    4wd Trucks in the Outback

    Alice Springs is just one of those places that it attracks folks from all over the globe. Some people rent expensive campers, cheap dodgy sprayed painted clapped out old vans and others bring their own. This pic was taken in the middle of town near Coles. This is a MAN offroad truck with a body on the back. A big V10 twin turbo cat engine and so much torque to pull a small town. Its good to see these type of vehicles, you just dont see them all the time. I have a few other pics of other vehicles, ill post them once I find them. Anyhow I this this is awesome enjoy.

    Sweden's flag has a blue background and a yellow cross. The one above looks like Switzerland to me.

    Hope you dont mind me adding my pics to this thread, but I saw something similar last year in Exmouth.
    Mobile Phone pics sorry

    Isuzu truck, with jet ski on top. It had a Hiab on back to lift the Jetski down.
    Heaps of fuel & water capacity, and the boat was as big as it looks.

    Some people set themselves up really nicely, and make sure they are comfortable on the road



    Cheers

    All good until the missus falls whilst climbing into/out of the van or cab and then it's "I ain't going in that rig again - EVER!"
