THERE’S no end to the type and number of accessories that enthusiasts fit to their 4x4 vehicles. From wheels and tyres, to suspension, barwork, storage, lights, electricals and all manner of gadgets, 4x4s must be some of the most accessorised cars on the planet. Many of us like the DIY aspect to fitting accessories and spending hours in the shed. Others choose to go the pay-to-play route and have their gear installed by a professional at the shop. Both methods have their pros and cons, but you’d like to think that having new kit fitted at the shop should be foolproof and reliable. This isn’t always the case as some of the biggest complaints we hear about aftermarket 4x4 accessories has to do with poor installation by workshops. This isn’t limited to…

open season

AFTER a late start, the Simpson Desert is open for the 2019 desert-touring season. Flood waters heading down the Diamantina from farther north in Queensland were blocking the road from Birdsville to Big Red, but they have now subsided and moved on down to Lake Eyre.

The most common way across the Simpson is via the French and QAA lines, which will take you between Mt Dare in…

electric 4x4s to the masses

A NEW venture called Jaunt is aiming to bring electric 4WDing to the masses through a unique “distributed manufacturing model” that will allow community groups around the country to purchase an electrified Land Rover Series vehicle and rent it out to customers. Currently in the crowdfunding stage, a $50 investment through Indiegogo aims to offer a 15-minute test drive with the Jaunt team on a special off-road circuit, while $1000 entitles the investor to a private test day with the Jaunt team. Planned rental agreements will be $200 for a day, $300 for two days, $1000 for a week and $5000 for a month. Three ‘Founders Edition’ Land Rover Series electric vehicles will also be offered for private sale at a cost of $60K, with expected delivery in 2020, while…
