Tricked-Out Ranger Tackles Tough Aussie Terrain: Video
4-Wheeling’s New Episode of Modified Gives Us a Closer Look at Modified Ford Ranger XLT Off-Roading in Oz
It’s no secret that Australians love off-roading. Our friends down under have one of the most rugged and beautiful chunks of land in the world to explore. Plus, there are some pretty darn interesting creatures running around. Aussies also love to modify their Ford Rangers to tackle local terrain.
In 4-Wheeling in Western Australia‘s new episode of its web series Modified, we get a closer look at a tricked-out Ranger XLT. But this is definitely no standard XLT. It has been outfitted with everything needed to traverse rivers and climb rocky hills. Unsurprisingly, it is also a 3.2 turbo diesel, which is the most popular engine choice in that part of the world.
The midsize 2014 Ford Ranger pickup has all the requisite bits for weekend excursions. On the outside, there’s an aftermarket bumper with a winch and lights. Also included is a snorkel for forging deep water. Plus, there’s rock sliders and a skid plate, roof rack, beefier Mickey Thompson tires and a two-inch lift.
Overall, this is another nicely done rig that is quite capable of tackling everything that Australia has to throw at it — except for maybe a herd of angry kangaroos.
