Awesome Aussie All Round Off-Road Racing Rig

by AJ Deysel

Today we have this AWESOME little rig, all the way from over the pond in Australia. Being advertised on Facebook. This rig has been built tough and ready to company in a multitude of off-road events, from mud racing and bogging, through to off-road challenge events, and has so far had a podium finish in every event it has entered. A somewhat bastardized mix of Nissan Patrol and Toyota Hilux, it’s purpose built and looks good while doing it.
