    Hi Glenn,

    I’ve had a bit of a look at your vehicle. Unfortunately, I’m no expert when it comes to these things. I can see you’ve changed the exhaust, and fitted an intercooler. Have you had the diesel pump looked at? Are they standard size tyres? I’d imagine you are carrying quite a bit of weight, and its not exactly aerodynamic. When do you need the torque; is it just at higher speeds?

    Beyond this, the only thing I can think of is fitting a different turbo, losing some weight and improving the aerodynamics. The engine is not hugely powerful though, and is probably just about at its limit without spending a reasonable amount of money

    Looking for some info on getting my Nissan Patrol TL-i exhaust done. 5.6 ltr v8

    Do you have off the shelf exhausts or are they custom built

  • Aaron Schubert November 26, 2015, 4:05 PM

    Hey Tom,

    We don’t sell any products. There should be off the shelf options though; have you contacted Beaudesert, or other aftermarket exhaust shops? Where are you located?

    Hi Aaron, I have checked some of your posts regarding youcamp.com. a few weeks ago they upgraded their site but a fair few of the previous camps have dropped off. I assume it takes some time to get the property owners to re upload their details, but I am very keen to head down to Wedge Tail Eagle Retreat this weekend, would you be able to send me a link to them.. or their email address. I have googled it and its a bit depressing… links to a Hospice care in NSW
    Cheers

    I am newly immigrated to Aus from Canadia and my wife and I dream of 4WD touring this incredible land. We are looking at a 1998 series 80 with 255K km. The oil is filthy black and log book says last changes were 242K and 211K. 31,000km between oil changes, even if synthetic, is a long time. is the engine stuffed?

  • Aaron at 4WDing Australia January 23, 2017, 7:25 AM

    Hi John,

    Is it the petrol motor or diesel? The service interval for a petrol is 10,000km and diesel is 5,000km. Is there a chance its been serviced in between and not recorded? If it is diesel, the oil goes filthy black after about 1500km anyway, due to carbon build up. How is the rest of the car? Is it priced well?

    I wouldn’t completely rule it out, but would definitely be careful with it. Best of luck.

  • Ryan February 19, 2017, 3:58 PM

    Hi Aaron ,

    Iv been going through your website and has some great info on it …. I am planning a 2 week 4wd camping trip with some of the boys should be 3 cars all up ……we are looking to go next month driving from Perth straight to Esperance and following the coast line right back up to Perth .

    I noticed you stayed in a lot of camp sites can you simply not just camp on the beaches or is this not allowed .?

    Also what kind of recommendations would you have for places to see in that time frame think we have 11 days to be exact.? rough plan is to hit Esperance and surrounding beaches straight up followed by Brema Bay , Albany , Denmark , Busso/ Marg River / Perth

    Any information or suggestions would be much appreciated .

    Cheers

    Ryan

  • Aaron at 4WDing Australia February 19, 2017, 4:39 PM

    Hey Ryan,

    Israelite Bay you can pretty much camp wherever you want. The rest though, are all designated national parks or caravan parks (duke of orleans). I guess you could camp on the beaches east of Esperance, but not sure if you’d get in trouble for it; maybe ring the Esperance ranger? I wouldn’t do it west of Esperance unless you had confirmation it was ok to do so.

    Are you doing anything east of Esperance, or heading straight back to Perth?

    We did 3 nights Israelite Bay, 3 at Thomas River, 3 at Duke of Orleans, 2 at Stokes National Park, 2 at Bremer Bay, 2 at Waychinicup and 4 at Parry Beach.

    In general, the closer you get to Perth the busier and more touristy it gets, so maximise your time on the southern coast. Bremer Bay, the Fitzgerald National Park, Walpole, Albany and both sides of Esperance are epic.

    Enjoy mate

    Hi Aaron, was just wondering how or who I can find out info on the condition of the Holland Track for Easter in 2 weeks time.

