Jase’s truck is fitted by
EFS 4WD Suspension
▸ Xtreme shocks
▸ Heavy-duty coils
For the places that we go, aftermarket suspension is a must. We have trusted EFS for years because of their strength, reliability and quality. Every year when we build our rigs, EFS have the expertise to recommend and install exactly what lift we need with the shockies, springs and integrated suspension systems required to handle the load in the places that we go.
▸ Pioneer platform
▸ Sunseeker 2.5m awning
▸ Batwing awning
▸ Shovel bracket and short-handle shovel
For the last 4 years, we have been using Rhino Rack Pioneer roof racks for their strength in rooftop storage. These guys are a family-owned company that have been around now for 25 years. They have a huge range of attachments and accessories, such as the Batwing and Sunseeker awnings that we use and the rack-mounted shovels help get us out of the bogs we get ourselves into.
▸ Towing mirrorsWords from Jase
There’s no way I’d feel safe towing the loads that we tow without my Clearviews. The top mirror is a flat surface with a large face for accurate reflection and distance perspective, and the lower mirror is convex to give a wider view for towing and highway driving. With the 7.2-metre big boat, the Clearview Mirrors are essential for towing.
▸ 6 x Baja MTZ P3 Mud-Terrain 315/70R17Words from Jase
Tyre choice is so important, particularly when you travel into the places that we go. Every step of the way we were counting on on our Mickeys to get us through, and they never let us down. We were using MTZ P3 tyres on all our trucks and trailers, and I can tell you, they are one tough tyre. That is absolutely why we’re Mates of Mickey.
▸ 1 x CoolMatic CRX110 upright fridge/freezer
▸ In-cab CFX35W fridge/freezer
This year I have the Waeco CRX110 upright fridge/freezer in the canopy. This has enabled us to carry more food on the adventures where we venture further from the supermarkets than ever before. They are easy to power and are truly reliable.
▸ The Manager30 battery management system
▸ Tow-Pro brake controller
▸ 2000W AC/DC inverter
▸ 150W Rooftop solar panel
▸ 190W Solar blanket
Words from Jase
When you spend a lot of time camping in the bush, where there is no 240 power to plug into, it’s nice to have a good 12volt system in place. Redarc have a great range of products that handle all our 12 volts needs.
▸ Dual-cab conversion with 650mm chassis extension
▸ Fitting of accessories and other components
▸ 2 sets per vehicle
Words from Jase
We would still be stuck in some of the wettest bogs if it hadn’t been for our MAXTRAX. These lightweight vehicle-recovery devices are easy to carry along and are invaluable to have when you get into a sticky situation.
▸ UH9080 UHF radio
▸ AT970BK Antenna
Words from Jase
For Series 10, we’re using Uniden for our communications with their in-car and handheld UHFs. These systems are vital for the places that we go. When off the beaten track and during recovery situations, good communication is vital. The Uniden systems impressed me with their clarity and range, two of the most important elements to consider when buying a UHF.
