    Everest Bullbar

    I finally got the bullbar for my Everest. It has been just on 2 and a half months since I ordered it. Apparently they ran out of them at Shoreline in WA and were waiting for more to arrive. The corona virus held things up so I'm told anyway, it's here and I gave it a coat of paint to try and...

    Prices of parts.

    I'm sorry to say but I have been buying most of my parts online lately. I know it's not good for the local businesses and it is doing people out of work but, let's face it if you can save money who wouldn't. I'm not just talking about a couple of bucks here and there either, I'm talking about...

I'm wondering what sort of tyres you guys have been running successfully on your vehicles. I've got 43k up...

    Hi all, I've had my 2017 Trend 4x4 since new and put off fitting a bullbar till I could source one that I like the look of. I have just ordered an Extreme Series XI bar which is a similar design to a Rhino. I pick it up in a few weeks. I have ordered a pair of 9 inch Kings LED lights and would...

    Old Vs New

    We have all seen people do stupid things on the road and it has been happening since Fred and Barney first stuck L plates on their Mastodons. When I was a kid and on my P's we drove things like EH Holdens and cars of a similar vintage. Back then you had to learn how to drive properly because...

I've had a total of 8 four wheel drives during my 63 years on the planet 6 of which were Toyotas the current one is a 2017 Ford Everest.
