Sheesh. Can you imagine seeing this coming down the trail?

Found this today. Unbelievable, really.

YouTube - ‪GALL BOYS AUSTRALIA - FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND ADVENTURE - 4X4 OFF ROAD 4WD‬‏

Happy viewing.

I w2as wondering where their winch was and than appears the other truck. Neat exhaust modification, nice soft tires and real clearance.

We were on one of our dirt road treks during a particularly rainy year in AZ. The road came down to the river and appeared to stop. Then on the other side appeared another tow vehicle and he plunged across and stopped and chatted. He told us the road was open and we'd have to cross the river 7-8 times. We did. What a blast. The most dangerous moment was when we got to the end. There was one of those U shaped washes the width of the Honda's wheel base, on the other side a paved road. We took one look at the wash and desided to invoke the 4 wheel drive. Started down, gunned it a little to get some slippage and engage the 4 wheel drive and powered thru thankfully. It turned out to be 100 miles of dirt road and river. Just the best and why I love that part of our country.

I showed my wife the video and she said why... I said it's a guiy thing.

Thank you for sharing. Tonight I'll dream Austrailia.

Norm

I've been trying to replace my 2002 Isuzu Trooper with a newer model. That Toyota has all the features I'm looking for but isn't available in the US market. The 60/40 split back doors are so convenient that I don't want to give them up...
I drag my Trillium to the beaches in Cabo San Lucas each January, and while not as treacherous as the Gall Boys video, the interior looks like a bad garage sale after a bumpy go...

I've driven on a dirt track in Oz -- great fun! Just remember to pull LEFT when encountering another vehicle!

Sheesh, can you imagine....

a fiberglass egg manufacturer building 13 to 17 foot eggs equipped for the offroad market? Heavy duty frame, higher suspension, skid plates, 30" tires

Like the expedition equipped 4X4s, we may have to wait for the off-shore manufacturers to build something for American backroads .

Shhhhh Gord -- you'll put ideas in Sam's head! He's parting ways with his old Jeep soon, and experience tells me he will be looking for an outlet to express his "off-roading gene" before long.

Still... hmmm ... those mods might let us park the Boler in our tiny sloped side yard without having to pave it (or remove surrounding trees and rocks, for that matter)

I can hardly wait for the two year warranty to expire on my 17 foot Escape. That much welding might annoy Reace until then.

If those boys in Aus had true 'mud' tires on the 4X4 and better approach/departure angles on the TT, there's very little places they could not go!
I've seen videos of off-roading in South America that make that locale in Aus look positively tame!
