I have retired from active 4x4 trips for health reasons due to old age (lol) and a buggered back from too much driving over spinifex. But I had a good innings o 4x4 trips from 1977 starting with the Suzuki Club in Darwin and since then I have seen a fair bit of this country. Still have a Nissan GQ and an Isuzu MUX but the MUX is used for most trips.

Consider the 4WD trip website. My mate's got married and had kids which makes them absolutely useless when it comes to going out these days so I join or organise groups via this website quite frequently.
Hi All,
New here, does anyone know where I can get an oversize oil pan/sump for a 6.5 Chevy optimiser ? I want to increase the oil capacity of the engine from 7/8 litres to 11/12 litres or as much as I can......
Fabrication shops can enlarge the existing pan for not a lot of money really but it depends on how much clearance you have around it.
Hi All
Looking at buying a 4x4 with both Diesel/LPG. Just looking for advise on pros & cons with the LPG on a diesel Ute?

I had LPGon my diesel Delica for over 300k without any issues at all . Cleaner running and about 25% more power . Now bare in mind that was an older style mechanical injection diesel , whether the same will be true on one of the more modern engines I have no Idea , but can't imagine it being anything but a bonus .
where you from ? I'm in sydney, and saw that you maybe buying a rooftop tent and a annex in the up coming trip post for this weekend. Just remember that if you put a tent on racks you wont be able to go into/use under ground car parks... What i did was built a frame on my box trailer. That way i could use it any time i needed to for camping and of course for work too.
Hey mate, I am in Newcastle. I did think about the underground carpark thing and then I considered whether to get rid of the ARB cab and get some bars fabricated to have it lower as I dont really have room for a trailer (despite having a double garage neither of us park in) also would be better as there would be less/no drag?
Live to flex, nothing like being in the bush showi g ya rig off and just doing ya hobby right
