STEVE’S NAVARA 550 STX
Steve picked up his 2012 Navara early on in 2014 – for the other half to run as her daily drive. On the weekends however it becomes the tow rig for their JB Caravans Scorpion. He’s added ARB bars both front and rear, a set of drawers in the back and a Frontier long-range tank. He’s also got an Old Man Emu 2-inch lift keeping it up out of the dirt.
So far the Nav’s done a couple of big trips: From Kings Canyon to the Alice via the Ernest Giles Road, and a run from Melbourne to Darwin and back again straight up the guts of our massive continent.
STU’S 200 SERIES
Stu picked up this ’07 200 Series to be the tourer, and also for daily duties. Since he got it, he’s thrown the works at it. First off the bat was the ARB winch bar housing the Lightforce 170 Series lights, an AirMax snorkel, and a set of Outback drawers in the back. Keeping the beer cool there’s a Waeco fridge on the drawers, an Outback overhead console, and an Icom F2010 UHF radio, as well as a Codan 9323 HF radio. Not a bad way to set up a 200 Series for remote touring through the back of the Northern Territory and South Oz.
ANDREW’S KJ CHEROKEE
Andrew’s little KJ Cherokee is the epitome of just get out there and do it. So far the mods have only been a light bar, 40mm EFS lift kit, a cargo barrier, and slightly bigger tyres. With just these minimal mods he’s able to get out there and go touring… as you can see in the photo of the KJ up in the Brindies out the back of Canberra after some snow.
GREG’S PXII RANGER
Greg picked up this PXII Ranger brand spanking new just on two years ago. Built as a towing/touring rig, it has a rather respectable mods list. So far it’s got a Safari Snorkel, ARB Summit front bar, TJM side steps and rear bar, and XJS 4000 shocks riding on a 50mm lift and 450kg constant load springs. There’s also a set of Ironman 4X4 rear drawers, a 140L LRA long-range tank, a Projecta system looking after the 12V and solar systems, and a Redarc Towpro Elite helping to pull the new Coromal caravan up.
