Geelong 4WD & Camping FAQ
I’m into the extreme end of 4WD, do you stock equipment for my vehicle?
At Geelong 4WD & Camping we have 4WD accessories for all levels of four-wheel driving, from soccer mums driving the so-called urban tractors, right through to mud bashers who require extreme 4X4 parts and accessories such as mud-terrain tyres.
I’m heading off around Australia. Will my standard suspension cope with the demands of the trip or do I need to upgrade my suspension and other offroad 4X4 accessories?
It’s always a good idea to have your vehicle checked out by an expert before heading off on extended trips into remote and rugged areas. We’d need to look at your vehicle but would suggest that you’d benefit from fitting Ironman 4WD accessories, which includes tough 4×4 suspension. With Ironman 4X4 accessories you have the benefit of off-road accessories designed specifically for Australia’s testing conditions.
Our family is new to four-wheel driving. What 4WD parts and accessories do we need to ensure our Toyota Landcruiser has everything it needs for our first big trip?
That question is a little bit like asking how long is a piece of string? There’s no right or wrong answer because every situation is different. There’s an amazing selection of Toyota 4WD accessories on the market but you probably won’t need to fit them all. It’d be best to talk to us and we’ll advise you of what you do and don’t need regarding the most appropriate 4×4 parts and accessories for your Toyota. And that’s the same for every make of vehicle. We’ll advise on what 4×4 accessories Toyota drivers need, Ford drivers need, Mazda drivers, Nissan, Ford – you get the picture. Get in touch and we’ll tell you what you require.
We don’t have a four-wheel drive but we’re thinking of tackling some of Australia’s Outback routes. Is this a good idea and are there 4WD car accessories that will ensure we don’t get stuck in the middle of nowhere?
No, that doesn’t sound like the greatest idea. If you’re driving on four-wheel drive tracks then you really should be in a four-wheel drive fitted with the appropriate 4×4 parts and accessories. There are off-road accessories you could describe loosely as 4×4 car accessories because they’ll fit a regular car, but we still wouldn’t recommend going bush in the family sedan.
What is the one overall 4WD accessory you’d recommend for off-road vehicles?
That’s a tough one because there’s no one-size-fits-all answer but we’d probably suggest good suspension is at the top of the list. There’s a great number of accessories 4WD enthusiasts can add to their vehicles and everyone has their own opinion about the best 4×4 accessory, but we’d put 4×4 suspension right up there.
Do you have an overall manufacturer you recommend for parts and accessories for 4X4 vehicle?
Ironman 4X4 accessories Australia. Full stop. Simple as that. The range of Ironman range has outstanding 4×4 accessories off road drivers can’t look past.
You no doubt have plenty of off-road 4X4 parts and accessories to increase the overall performance and strength of vehicles, but what about 4WD interior accessories?
We have interior accessories that can increase your comfort and others that, while they’re inside your vehicle, add to your overall travel experience, such as our radios and maps.