  • Aaron at 4WDing Australia April 2, 2017, 11:08 PM

    Hey Debbie,

    The Land Cruiser Club of WA manages the maintenance of the Holland Track with Track care and the DPAW. You could contact them – http://tlccwa.org.au/home/adopted-tracks/holland-track/

    Otherwise, have a search on Facebook – there were a few posts early on in March, but there’s been some rain since then. I’m sure if you ask on one of the pages someone will have done it recently. Come back if you can’t get any information and I’ll poke around

    Hi,
    Ive just bought a Discovery Spoert HSE 180, looking at taking it to Preston Beach South of Mandurah WA. Looking for some advice (tyre pressure etc) going on the beach or am I crazy to take a Discovery Sport on the beach?

  • Aaron Schubert February 19, 2018, 10:35 PM

    Hey Greig,

    The beaches vary a lot from week to week; if its in good condition (which it should be), I reckon you would have a fair crack at it. Having big rims makes it pretty hard to deflate properly, but I’d go down to 20 – 25 and see how you go. Go with someone else if possible, and make sure you have rated recovery points. Other than that, Maxtrax or Treds work very well.

    Sixteen years ago I made landfall in a small port called Townsville, Australia on a five day liberty and I have been infatuated with the place ever since. I have always wanted to return to the continent and put my Yankee 4×4 skills to the test in the rusted dirt of the Outback. Having grown up in the woods of very northern Maine I came up with a natural skill to overland years before I moved to the American southwest. My father was a forester who spent weeks at a time at work in the woods. Unlike many American off roaders, my brother and I learned at a young age things like two spare tires is actually one, and one spare tire is truly none. We learned to drive a “standard transmission” truck on dirt long before we could legally drive on the street. Mostly we learned that it could be a day or two until the next log truck comes by so “for Christ sake stay out of the loose gravel on the side of the road!”

    I have a dream and not in the vanity that T.E. Lawrence speaks of. My vision is of a global 4×4 event connected via the internet, HF HAM radio, and a love of overland trekking. For those with the open eyes of dangerous men contact me for more inspiration.

    Hey Alan,

    Nice to meet you. Sounds like you’ve had a lot of fun! A global 4WD event would be amazing

  • Bernie August 5, 2018, 7:22 AM

    I have a 1996 GQ 4.2 diesel that was very saggy when bought 2nd hand in 2000, so I had a more capable suspension fitted with all the necessary parts extended, even a longer drive shaft. In the end this raised the vehicle 5″ and I also fitted 33″ tyres to it. The vehicle sits perfectly on the road and is quite capable off road. All this work was done in late 2000 by an engineer, and I believed it to be legal on the road at the time.
    When did the regulations come into effect in Qld, and if it was after my mods were done do I need to have the vehicle inspected or reassessed? It has been through Roadworthy since the mods and passed so does this make it legal?
    Thanks

  • Aaron Schubert August 5, 2018, 3:01 PM

    Hi Bernie,

    Unless you got an engineer certificate with the suspension, your vehicle won’t be legal. If you did get a certificate, make sure it covers not only the big suspension lift, but the larger tyres too.

    I can’t see how it would pass a roadworthy without an engineers certificate.

    Without an engineers certificate (or some paperwork from the people who did the install) you’d have to get it re-engineered, and to be honest I think its probably too tall to touch.

  • ricky August 13, 2018, 10:56 AM

    Hi need some help. I called around many places but no one can help. I need a sort of undercover protection or at least protecting the auto trans and main oil sumps for my Hyundai Getz. I do so frequent offroad driving and just want that extra protection. I am not doing 4X4 off road driving just the seldom dust road driving. The car is very economical and comfortable to drive I just want that that extra peace of mind when not driving on the tar roads. I am in the Melbourne area but open to suggestions nation wide.
    Thanks

  • Aaron Schubert August 13, 2018, 3:29 PM

    Hi Ricky,

    You’ll have to get something custom made mate. Any fabrication/sheet metal shop would be able to help you out

  • Bruce November 17, 2018, 2:17 PM

    Hello
    I recently bought a D-MAX and am looking at Toyo Open Country AT2 tyres but in 245/75R16’s. 1.. are you still happy with the Toyo’s and 2..the bigger size you got or wish you had bought a smaller size?

