Yep, sure am. We own a standard Holden Frontera, don`t mind the rough roads to get to the camp spot (we often look for the rough road :P ). We do a bit of 4x4 whilst we are out and about in the bush. The best way to find a good camp spot is to take the crappy old road no one else dares to take. Doing some driving around the Tumut area this week :D

Frontera's have IFS front but no reason why they cant tackle the harder stuff. I had a Pajero follow me through Appin but thats another story. I say good stuff if u keen and yes i also like a challenge to tow my camper behind the Maverick on the more difficult tracks, like through the Barrington Tops National Park.

Hi Ozzy,

I dont mind doing a bit of off road when I go away. I am not so much into the extreme (lets see how much damage we can do) but more for touring purposes. I have a 2003 3.0TD SR5 Hilux which has been kitted out by ARB Southside here in Brisbane.
We are hoping to go to the Cape this year so I am looking forward to that.
One of my favourites sites is Levuka 4x4 retreat, not so much for the offroad stuff (although there is a lot there) but more for the beautiful scenery and old growth forests.

Cheers

Please sir, Can I have some more? Time off that is.

We go 4x4'ing to fishing spots north of Perth. It's very sandy and teh dunes need a fourby.

I don't have one but go with my mates ... we use a Cherokee Larado or a Nissan Patrol. Both handle the sand well.

Having been in a lot of fourbies over the years I honestly believe there isnt much difference between them ... just minor stuff that the owner needs to figure out what is best for him/her.

Cheers ...
