Meet Lil & Jake, TAG's New Brand Ambassadors

Meet Lil and Jake, just two everyday Aussies with a passion for hitting the dirt road and occasionally getting seriously bogged! Having spent over a year on the road, there is absolutely no stopping them. Posting their weekly adventure videos on YouTube, they have filmed some of the most iconic and remote 4WD tracks around the country with big plans to tick off many more! From 10 days of gorge hopping along the Gibb River Road to a couple of weeks of bog hole hunting to Cape York, there is no chance in slowing them down.

Lil & Jake first met in 2021, and after just 6 months together decided to leave everything behind to travel around Australia in their 2021 XL Ford Ranger. The pair have said they are currently running the best rear end on the market, starting of course with the TAG Extreme Recovery Towbar, offering maximum departure angles, without adding excess weight - very important features for their 4x4 caravanning adventures. They also have a CURT Rebellion Shockdrop Ball Mount, a cushioning drop hitch that will make towing the van feel smooth as butter. They also made sure to grab the TAG Direct Fit Wiring Harness, ensuring the fitment process was quick and painless.

The XR Towbar sits under an impressive, fully fitted out Trojan Tray and Canopy, and keeps good company with Dobinsons Suspension, Off-Road Animal Bullbar, Phat Bar rock sliders and more.

To be honest, we'd be here all day talking about every mod they have made to the Ranger, so if you'd like to find out more about their setup be sure to checkout their channels, they drop a new video on Youtube every Saturday and are frequently posting great content on their Instagram, Facebook and TikTok.

This year is gearing up to be their biggest one yet. With plans to hit places like the Victorian High Country, The Simpson Desert, Morton Island and maybe even a return trip to Cape York! When asked what they were most excited about in this coming year they replied,

We cannot wait to share as the carnage unfolds from somewhere in the middle of nowhere, exploring the best Australia has to offer.
