    Much love from North Eastern America!! Stumbled upon your video and it’s awesome; I’m only 10 mins in! I need to go check this out. I’d imagine you can rent trucks there but anywhere/thing special to go and get one? Should I even mention going to Fraser Island?

    Is it me or actually the Aussies speak proper English out of all the English countries in the world...just noticed the guy said "fewer people" at 16.45...I've been hearing people say "less people" more and more these days in North America, where schools don't teach any (basic) grammar so it's Wild West when it comes to speaking properly; you're supposed to say "fewer people" because you can count people.... Besides that, I wish in Canada we got some of the best Japanese off-roaders that Australians get like that Isuzu D-Max and Toyota 70-series....ahhhh, sigh :(

    That's not a cheap truck challenge. That's two high bucks 4x4s and a beater. Pick on the young guy that's what I see here.

    Should keep the "Navdog" and do a series about restoring it to reliable 4x4 operation, make it another "4WD Action staple" vehicle.

    Stayed at Sandy Cape last week and it's sad to say that first campsite has almost been covered by the sand dune. It's advanced by about 20 metres since this episode was filmed and there's only enough room for one 4wd and camp setup now. It's still an awesome place though.

    I'm suspicious of this channel. They upload content but they don't engage with the commenters. They may cite time but if you have a YT channel then you should engage with those who take the trouble to comment. In other words make time.

    OMG i have been going to Fraser for like? (well i'm 55 and i was 15!!!) Bloody 40 years.... It is a testament the beauty!!! Ms. Fraser Island that she still poses the same challenge's as she has always held me to the upmost respect... yes! firstly its always been about the tides, no matter what. secondly it's always been about the tyre pressures and momentum, but if you can be patient and wait for all the yobo's who haven't figured out yet. you'll bloody make it and have a cracking good time. Thanks guys for enlighting me of my journeys a past. I agree the west is best... Except the midgee's are brutal. but it's totally worth it... Cheers, Ex-Pat living in the USA these days... totally missing my old backyard... but living vicariously through you blokes... love you Channel!!!

    Finally.. What this shows is that you dont need a fully kitted offroad monster with bumpers, lifts, tyres and accessories that cost the GDP of a small country to go offroad. Naturally theres exceptions ... but we're gonna accessorise anyway... Shit.. 🤔We've turned into women(if youre a guy) and we're basically applying makeup!!!😆
