Dan's 4x4 Extreme Interview

Cross Country 4x4The competition scene these days is ultra competitive, and if you want to be near the top, you need a very well built truck! But when it comes to the racing-style competition, like the outback challenge, horsepower is the key to winning these competitions. Dan Hansen is only new to the competition scene but is already making a big impression.

He bought this GU Ute off the showroom floor back in 2005 with only one thing in mind: to turn it into the ultimate racing truck. The GU has been a favourite in the competition scene for a while now, thanks to their bulletproof driveline and the ease with which they can be modified. While Dan may be new to the competition scene, he definitely isn’t new top 4WDing, already owning a fully decked out 100 Series, which gets the family touring duties and another GU ute with 35s that is used for his bricklaying  job.

Love ’em or hate ’em, Toyota makes bloody good 4WD’s and there’s no denying it. Even the most one-eyed Nissan fan has to admit that the 79 Series is an absolute pearler – that 1HD-FTE booster oiler is easily one of the sweetest engines ever to make its way under a 4WD. South Oz-based mechanic and owner of Cross Country 4x4 Grant Kean is one bloke who needs no convincing. In the past he’s owned a 75 Series diesel and a tough old diesel 80 Series that was featured in a previous issue of our sister publication Australian 4WD Action.
