Josh Fleming is a carpenter, and works with Purkiss Construction in Sydney south and the Illawarra region, among other areas.
Josh bought his 3.2-litre Ford Ranger in 2017 as a primary work vehicle but he uses it regularly as a tourer.
Crafty: Why did you buy your Ranger?
Josh: Liked the look of it and it's good for work and towing my work trailer.
Josh: Yeah, we did two weeks in the Victorian High Country, three weeks down in Tassie, beginning of the year; we've done the snow season, constantly back and forth, three days down the snow in it. Bit of snowboarding down there.
Crafty: Any mods?
Josh: Yeah, just over time, I've added things on: canopy, rooftop tents, a Darche rooftop tent, an awning.
Got a lockbox up top with drop sheets, gas bottles, you name it. It's one of those Rhino lockboxes.
Ski racks on the top [also Rhino].
It also has a TJM bullbar, bullbar-mounted aftermarket Big Red driving lights, a drop-down fridge-slide, under-tray toolboxes and BFGoodrich All Terrain tyres.
Crafty: So, it's fully kitted out for work, travel and leisure?
Josh: Yeah, I got the drawers in the back, got a full 12-volt system and everything.
Crafty: Any problems?
Crafty: Would you buy another Ford Ranger?
Josh: Yep, sure.
