The October edition of 4X4 Australia hits stores today, September 8.
Overflowing with off-road content, this issue also comes with a bonus LowRange DVD strapped to its back.
We take an in-depth look at a meticulously transformed FJ45, we explain how to spend your dollars wisely when building to a budget, and we take a first drive of Holden’s new Colorado (and drive it back-to-back with a Hilux).
We also reveal some of the Kimberley’s hidden secrets, and take a look at the build process of a mighty custom FJ Cruiser.
In the meantime, here’s what else is in this dazzling October issue:
FIRST DRIVE: 2017 COLORADO
The 2017 Holden Colorado has arrived to shake up the 4x4 establishment. We take it for a first drive.
READY TO RULE THE ROOST
Does the arrival of Mitsubishi’s Pajero Sport spell the end for the ‘old’ Pajero?
We pit the new Colorado up against the class-leading Hilux. Can it keep up with the market leader?
BUILDING TO A BUDGET
Regardless of how big the number is in your savings account, there’s a 4x4 build suitable for any budget.
Transformed from a make-shift dog kennel to one of the best FJ45 Troop Carriers in the world!
The versatile Fuso Canter 4x4 is a viable option as an ultimate expedition rig. We take one to the Vic High Country.
An immaculate custom FJ Cruiser that’s certain to become a cult classic.