    Also any reason you didn’t consider the BushSkinz Aluminium underbody protection? I know they are dearer than the the steel ones but at 15kg, considerable lighter.

    Thankyou. Bruce

  • Aaron Schubert November 17, 2018, 6:26 PM

    Hey Bruce,

    Happy with the tyres overall, but they did wear quite a lot over our trip up north. I prefer the bigger size as it gives a fair bit more clearance, but it does come at a cost of more fuel consumption and less power, and I feel the vehicle works harder towing too.

    When I got the bushskinz bash plates they didn’t have an ally option. I would have considered it for sure. Just remember if you do get hung up on aluminium it will stick to the rocks, or gall much more than steel would. I’d probably still go ally though

  • Joerg and Marlis December 22, 2018, 6:59 PM

    Hello together

    My wife and I want to travel West-Australia, beginning in Perth. We bought a Car wich came from Sydney (didnt knew while buying) and now we have to do the car inspection. We allready tryed to pass it; but the xrox bull bar is now too high, cause the car is liftet (Toyota Landcruiser Prado 1999). They say there are too sharp edges under it and also the tyres aren’t covered enough. Does someone has expirience how to fix? I thinked to pull some foam over the sharp edges and mount mud flaps in front of the wheels. May this be enough? We will be in Perth from Dezember 25th and the next inspection is at January 7th.
    Thanks a lot for answer!! Joerg and Marlis

  • Aaron Schubert December 22, 2018, 8:15 PM

    Hey Joerg and Marlis,

    Any distributor who sells the Xrox bars should be able to supply you with little in fill panels that can be bolted on. The reason it isn’t legal is because too much of the tyre is exposed at the front.

    Best of luck

    Hi reading your article on catch can also looking at fuel water filters what do you think of water watch 2018 ranger 3000 kms round Australia trip thanks Leon

  • Aaron Schubert February 6, 2019, 5:21 PM

    Hi Leon,

    Anything that stops water and detects it is a good thing. I would ring Western Filters or Mann and Hummel and have a chat about your specific requirements.

    Best of luck

  • Peter Christensen February 14, 2019, 1:35 AM

    Hi Aaron,

    I saw you mentioned the distance from Karinjini to Millstream (250km) but how long approximately is the drive time? I understand road conditions, weather, traffic all play a part but we are trying to determine how much we can fit in that day and how much is just driving. I tried to leave this comment on that page but don’t think it went through, sorry if it doubles up.

    Thanks,
    Peter

  • Aaron Schubert February 14, 2019, 4:30 PM

    Hey Peter,

    We left Karijini, and went to Tom Price, did Mount Nameless 4WD track, then Millstream for lunch and arrived at Cleaverville (near Karratha) in the late afternoon. I can’t give you much more than that, as it will vary a lot depending on what you’ve mentioned. We took the mine road (do the online test)

    Safe travels mate

  • Jeff February 19, 2019, 5:06 PM

    Thanks for all the info you’ve posted! Its been a big help as I am planning a month long trip with my gf in June-July coming from the States. We are big on beaches and forests and plan to spend 2 nights in the Margaret River and Pemberton areas (1 night each) before making the grand journey north to Darwin. We really would like to get off the beaten path but not get in trouble with our rental company which we are getting a 4WD Toyota Hilux from. Any tracks you can recommend that shouldn’t give us issues? Hopefully you can post this for any other adventurous tourists to refer to!

  • Aaron Schubert February 19, 2019, 6:38 PM

    Hi Jeff,

    I’d be finding out where you are allowed to go, as a first step. There’s lots of places you can explore that are not too far off the beaten track but that have a lot less tourists. Look at places like Warroora station, Francois Peron National Park, Karijini, Cleaverville, Yardie Creek, Exmouth Gulf at Wapet Creek, Barn hill. You should be able to do the Gibb River Road (after May – when it opens), Litchfield and Kakadu.

    Set your own pace, but often its better to see more of less, than a little of lots.

    Have a great trip
    Aaron
