G'day, i was introduced into into 4wding when i bought an old LJ50 Suzuki buzz box. Great vehicle took me everywhere and got me back in most cases :)
I've owned a GU Patrol that was capable and a brand new 120 series Prado that was very good and miserly (3.0ltr).
However the capability of the current vehicle is outstanding.
It's a 2009 auto 3.8ltr JK 4dr Jeep (and its red).
Just this last easter i went out to Julimar forrest for some fun with a few other cars, i was impressed that my bog stock Jeep kept up with a lifted Colorado and a modified JK.
Its not changed much from Factory, LED headlights and a row of HID spotties across the top (pics only show 2 but it has 4 now).
Needs a transmission cooler as i found a trip to Yeagerup dunes warmed up the tranny oil really quickly (im interested to see what Brian did to his).
Best part of my car..... Taking the roof off on a glorious Perth day and cruising around (note to others, dont't road trip to Lancelin with a mrs like this..... trust me).
If ya see me around say Gday, i might drive a Jeep but im impressed with anyone who gets out and has a go, no matter what you drive.
Cheers and cold beers
