4x4 Chevrolet Silverado review.

We have our first Chevrolet Silverado on the show and it’s a big one! Josh is a farmer and his work horse is also his Australia tourer or is it an American tourer? I have one more question… it’s this a Ute or a Truck? I’ll call it a truck.

This flatbed truck is long and wide but doesn’t stop Josh from taking it to all the same places and ‘regular’ ute/truck will go.

Josh is also far from worried about scratching the Chevrolet Silverado as it’s just part of 4 wheeling life really, especially when the truck is so big.

For all the cool and juicy mods check out the video!

1.    High country in Victoria with snow

2.    Crossing Nullarbor traveling through NSW and winning 4x4 at Deni ute muster

3.    WA trips from Bremer bay up to 80 mile beach. Best probably local at Lancelin/ sharks bay


Unstoppable moment in the vehicle:

Doesn’t get bogged unless you’re trying to get bury it


Most scary situation in the Chevy:

Waves coming up the side of ute in wedge when track was washed out and tyres haven’t been let down yet


Josh’s modification tips:

Fit it out to suit you and what you do, as in it’s my work ute as well as I can take it anywhere


Things to lookout for with this model Chevy:

Too wide and long to take to the well-known mud 4wd tracks


Top tip with the Chevy:

1.  A lot of money wasted. but I see it as you only live once so go out and enjoy it
