Nice, you "down under types" sure do like your off road beaching ! The California based OVERLAND BOUND guy did a couple videos of doing just that on a business trip to Aussieville about (?) a month ago - overlandbound.com - !
If I hadn't checked the tiny print in your location I'd never have a clue where/what Noosa North shore was ? Good stuff . . . got any around the campfire with the G.C. (in pause mode!) ha ha.

again thanks.

Are others enjoying this approach to off roading as much as I am ?
Still hoping to see a bit more OFF road stuff - Woodsy, Watery, deserty, and of course what "she or he" (we all know you've named your jeep, ha ha) looks like at trails end (hopefully a campsite !) before you hose "IT" off !

Good to know . . . probably buried info in the e-manual somewhere, !

Nicely balanced shot . . . is that an old WWII wreck or newer lost at sea beach grave ? Sad to see and a reminder to all to be safe out there !

Mostly Downunder (Australia) related. I still can't work out what you yanks mean when you 'mall crawl'. Is it like a 'pub crawl'?
Ah, I don't know wether to believe you or not . . . that is so funny to me !
IT refers, and sometimes not in a humorous way, to ANYone - not just women - who spends more time in their off road worthy JEEPS, in & around shopping mall parking lots ! Doing the craziest thing . . . SHOPPING ! GO FIGURE EH ?

WHAT'S a fella ta do ? Ive only gots one vehicle it's gonna be multi-tasked ta hell-n-back, eh ? OH, and yea, they do have the habit of "crawling" or "creeping" about the Mall Parking lots looking for the absolutely closest to the entrance they seek, and if it means waiting (and blocking traffic) in the road while somebody attempts a damage free backing out of the "spot," so be it ! Here in "the land of the free" (ugh) it's Every man for himself, or so it is sometimes (or woman) !
AH but we love it (or hate it) take your pick lad ! Hope that sheds some light for ya . . . wheeeee, hee hee . . . :thumbs:

ps; I could spend a week going thru all those thread entries WOW ! You folks sure do enjoy your Sand Mode. Aren't there any mountains in Aussieville ? (tongue deeply planted in cheek mode !) Pics Please !

Here's some vids too

Now that 2nd video is just what the doctor ordered ! Perfect Family & Friends with Jeepy Action too. Only wish it was in at least 720 HD ? Watching the G.C. hanging there on 3 wheels - ouch! - gotta be putting at least a bit of stress on the frame, no ?
IS that YOU at the Falls (glasses on) doing the selfie pan-vision ? It's ok I won't tell anyone ! :thumbs:

edit;ps; No power to the caravan . . . HA, yea, so what is that - an excuse to justify bringing "home" along to the campsite . . . ya call that CAMPING ? ? ? SERIOUSLY THOUGH, just kidding mate, great photo (though a bit blurry).

Well yea, go figure with getting that muddy ! ! I feel like I know you cause I watch just about all your videos. Not enough talking in them, should be more, oh I don't know . . . real ? Not a complaint, just my own personal wish for !
Thanks for sharing, again . . . :thumbs:
ps; I'm "only" 6 foot, but I suspect I could just take my waders off after banging the boots on the rail . . then drive home in my underwear . . . just kidding . . . always bring dry spare pants !

I replaced it because I found myself wanting when I drove it - the 5 speed tranny was sh*t, I wanted a leather interior and I wanted the 8.4AN sound system. Got a good deal on the '14 through the group buy and bought it. Kept the '14 for 3 years, it took 2 feet of snow and having the front end buried in a 6 foot snow drift like a champ. Traded it with 54,000 miles on it for the 2016 because I liked the 75th and got another deal through the group buy. ORA-II on the 75th comes with the 18" rims, I assume they're the same ones on the Laredo, I don't know - I never looked at the Laredo 75th.
Well Enjoy using that 75th -full potential ? - and I think it fair to say we'd like to see more Pics out in the woods having some fun !
