Bens 2 Cents: Ever since I was tall enough to see out the windows in the old Landcruiser I have been dead keen on 4wding and everything related. That was just the ammo for my brother and I to create a business for us to design build and maintain countless incredible offroad and touring vehicles. I have the pleasure everyday to work with a great bunch of people that are all also very driven and keen on 4wds and offroad vehicle's in general. I hope to see your truck soon.

Years 4wding: 6+
Drives A: Toyota Hilux, reasonably modified, lockers, 4" suspension kit. Plans to do solid axle swap to get rid of the independent front suspension setup.
Des' 2 Cents: My passion in life revolves around the beach and the bush. Luckily enough with a 4WD I get to experience the best of both, not only do I love the thrill of those nasty hill climbs and those treacherous bog holes, but soaking up those sereen and beautiful locations that without a 4WD you wouldn't be able to see. I also have a passion for motorbikes both on and offroad for the same reason i enjoy 4WD's, is the freedom that you get to feel.

Zacs 2 Cents: I've grown up with the thrill of off-road adventure, from the day I was born into the Bushdriver family. To this present day, my 4WD interests have turned into a burning passion for vehicles, from Japanese street cars to big tyres and impressive flex on trucks. The horizons are broad. Being part of of the Mitchell Brothers family has made me feel at home with my job, I could even say it's a hobby And I'm looking forward to our future projects because the customer feedback is nothing short of amazing, this makes me proud of our work. I guess my two cents would be to stay modest, don't talk up your ability and just perform at your personal best. That way the world isn't expected of you and the final result will always stun and impress.
