Darren from Uncover Australia 4WD reckons he has built the ultimate touring vehicle with his ever dependable Toyota Hi-Lux.  He reckons that if ARB and REDARC were ever to have a child then his rig would be it.

Darren says that a lot of planning has gone into this build and before spending any money you need to ensure that you are going to use the gear.  Every extra kg you add will cost you every time at the bowser.
He goes on to say that there is no better feeling of pulling up for the night, unrolling your swag and enjoying some quiet contemplation around a fire with family and friends.
