The 4WD Shed Newsletter - July 2020

Date Posted:1 July 2020 

Winter is here
Our last long weekend until Melbourne Cup has been & gone here in Victoria. We took the opportunity to go away for 3 days & revist more of Mt Cole & Enfield State Forest areas. The dirt bikes even got pulled out of the naughty corner for a dust off!
We visited some great little huts & found some historic sites out there as well as took in the views from Mt Cole scenic lookout. We definitely are lucky in Australia to have access to so much nature surrounding us.
We have been extremely busy in both the workshop the past month, finishing off more Superior Outback kits, general servicing, suspension upgrades & much more. Winch installs were extremely popular as well as tyre & wheel packages with everyone prepping for winter, we installed 4 Runva winches in 2 days & 5 sets of Maxxis Razrs in 3! Dont forget we do ship Auswide & can even help you with tyres all around Australia. We can freight or organise collection at a local point to you.
Looking forward, Victoria still has COVID-19 restrictions, we still are offering contactless points & social distancing where required. Please let us know of any needs you may have before booking & take advantage of our hand sanitiser if visiting. As always please if you are unwell please contact us to rebook.
Good news was also announced as sporting events are set to resume & we have winch challenge racing returning. Wild Dog Winch Challenge is set to race within a few weeks & though we wont be racing this event we will be sure to go along & check it out if restrictions allow. Head to the Wild Dog Winch Challenge Facebook page to stay up to date with news as it becomes available.
We are aiming to take the new build to Outback Challenge in September so we will spend the time before then to finish the GU Patrol in order to compete there. The organisers have also created a spectator tourer package for those thinking about heading to outback NSW to watch teams compete. Find the details on facebook by joining the Outback Challenge page.
We will also be helping out at the upcoming SXS (side by side) event in July held at Traralgon. We had so much fun helping out last year we have signed up to do it all again.

Maxxis Razrs
Maxxis Razrs
The MAXXIS flagship mud terrain tyre, the RAZR MT was engineered with the know-how gained from Maxxis’ involvement in off-road racing.
The new pattern features deeply sculpted centre blocks for excellent mud traction, while stone and mud ejectors improve self-cleaning performance and minimise rock retention. An innovative armour sidewall design maximizes sidewall traction and puncture resistance, while deeply staggered shoulder blocks provide additional traction in difficult terrains. For ultimate peace of mind, the RAZR MT uses a dual-cord body-ply technology, ensuring additional casing strength for superior durability and toughness.
Features & Benefits
  • Innovative sidewall design maximises sidewall traction & puncture resistance
  • Advanced tread compound featuring new chemical fillers for maximum tear resistance & tread life
  • Dual-cord casing ply features intertwined reinforcement fibres which dramatically improves casing strength for superior durability & toughness

Franklins GQ Patrol Conversion

Franklins GQ Nissan Patrol
Franklins blue Nissan GQ Patrol was in for a visit not long ago.

We love these "grandpa spec"builds and Frankin has owned his GQ forever, loves the car, but the TB42 was thirsty and very underwhelming to to drive.

The solution was to add a 6ltr engine conversion and swap out the old RE4 with a 6l80e!

 Now this old gal has some serious poke to her, with fully operational tiptronic 6 speed auto, this thing just makes smiles per miles.

 We kept as much of the factory feel as we could & upgraded others to get the most out of the new additions. alot of custom piping & finished off with a new exhaust before adding some Koni 88 shocks for some added comfort.

 This is one of the nicest most drivable GQ's we have seen here at The 4WD Shed and when you plant your foot this thing smokes rubber!!

If you are thinking about getting a conversion done, feel free to email us at provide us a few details about your current car & what you would like to convert to & we can get you some information on options available.
