Hunty - well done - legend, but you weren't quite as lucky as an old (now) stock inspector I know who was working on the Barkly with the TB eradication program with cattle back in the 70's. He lived in a caravan on the station and one very wet wet he came across a couple of rather attractive working ladies heading to the Isa in a Kombi. They were bogged & couldn't move. Being the gentleman that he was he offered the van up for several days while the road dried out. The ladies were very very VERY grateful - at least that's what he tells me!

Cheers ... Mark

I think he's a legend just for proving that you really can go long distance touring in a 2-door soft top and put a roof-top tent on it to boot.

Hi jklad
Thanx for the kind comments - I love the soft tops I went twice round oz in my tj (and occasionally wished for a hard top) with the soft top.

Now I have a jk and a hard top I never use it - it just sits in storage - I won't sell it because you never know lol

As far as long distance touring goes - the 2dr jk is great - I have made up large drawers to replace the back seat and the roof top is very comfortable
Jax & I did just under 10,000 kms and are looking forward to the Sydney Jeep Club cape trip later this year
Cheers Hunty

We were at Stockton on the 2nd of Jan, it turned out to be a full blown recovery fest. Recovered a Jackaroo bogged to the axles with a trailer in tow, A Rodeo running at 28 PSI, A Prado, A Kia Sportage with a blown engine. The Jackaroo turned out to be a real challenge with the weight of the trailer and soft sand. Ended up using 2 Jeeps to pull it out. We were enjoying it but forgot to click any pics of the recoveries...
