There’s no doubting that North Queensland is a 4WD paradise, from the tough as nails 4WD tracks to the stunning campsites that the top half of the state is blessed with. Townsville’s no different – it’s the kind of place where you want to run your tyres at 18psi permanently, because there’s low-range adventure just about everywhere you look! Join Graham and Jamie this issue as they delve into the best bits that Townsville has to offer: sandy creek beds that threaten to swallow trucks whole, wheel-lifting climbs that almost put both boys on their lids, and the kind of campsites that remind you why you own a 4WD. This is what off-roading’s all about! It wouldn’t be a 4WD Action DVD without a selection of tough home-built custom 4WDs, and this time around we’ve got three pearlers! First up is what we’d have to rate as one of the neatest GQs we’ve ever seen getting around the tracks, all set up for touring. Then we speak with the owner of a you-beaut BT-50 that’ll change your thoughts on the tradie’s trucks forever. Finally, we catch up with a bloke who’s built a seriously tough styleside chopped 80 Series ute – the ’Cruiser that Toyota should have built! Roothy’s back this issue to whip up another recipe too – he’s calling it ‘Veggie Surprise’, but we reckon the surprise comes from the fact that most vegetarians would fi nd the contents surprising! Geez, you wouldn’t expect anything else, would you? All this and bucketloads more on 4WD Action TV – the only show that understands you need bacon in everything.
