4 x 4 Australia



THIS particular 200 Series had nearly 100,000km on the clock and was hiding this well. It looked and drove like new, and had a bit more gear on it compared to the 300 Series – more of a traditiona­l touring package.

Additional accessorie­s comprise Tough Dog suspension, lifted 40mm in the front and 20mm in the rear; a steel bullbar; a winch with synthetic rope; a set of Lightforce HTX 2 driving lights mounted on the bullbar; Mickey Thompson ATZ P3 all-terrain tyres for extra traction offroad; and a Safari snorkel for protection in dusty conditions and during water crossings.

It’s a great touring package, ticking many boxes for off-road use. Considerin­g the 200 Series has been around for so long, there isn’t much you can’t accessoris­e or modify to suit your needs. This is one area the 200 Series has an advantage over the 300 Series, but this will no doubt change in time as the aftermarke­t industry continues to develop new products to suit the new platform.
