WE’VE got the perfect solution to escape the bitter cold of winter.
Light the fire, grab a bottle of your favourite tipple, pull up a comfy chair, and flick through our latest issue of 4X4 Australia.
The cracking August issue is headlined by two massive comparisons – Hilux TRD v Ranger FX4 and Trailhawk v Everest – and some seductive custom machines – Orange JK Rubicon and an HSV-tuned H3 Hummer.
We also head to some stunning locations including the Red Centre, Stockton Beach and the Kennedy Range.
