute and an exclusive behind-the-scenes drive with Holden’s new Colorado.
Grab the latest copy of 4X4 Australia from newsagents, or get it before everyone else by subscribing to 4X4 Australia in electronic or print format.
What you’ll get this month:
A 79-series LandCruiser like you’ve never seen before. This one’s an LRPV from Australian Patrol Vehicles.
EVEREST v RANGER
Scooting up the Oodnadatta Track with a pair of Fords. Does Ford’s ute or wagon handle the dust better?
STOCK HILUX ON THE CSR
We challenge a showroom-stock Hilux to overcome one of Australia’s harshest, most brutal roads.
BEHIND THE SCENES WITH THE NEW COLORADO
We climb into the new Colorado for an exclusive R&D drive with a team of Holden engineers.
This custom D40 Nissan Navara proves you don’t have to mortgage the house to craft the ideal off-road tourer.
We hit sunny Moreton Island in Queensland for some R&R with the 4x4 aftermarket industry’s best and brightest.
12-VOLT FRIDGE TEST
With so many portable fridges on the market, we thought we’d find out which one is most deserving of your hard-earned.
OLD ANDADO TRACK, NT
Pack the 4x4 and take off on a remote adventure that showcases all the desert has to offer.
BORDER RANGES NP, NSW
A relaxing and inspiring trek through the world heritage-listed national park.
OVER AND ABOVE
Aussie products are infiltrating the European markets, so we went to check them out at the Abenteuer & Allrad 4WD and Overland expo.
First, get the 4x4 you desire. Second, replace the independent front with a live axle. Voila, you’ve got the best of both worlds!
A heap of new gear is tried and tested, plus we show you the art of winch redirection. Dean Mellor takes his Navara to the snow, Ron Moon attempts to discover the true centre of Australia, Roothy gives Milo a fresh lick of paint and Fraser Stronach reveals the flaws in fuel consumption figures. Enjoy!
