Most scary situation in the Volkswagen Amarok V6:
First couple months of owning the
Amarok the misses and I decided to head up to Willie Creek Pearl Farm just
We had been fishing all day and
afternoon and at 2am we decided to pull the boat in at a makeshift boat ramp in
a 10m High Tidal area through a gap in the mangroves.
Not after long I had the Amarok Bogged
to its eyeballs with the boat trailer on the back, I’d like to note that we had
seen crocs bigger than my 5 m boat in the water only 2 hours prior.
To set the situation we were knee
deep in crock infested water trying to get the boat on the trailer also digging
the car and trailer out of the mud. We managed to get out by burying the max tracks
in the mud and put the foot to the floor, we just manage to crawl out of the
bog hole just moments before the water came in, which if you haven’t been up to
the top end of WA before, the water comes in like a sideways water fall and
lucky we did managed to get out in time because the water was about as high as
the roof of our car was only 20 min later and a further 2 meter under water an
Joey’s modification tips:
If you’re modifying an Amarok, get
onto the ModRok -Modified Amarok Facebook Group and learn from others’ mistakes
and Be very patient because with all new versions of 4X4’s there aren’t a lot
of accessories available for them yet, and the ones that are around are pricey
Things to lookout for with this model Volkswagen Amarok V6:
sensors are really sensitive, and everything needs to be bang on or lights will
go off all over the dash
and end your trip fast.
