The Unlock-01 Vehicle is a 1988 Holden Jackaroo built by James Garrett and a team of volunteers who have given their time to help raise funds for Unlock Australia. The Vehicle is covered in Custom Livery to showcase the cause and trade sponsors who have donated toward the projects completion.

To test The Unlock-01 Vehicle and raise awareness, we’ve traveled to Landcruiser Mountain Park for Roothy’s Farewell Bash. On the Bitumen it’s an economical 4×4 that handles well, over corrugations it’s smooth and plush, even tackling Camp Road its long travel EFS shocks helped the truck flex like a champion and it coped flawlessly.


With Extractors fitted to the fully serviced 2.6 ltr 4ZE1 EFI petrol engine, tuned to run on E85 Bio Fuel, The Unlock-01 vehicle has that extra poke to conquer the tracks with camping gear in the back and a full roof cage!
Next we headed to Double Island in The Unlock-01 vehicle, with a new Clutch and Gearbox utilizing lower ratios for better off-road ability, that combined with the Custom Towbar allowed us to pull a heavy trailer along Teewah Beach without drama. When we performed a “bogged in the sand” recovery with the Ironman Snatch Strap, the Custom Recovery Points and Rated Shackles really came in handy.
Night driving isn’t an issue with the 2 x 100 watt Spotlights and new Headlight Bulbs lighting the way, while dropping a Deep Cycle Battery in makes sure they stay bright and the engine will crank every morning.


Custom Rock sliders protect the sills and the front mounted rebuilt Warn XD9000 plus rear V9500 winches will pull The Unlock-01 vehicle out of tricky situations. The UHF radio makes it easier to communicate while spotting through those Awkward sections and a top set of Mud Terrain Tyres provides excellent grip to claw through almost every terrain. The Unlock-01 Vehicle is a Fantastic Four Wheel Drive that is Comfortable and Capable as an all round tourer, with money raised going to Unlock Australia. Its an awesome Truck, Get behind it, You can’t go wrong..
