this is a pic of my trusty steed 2000TJ - I drove this around Australia on the coast 17,000kms 2 and a bit weeks - ultimate insanity - my Jeep is and was awesome (or thats how I remember it!) - I remember driving it through the NT with the camper trailer in tow at nearly 200kph - that was before the implementation of speed limits :( - I drove it around the coast of OZ as part of an expedition survey - The result was 4 of my friends Jet skiing around OZ (a few Guiness book records were set also) to raise money for Cancer care - I see the documentary I made on National Geographic from time to time - great fun days!!!!!! - I can't get the expedition bug out of me - I would do it all again in a heart beat!
cheers Hunty

Hi scott
It was an awesome vehicle - I rigged up a flying doctor radio and sat phone, loaded 6 spare tyres 5 jerry cans of fuel and 4x20 litre water bottles!
I completely removed the interior and the roof - I drove it from sunrise to midnight, some days covering 1500 - 1800 km - I drove over 1000km in flooded WA with water lapping over the bonnet! - I hit an emu and completely folded over the front end! - I pulled out 2 nissan patrols and 1 old cruiser up in the gulf near burketown - they were to heavy to be able to get through the boggy sand! - lastly I got it tangled in the original telegraph wire running between SA and WA - all in all some of my best Jeep memories - cheers Hunty
