Meet Matty & Em

True blue adventurers at heart, Matty & Em are content creators with a lot of love for the great outdoors. In 2021 they set off on a massive lap around Australia in their 105 Series Landcruiser, spending 12 months and over 36,000km exploring Australia. During this time they put their videography skills to good use and started a YouTube Channel, featuring their epic travels through Western Australia.

Nearly two years on they are ready to do it all again, but this time they will be moving away from the softshell rooftop tent and basic setup of the Landcruiser, and into a brand new Isuzu Dmax kitted out with all the gear.

Read on to see what kinda rig they have whipped up!

The Setup

Matty & Em's new Dmax has had the whole catalogue thrown at it, and then some! Starting with the exhaust, they have done away with the quiet and restrictive stock exhaust and installed a 3 Inch Redback 4x4 Extreme Duty Exhaust with Straight Through Pipe. This upgrade has deepened the tone, improved aesthetics and will provide some well needed efficiency for those long days on the road. If you hear a meaty sounding Dmax pass you by, chances are it's this pair! (You can find the exact kit they used here).

Other performance based upgrades on the Dmax include Safari Armax Snorkel, Direction Plus Pre-Filter, Catch Can and Throttle Controller. For extra squish they went with a Pedders Suspension Upgrade and Upper Control Arms. The front brakes were upgraded and the rears converted to discs, ensuring this beast will stop when it's told to!

For protection the Dmax has Opposite Lock Side Steps, Rails and a Premium Bullbar with Rough Country Winch installed. The TAG Extreme Recovery Towbar brings up the rear and is guaranteed to help Matty & Em make friends with distressed 4WD'ers they come across during their travels.

Setting up camp will be easy as with their Bush Company Clamshell Rooftop Tent and 270 degree awning, and full lighting setup from Lightforce.
