This unique Jeep became known world wide due to this dedicated website on its build showing many of the modifications performed on this vehicle. It has also has appeared in magazines both here and in the USA. Years of research and development has gone into creating it. All well thought out to work in harmony with its intended purpose of touring Australia and being reliable doing so.

Adjustable front panhard bar fitted to centre axle after lift. Rear driveshaft has had a slip yoke eliminator so a longer driveshaft with a double cardan joint can be fitted to reduce the uni joint angles.
