There is a lot to be said about getting out on the wide open road and exploring this great country that we live in, and with restrictions across the country winding back and local borders opening, along with the weather getting warmer, there has never been a better time to prep your family 4WD for some of the best memories you and the crew will ever have!


The list of potential modifications are basically endless, but with some sensible planning and clever budgeting you can set up your vehicle for happy 4WD escape, with all the bells and whistles without blowing the budget, and avoiding trackside headaches.


Before we go anywhere or even spend a cent, we need to take stock of what your vehicle has already fitted and what might need upgrading. This includes everything from factory options to any aftermarket accessories the previous owner might have bolted on,

Starting from the bottom up, you should consider what shoes your vehicle is wearing, the best type of tyre if you are planning on hitting a wide variety of terrain is a an all purpose “all terrain” style tyre, offering prolonged wear, and a heavy duty side wall, along with a deep tyre tread pattern these will give your 4WD an advantage when you get off the beaten path, however many 4WD’s have ‘AT’ tyres fitted from factory, if you are lucky and have some fitted already this is one place you can save a bit of coin on your next “post lockdown” trip away.

 

Moving up, you will want to look at fitting a set of side steps/rock sliders and a bulbar to your 4WD this will protect your vehicles door trim as well as the front of your vehicle from frontal collision in the case of accidental animal strike. The addition of a bulbar also gives you plenty of mounting options for your required 4WD accessories.

Depending on your requirements, the bare minimum accessory is a set of powerful LED Driving Lights or a bright LED Light bar which will hopefully help you with seeing as far down the track as is possible to prevent any of the Aforementioned accidental animal strikes. A bull bar also offers you with an ideal way to mount a Winch to pull you out of trouble, as well as a UHF antenna, which is perfect for areas where you are well out of mobile phone reception as UHF vehicle mounted 2 way radio doesn’t need towers to communicate, and can reach an incredible line of sight distance of up to around 25km in the perfect weather conditions.

Moving up your vehicle, depending on whether or not you have a ute or a wagon is a set of Titan Rear Drawers, built incredibly tough, and available in many sizes and configurations a set of rear drawers is the perfect addition to any vehicle to keep all your tools and camping gear organised, and just where you need it when you need it.

Navigation is an essential part of exploring new territory, and when you look back in time, the thing that has been a pinnacle identifier of most notable explorers is their ability to map accurately and easily exactly where they have been and where they are going, this is where the VMS in car GPS navigator revolutionized offroad travel with both dirt maps and road maps of the whole of Australia, boasting over 1000+ free campsites, the easy to read 7” backlit touch screen makes this device an absolute no brainer when it comes to setting up your rig for true blue offroad navigations.

 

Elevating our attention, you can look at one of the best storage expansion options you have, up on the roof, depending on your 4WD you might have factory rails or even roof racks optioned in. But our must have accessory, is an Adventure Kings Roof Rack, with either the super strong steel variety or the latest release lightweight modular Kings Aluminium rack, there is essentially something for everyone’s vehicle and whilst a standard roof rack might seem like something your vehicle doesn’t need, it could very well change the way you catch zzz’s on the tracks. offering the perfect position to mount up a roof top tent for one of Australia’s most premium camping experiences, as well as a great position to mount up an Awning for shelter anywhere you pull up the handbrake.


The Adventure Kings range includes three separate options of roof top tent boasting an option for everyone’s budget, starting with the essential Roof Top Tent Tourer, a fold out design typical of most aussie campsites, the Kwiky Roof Top Tent, a faster and easier to set up option for campers who love to hit the highway, and finally the crème-de-la-crème the Adventure Kings Roof Top Tent Grand Tourer offering some of Australia’s most premium roof top tent features for a bargain price.

with all of these incredibly affordable modifications to your family 4WD, you will be able to hit the tracks with confidence and piece of mind, knowing you have a setup to rival the best of them, without blowing the beer budget or keeping the dreams of hitting the tracks for some other “later date”.
