Welcome to Unsealed 4X4

Are you hungry for the latest in 4X4 news, reviews and travel?

At Unsealed 4X4, we’ll give you up-to-date 4X4 news, reviews and how-to's to keep you in fine form.

We’ve all heard of Terrain Tamer, we’ve watched the adventures of Allan Gray and his band of merry apprentices and most likely you’ve bought something from them; be that a wheel bearing or a full suspension kit. But did you know Terrain Tamer has now been in business for 50 years? That’s right, one of Australia’s most popular hard parts (among many other things) companies has turned 50, and we here at Unsealed 4X4 want to congratulate them on this achievement.

The Terrain Tamer story starts out organically as many of these specialist companies do. Founded in 1969 as an outlet supplying parts for Bedford Vehicles, of all things, founder Frank Hutchinson set about creating solutions for people like Bill King. Bill is the founder of what is now known as ATT Kings, and in the 70s was torturing his vehicles getting tourists out to places like Uluru. The roads weren’t anywhere near as good as they are now, and as such it provided the perfect testing ground for what would become Terrain Tamer. Mine operators, cattle station owners and recreational 4WDers have all helped contribute to the real-world R&D, rather than just relying on what an engineer or parts supplier quotes.

Fast-forward to where we are today, and Terrain Tamer is instrumental in developing parts and upgrades for vehicles like the insanely popular 70 Series LandCruiser range. Products such as a modified 5th gear set, which reduces revs in top gear by up to 20 percent, improving fuel consumption and noise in the cab. Something Toyota has now since addressed in current models. Terrain Tamer tells us they now have over 40,000 unique part numbers and they export to over 80 countries worldwide. The business still remains independently operated and family-owned, with Brent Hutchinson now steering the ship.

Congratulations on the milestone, and we look forward to seeing what you come up with in the next 50 years.
