A Journal of our Travels

2022 Isuzu D-Max (2022 - )

We ordered our Isuzu D-Max in August 2021, knowing it would be a while before we saw it. It finally arrived in April 2022.

It is a Dual Cab SX 4x4 manual with HiDrive Canopy, GVM upgrade, and more to come.


Canopy Fitout

The D-Max has been fitted with a HiDrive canopy. It is a 2 door, not 3. This allowed us to edit a spare wheel Carrier (fold down) and jerry can holder on the rear.

The canopy has been fitted with compartments for storing our equipment and supplies.

A fridge (CF-80- Dual Zone) has been fitted, along with am AGM battery,

Electrical Control Plate

I installed an electrical plate under the bonnet for fuses, solenoid etc.

Rear View Camera

A Safety Dave camera has been installed on the rear of the canopy in place of a rear view mirror.


Taken care of by a HiDrive 3500Kg tow bar and Redraw TowPro electric brake controller. A standard 7 pin connector is used. Anderson plugs will be fitted to take care of trailer battery charging (SB175).

Recovery Gear

We carry a range of recovery gear, especially as we quite often travel alone.
