    User name no longer your weapon of choice

    When I first signed up to 4x4 Earth, I drove a 2003 Hilux. Since then I have had a Disco and now a 2008 Prado. Who else has a vehicle within their username but no longer have it. What do you drive now? I know of a few on here, and the main culprits seem to be Hilux based.

    Photos of Mossy. Not the Cold Chisel one.

    I finally found time to take my new Prado to get dirty on the weekend. We went for a drive into the Watagans to a few favourite spots. Only being armed with my phone for a camera didn't stop me from finding things to photograph. One of the stops was a place called Boarding house dam, where we...

    Congratulations! Its a.... 2008 Prado

    So after changing jobs a few months ago, I thought why not sell the Disco and change my car too. So after combing the interweb on and off, and a 4 hr round trip to look at it, I settled on this. Its a 2008 Prado, Auto V6. The previous owner looked after it well too. Along with a full service...

    Stockton Beach After The Storms

    As many of you that have travelled the east coast of NSW, you would have driven Stockton Beach and grabbed a few happy snaps of the Sygna shipwreck. After the severe low that brought storms and heavy swell to Newcastle over the weekend, Stockton has again changed for ever. The large heavy swells...

    O2 Sensors

    I recently had to replace the O2 sensors on my '99 Discovery 4.0ltr V8. That bit I had no issue with, but paying $165 each, I did. I read on a facebook forum that BA Falcon sensors will do the trick, but the plugs either have to be changed or an adapter harness made. Does anybody know where I...

    Currumbin Anzac Ceremony

    I have just watched on the news that Currumbin RSL is thinking of down sizing next years dawn service because it is costing them too much. The news said last years cost the RSL $240,000 to do, and this years has already blown budget. My question is, should the Local, State and Federal...

    Who has 4wded Overseas? ( I don't mean water crossings either)

    I cannot recall a specific thread about forumites doing any 4wding while overseas, so I thought I'd start one and see where it goes. Feel fee to share your own experiences, and include pics. ( Remember, If there's no proof, it didn't happen) I haven't, but am hoping to do a little when I go...
