Meet Our 4×4 Adventurers

Jason Collins

Jason has always had a passion for things 4×4, thanks to his father. As a kid, he would spend time every weekend bonding with his dad and his cousin while working on his dad’s 4×4. When they could, they would spend time off-roading and exploring. As he grew, Jason realized he wanted to own a 4×4 just like his dad and set out to achieve this dream. He’s learned over the years as a 4×4 owner and loves being able to share his triumphs and struggles with others, so they don’t make the same mistakes.

Why are you writing for 4×4 Reports?
I am writing for 4×4 reports because, for as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for all things 4×4. When I was younger, I dreamed about owning a 4×4 because my father owned one and let my cousins and I work on it every weekend. We would also go on countless off-road adventures whenever time permitted. These adventures and days spent learning everything I could about 4x4s fostered the passion I hold within my heart for 4×4 models.

Do you have a favorite 4×4 brand or model? If so, why?
My favorite 4×4 brand is Jeep. It is my favorite because my first 4×4 vehicle was a secondhand Jeep Wrangler. I had to fix her up a bit before I could drive her, but it was well worth it considering the many adventures I had with it.

What tips do you have for finding the perfect 4×4?
When you’re looking for the perfect 4×4 model, a few tips that have always helped me are to:

  • Determine the style you want. There are many different 4x4s on the market with different body shapes and stylistic elements, so it’s important to choose the one you would feel happy to drive anywhere.
  • Figure out how powerful you want the 4×4 to be and which engine you prefer, whether diesel or petrol. Take special note of the horsepower and torque ratings,s as this will tell you how much power you will receive while driving. If you pick a model that isn’t overly powerful, you might be unable to hit up all the trails you have on your bucket list.
  • It’s crucial to carefully examine the 4×4 model you want to buy if you have found the one you like. If you’re buying a second-hand model, you should take it for a test drive and hear how the engine sounds. You should also check that all the systems and components work. After all, you don’t want to buy a 4×4 that will require extensive repairs unless you buy one for a restoration project. If you’re buying a brand new 4×4, you must ensure it has the features and accessories you want.

What tips do you have for finding good deals on a 4×4?
When you’re looking for a good deal on a 4×4, there are two tips I can give you.

  • Go to auctions. At an auction, you can get incredible deals on secondhand 4x models. There are often many good deals on deceased estate and repossessed vehicles.
  • Comb through social media platforms like Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree. There are many deals on these sites, but you need to be careful not to get scammed because if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

What do you consider must-have features in a 4×4?
There are a few features on a 4×4 that I consider must-haves. Every 4×4 model I have owned had to have excellent suspension for my off-road adventures, spacious interiors for my gear, and proper 4×4 tires that can handle the terrain I traverse. I also always have to have decent towing capabilities with my 4×4 for when I want to pull my teardrop travel trailer.

Tommy Verrcity

Tommy Verrcity is a self-proclaimed gearhead with a passion for the automotive industry. He’s been passionate about sports cars, trucks, SUVs, tuning, and repairs since he was a kid. Now he shares his years of experiences and knowledge with 4×4 Reports readers so you can learn from his triumphs and challenges. He hopes that with his knowledge, you can avoid some of his early blunders and have an easier time learning about your 4×4.

Why are you writing for 4×4 Reports?

If it has four wheels and an engine, then I am interested in it. Long story short, I fell in love with cars when I was a kid. Plus, I like the idea of driving in the wild. It is a refreshing and satisfying experience that fulfills the soul. It’s an addiction

Do you have a favorite 4×4 make or model? If so, why?

My favorite make would be Ram because they make nice vehicles. Their latest models are certainly on my bucket list to obtain. My favorite model would be the Ram TRX because it has a supercharged Hemi V-8 and 700+ HP.

What tips do you have for finding the perfect 4×4?

To me, the perfect 4X4 should have great performance off-road and lots of towing and hauling capabilities. You can’t have all that in one model, but a worthy 4×4 should have the ability to handle heavy-duty work.

What tips do you have for finding good deals on a 4×4?

Considering the current world we live in, a good deal is hard. Just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean it’s a good deal. Make sure to sit inside the vehicle with the engine on and do a thorough check before you make a final decision. Your best option is to get it inspected by a professional.

What do you consider must-have features in a 4×4?

Must-have features for me would be cupholders in the right place, powerful AC, and a responsive infotainment system.

Barry Juma

Ben has an IMI Light Vehicle Technician qualification and once worked in a fast fit garage. He loves working on cars, but he found a significant amount of joy in writing about them as well. He loves being able to help other 4×4 fans balance their need for adventure with the current cost of living, along with being able to offer practical solutions and products. Being able to make this something he does every day is the cherry on top.

Why are you writing for 4×4 Reports?

I’m writing for 4×4 reports because, while I love off-roading, I believe the current cost of living should be factored in. It’s about finding that balance between a great 4×4 and being able to get to work every day, too. Practicality, I suppose.

Do you have a favorite 4×4 brand or model? If so, why?

My favorite 4x4s are the classics: Willys Jeep and the resultant original Land Rover (and then the Defender); the Range Rover is also great, while the Toyota Land Cruiser is probably the all-around best ever.

What tips do you have for finding the perfect 4×4?

The most important thing to look for on a 4×4 is a locking differential. No locking diff = stuck in the mud.

What tips do you have for finding good deals on a 4×4?

If you want a casual 4×4 on a budget, I like old, high-mileage models. These will be much cheaper, but with proper care, you’ll get them in an off-roading-ready condition. Just don’t expect to use them often on the road.

What do you consider must-have features in a 4×4?

Must-have features? Again, a locking diff. You also want a high ride height, strong suspension with a good amount of travel, a high air intake (so you don’t flood the engine when wading), and manufacturer-fitted big wheels. Oh, and plenty of torque (horsepower doesn’t matter so much, I’d say).
