While we’re getting the last few bits and pieces fitted to our Ford Ranger and planning some trips with it, we’ve taken delivery of the next 4X4 Australia Project Vehicle, and we’ll be doing something a bit different with it.

Our builds to date have always been designed around off-road adventure touring, using the best products and services to equip the vehicles to cope with conditions. This time we’re taking a slightly different approach and creating something truly special for worksite duty as well as weekend escapes.

Our goal is to convert a stock 2023 Mitsubishi Triton GLX-R into the ultimate tradie ute.

We’ll not only make it the perfect work ute, but, when we’re done with it, it’ll be more than ready to rip into weekend adventures with family and friends.

Whether you’re into bikes, boats, beaches or bush travel, this Triton will be ready for anything with its unique tradie fit-out.

With the help of some amazing partners including Australia’s top-shelf aftermarket parts and accessories providers, the Triton will go from off-the-shelf to off-the-hook by the time we have finished with the build.

Partners so far include

We've enlisted the help of film-maker, content producer and, most importantly, tradie, Jamie Gray (@smoko4tradies) to document the Triton’s journey from stock-as-a-rock to worksite warrior over the next six months.

Jamie has previously been the product feature editor of What Tradies Want magazine and is regularly travelling throughout Australia.

The double-cab’s standard cargo tub will be making way for a drop-side tray and toolboxes, but there will also be plenty of accessories and kit to help Jamie enjoy some off-road adventures with the Mitsi.

Watch this space as we will have a pile of new content coming your way on the progress of this Triton Tradie Ute.

We would like to make a big shout-out to Theo and Alex at Brookvale Mitsubishi, who went above and beyond to make this deal happen and get us a vehicle in time.
