This is a major DIY build with some excellent mods by Steve himself. Loads of inspiration and ideas will come from this truck. This truly is a very unique build & vehicle, not just because it’s 6x6 but more so due to the camping & living mods done to this ex-army truck.

AFTER DOING A LOT OF CENTRAL AUSTRALIA, TRAVELLING IN A NISSAN PATROL AND A ROOF TOP TENT, I WANTED MORE ROOM AND GREATER REALIABILITY. HAVING EVERTHING IN ONE VEHICLE IS CONVENIENT.

DESERT
