Here is a nice wee bit of inspiration for all of you adventurers out there!

Be a Good Bastard - Robin Dicey

Planning on a summer roadie? This is Robin Dicey and his D-Max Trixie. They've just been on one hell of a roadie...

Looking back at the Isuzu D-Max.

It all started back in 1963 with the ISUZU Wasp. Now almost 50 years later, the all new D-MAX defines this latest era in utes. With purposeful styling, superior comfort and safety and our most efficient diesel engine ever, the all new ISUZU D-MAX impresses. Whether you're hauling a big load, powering through the work week, cruising on the weekend or heading off road, this is one ute you can depend on.

Over the years we have been proud to deliver a significant amount of these reliable work horses to the top of the south, and have a good range of used ones on our yard as well. 

Here are some of our older models as photographed back in the day when they were our new model demonstrators. 


The D-MAX is available in 3 different cab options, in 2WD or 4WD, and sharply priced compared to the competition. A slap on a camo wrap and you have yourself an ultimate zombie apocalypse survival tool, or an equally awesome hunters truck, like this one we did up back in 2012!

Everything we've learned from more than 70 years and 20 million diesel engines has gone into the most torque-fuelled D-MAX engine ever. All of power, and a towing capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes, gives you what you need to carry a heavy load, all backed by Isuzu's famed reliability.

Strength where it counts.

The D-MAX hails from a line of the world's largest truck maker so you know it's going to be tough. A strong chassis allows for even better balance and performance while delivering superior stability and road holding in all conditions using high-grade steel for strength, the D-MAX is nothing but tough. And that is important. If you want a workhorse that can handle it, you need to know it has got the bones to hold it all together.
