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… is this a Ute or a Truck? I’ll call it a truck.

Sorry, Does NOT work on mobile phone.
This flatbed truck is long and wide but
doesn’t stop Josh from taking it to all the same places and ‘regular’ ute/truck
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
