2019 is shaping up as a massive year

THANKS to the magic of magazine deadlines this is being written in our first week back in the office for 2019. And it’s already shaping up to be a great year for new 4x4 launches, with a few new vehicles confirmed … and then there are the ones we’re speculating will happen this year. The first new 4x4 for the year will have landed by the time you’re reading this. The new Jimny from Suzuki has been one of the most anticipated, as it continues the tradition of a great little 4x4 that knows how to leave behind much bigger and more expensive fourbies. It should be a lot of fun and we can’t wait to get behind the wheel of it. One we were lucky enough to get a sneaky drive…

brown davis turns 40

A 40TH BIRTHDAY is always a big occasion, so it’s only fitting that Aussie long-range fuel tank manufacturer, Brown Davis, made sure it celebrated its own four decades of business in true off-road style, with a High Country weekend away. Cameron Brown and his dad (and founder) David didn’t want to keep it a private affair, though, inviting a slew of industry mates to the party. Piranha Off Road’s Al Johnson drew on his decades of Victorian High Country touring experience to lead the convoy of vehicles including Piranha Off Road, Lightforce, TJM and more. The vehicles on the trip were a mix of new and old, with the old represented by Al’s 60 Series Land Cruiser and the Brown Davis 1978 FJ40 Land Cruiser short-wheelbase rig. A heavily modified Cruiser…

msa driving mirrors available late 2019

THIS issue of the magazine comes with a bonus DVD that completes our south-east Queensland trilogy on the beautiful beaches of North Stradbroke Island. It’s a spectacular location for four-wheel driving and one of the many places MSA 4x4 Accessories visits when developing and testing its range of products. On this DVD we featured some prototypes of the yet-to-be-released MSA Driving Mirrors and were very impressed with their style, ease of use and practicality. Testing of these mirrors is ongoing, with the team taking them out to the harsh environments of the outback, pounding them over the roughest corrugated roads and subjecting them to a wide variety of climates. Thousands of kilometres of punishing testing ensure that the products are the best they can be when they hit the market for purchase. That…

drive 4 life dates changed

THE 20th Anniversary of Aussie flick Priscilla: Queen of the Desert has forced Drive 4 Life organisers to shuffle the dates for the upcoming Flinders Ranges Tour. The movie, filmed in and around Broken Hill, wrapped up on September 14 and 15, 1999, and people will be flocking to the area to celebrate the 20th anniversary. For this reason, hotels and motels in the area can only be booked for a minimum of three nights, and Drive 4 Life’s dinner venue has also refused to accept the charity’s booking for 80 people. Drive 4 Life has rearranged the tour, which will now start on Sunday, September 1, and conclude on Sunday, September 8 – the first time in Drive 4 Life’s 14-year operating history where the dates have been altered. Drive 4 Life’s director,…
