4 x 4 Australia - - 4cast -

GET your copy of 4X4 Aus­tralia’s spe­cial edi­tion Sur­vival Guide. It’s chock-full of tips and tech­niques that’ll get you out of any off-road dilemma.

It fea­tures how-to guides on how to pre­pare your rig for a re­mote-area ad­ven­ture. It’s also got quick track­side fixes, bush cook­ing tech­niques, tips on how to stay alive when stranded, and in-depth anal­y­sis of off-road gear.

Plus there are a cou­ple of cus­tom rigs that’ll get your spine tin­gling.

The guide fea­tures a cus­tom GU Pa­trol that’s pack­ing a host of af­ter­mar­ket mods, none more im­pres­sive than its 6.5-litre GM V8 diesel donk. Also in­side is a 79-Se­ries Landcruiser tin­kered to perfection that you have to see to believe.

The Sur­vival Guide also cov­ers tried-and-true tech­niques to over­come ev­ery­day off-road ob­sta­cles; what to pack in a re­cov­ery kit; how to mas­ter the dan­ger­ous snatch-strap re­cov­ery tech­nique; the best way to safely and legally load your ve­hi­cle; and how to use a re­cov­ery board to get you out of a tricky sit­u­a­tion.

It also pro­vides an ed­u­ca­tion in bat­tery ba­sics, dual-bat­tery sys­tems, and how to re­build a busted live-axle front knuckle.

Plus there’s a mon­ster 12-volt com­pres­sor com­par­i­son. We tell you which one is best.

We also show you how to pre­pare and check the es­sen­tials be­fore a trip, and how to solve me­chan­i­cal and elec­tri­cal grem­lins.

If all else fails, we’ll tell you what to do as a last re­sort, and also the best way to sur­vive in the bush if you’re stranded.

Grab the Sur­vival Guide from newsagents and se­lect stores, or sub­scribe to 4X4 Aus­tralia in elec­tronic or print for­mat.
