NZ4WD November 2014

Winter Woollies run
For the second time in a month NZ4WD’s Event Manager Ashley Lucas found himself heading to Waiouru – this time from the north – for some 4WDing. This time for the annual Winter Woollies run organised by the Desert Defenders Off-Road Club.

Modified Jeep Wrangler
In the second in his series on New Zealand’s toughest competition trucks Ashley checks out Nelson man Rowan Coutts’ V8-engined Jeep Wrangler winch challenge whip.

Spending the summer under canvas at the beach or river is a Kiwi right of passage. We look at what’s new in the world of getting away from it all.

Winch review
Every serious 4WDer needs a winch, be it a top-of-the-liner for serious competition or something simple to get you out of the odd tight spot. We check out the current state of the Kiwi market.
