Default Greetings from down under!

I have been visiting here for ages, thought it best to become a member! Have a 2012 Rubicon two door, 4"lift, high profile mud tyres, winch, and most front end replaced with truck parts after me bending the originals.

Welcome, besides tyres- and a windscreen... Jeeps over there wear a bonnet too?
You should share some pics of your trails over there we would love to see the trails you run down under!

Default Thank you for your welcome 🙂

I do use the rag top at times, or just go topless..
I had some great pics in deep mudpits but my phone destroyed my SD card sadly...



Flinders Ranges. Sharp flintstone tracks that shred tyres

The Birdsville Track

The famous sand dune, Big Red near Birdsville

It rains in the desert at times

Testing the articulation...

Nice, the pics showing many miles (or kilometers in your case) from nowhere are my cup of tea! Thanks...

Mud 🐖🐖🐖

Many miles of beach to play on
The Birdsville Track is 320 "miles long but is a three day drive just to get there from the coast..
You have some amazing drives there too! I see a few YouTube videos of Jeeps there doing some brilliant tracks! What a great hobby we have to get to see amazing places and have a ball getting there! 😊

Howdy, from Texas!

Good looking Jeep, and I'm a little jealous of your adventures already.

In south Texas I have to travel pretty far to get to the good spots.

I used to watch a bunch of videos by Go4x4. They are out of Queensland, but I don't think they post too much anymore.

Visited the Brisbane area back in 2010. Beautiful area.

Anyway, welcome, and happy Jeeping!

@tjcarp, there are some great tracks along the coast, Fraser Island is excellent, deep dead sand and long beaches. If you get the tide wrong, your truck gets a bath in the ocean! Thanks for the welcome guys! 😊

You have the great beach drive, 380 km of beach you can 4x4 along... We hire light planes at times and fly along it to Fraser Island...

380 km of beach to drive along
