After doing all the mild circuits sooner or later you will hit the great Australian outback. For this tough trail, you need vehicle accessories that will withstand the great Australian outback without letting you stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Before you plan your great outing, you need to take a closer look at your vehicle – is it tough enough to take on the tough Australian outback?
One of first things you need to understand is that a new vehicle, even if classified as a 4×4, is essentially fine tuned for city driving – because that’s where we do 90% of our driving. Your 4×4 might look tough but believe us, it really isn’t ready to take on the great Australian outback – not without modifications and some vehicle accessories for the off road journey.
One of the first things you need to look at is the vehicle suspension – a factory fitted vehicle comes with a standard suspension that is customised for city driving on nice smooth roads. The moment you add weight and drive your vehicle off road, the suspension will break down and it will break quickly.
So, you need to change your suspension which is not as tough as it sounds. There are specific after-market suspensions kits for each type of vehicle. These kits are specifically designed for carrying weight as well as take on the ultra tough terrain. These tough suspension systems also provide additional ground clearance for your vehicle so also remember to add a retractable foot step to the vehicle if required. Visit your nearest 4X4 Accessories Sydney store for a full range of options in vehicle suspension.
Water proof your engine:
Have your engine looked at by an expert to make sure it is 100% water proof and that it will not stall the moment a little water enters the engine compartment. This can happen when you cross rivers and streams.
Your vehicle is going to pitch and you as it goes over ditches, rivers, boulders, stumps and everything else out there. Anything that is not securely tied down is going to tumble. Visit Bars-n-racks for luggage options that are especially designed for off road journey. These will include Car Roof Racks Sydney, drawers and cargo barriers. Remember to leave space for the filled garbage bags.

Tents, backup power supply, fuel, field cooking gear, pots and pans, outdoor toilet kits, folding tables and chairs, garbage bags, refrigeration, camp lighting including flash lights.
