custom creations to stir the mind

THERE’S NOTHING like a fully loaded custom rig to get the mind spinning with ideas and concepts for your own 4x4 vehicles. It seems our projects are never completed and every time you see another truck, be it in the metal out on the tracks or on the pages of a magazine such as this one, you’re bound to find something else that lights that globe above your head indicating that the gears are turning and ideas are forming. Brandon Droessler’s gold Hilux on the cover of this magazine is one such vehicle that’ll send your head into overdrive. Brandon started with a bog stocker and really went to town on it to create the rig you see here. And he’s not done yet, as there are lockers set to go…

jl wrangler lands in oz

THE ARRIVAL of the all-new JL Wrangler ends a long wait for Aussie Jeep fanatics, who have waited patiently for this all-new version of the Yank brand’s rugged, iconic off-road model. And the wait has been worth it, with the JL boasting a raft of improvements over the previous-gen JK Wrangler including a new 147kW/450Nm 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine (only available in the Wrangler Rubicon) that accompanies the carried-over 209kW/347Nm Pentastar 3.6-litre V6 petrol donk – both backed by a ZF eight-speed auto and stop/start tech (there’s no manual gearbox option available). Jeep also claims more than 70 standard and optional safety features including autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and loads more. Jeep is claiming a 13 per cent improvement in combined fuel economy on the Pentastar V6, while it is…

whatchya get

THE Sport S features the new Selec-Trac full-time four-wheel drive and is standard with 17-inch alloys, auto headlights (halogen), rear park assist and reversing camera, seven-inch Uconnect touchscreen (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and a soft-top as standard (for a hardtop, you have to tick the box on the Sport S Group option, which includes a three-piece black hardtop, a higher-spec sound system and some other goodies). Sport S owners keen to head off-road should also opt for the Off-Road Pack ($1950) as it brings with it a limited-slip rear diff and beefier Dana M220 rear axle (as fitted to Rubicon), plus 17-x7.5-inch alloys and floor mats.You don’t get the full raft of safety features in the Sport S, but it still offers all the usual: Electronic Stability Control,…

looking ahead

THE option of a diesel-powered Rubicon has been on the Aussie Jeeper’s wishlist for the past decade and is a welcome addition to that model. However, the oiler powerplant does come with somewhat of a caveat: the Wrangler has never been known as a load-lugger and this rings even more true with the diesel Rubicon’s paltry 470kg load capacity. Throw in four burly blokes and their luggage and it’s all over. The lighter-weight petrol Rubicon does slightly better, offering 570kg, but even then, once you add a bullbar up front, roof-rack on top and the aforementioned quartet of boofheads, you’re close to capacity. The significant price increase across the Wrangler range can, perhaps, be slightly justified due to the increased tech featured in the vehicle added to the already highly…
