April 2018 issue of 4X4 Australia is available March 29

THE April issue of 4X4 Australia will land in stores just in time for the Easter break.

Headlined by a crazy, chopped Y62 Patrol dual-cab ute we reckon Nissan should build, the April issue is packing an arsenal of customised metal in the form of a bonkers BT-50 and an LSA-powered Range Rover.

We also share our thoughts from our first experience behind the wheel of Mahindra’s second-gen Pik-Up and Toyota’s MY18 Prado GXL.

The Toyota Hilux celebrates its 50th anniversary in Australia, so this month we pay tribute to the iconic and successful stalwart of the ute market.

Also in this issue, Ron and Viv Moon took off in search of the graves of the men lost during the famous Burke & Wills expedition, and we also list the best weekend escapes from Adelaide – perfect for the upcoming four-day weekend.


  • Holden 1 Tonner – the strip show begins
  • Patrol Ti-L shed update
  • Water sports at NSW’s Wave Hill Station
  • Radiators explained
  • Time for an alternator upgrade?
  • Gear tests, and monthly rants by Ron and Fraser.

The issue is in stores March 29.
