Whether it's your first tourer or a hardcore playtruck, show us your vehicle or what you're building inside, and keep us up to date on your mods as they happen!

I've always blanked out the plates on my rig cause I have a few classics and a few leagal mods to my rig as well as about 3 sets of offroad tires and don't want lowlifes knowing where I live and come shopping for a ride while I am out. As I do a lot of work at night that makes it easier for them, even on google earth you can see my Holden HR X2 in the drive and my new Pajero out the front. How easy would it be for someone to See it on there and be waiting down the street I go out leave the garage door open Wife forgets to close it when she goes to sleep I come home and find it not where I left it or anything else for that matter.

Come on don't do it to anyone else unless you think it is ok for them to do it to you. And always blank out your plates and rego sticker street names or even that "Bob's Auto" sticker on your car it can be identifed easily, very easily. . . . . . .

I think so Pete, but what is probably worse is my number plate on the front cover of the camping mag!

Really though, my car is 100% legal and there aren't any major security issues up here, so what do I have to loose by it being there?

Apart from dropping yourself in it with the Authorities, Forums like this are often just on-line shopping centres for the low-lives who practice five finger discounting! Even if you just have a picture that shows your house from the street there are Google searches & apps that will let the low-lives access where you live, & posting things like up-coming trip details, adding your name to the list of those attending a Forum Meet-up, posting a pic with date/time details or the attached electronic info, or just posting that you might head down to SuperCheap tomorrow to check out the latest 'must have whatever' can be enough to give them a window of opportunity to help themselves to your gear, & if you've already told them what you've fitted to your car, or that you've got that new Locker waiting to go in, they know what to look for!

So more than anything else, just try & think a bit before you post anything, try to make sure that you aren't HELPING these scumbags to help themselves to your gear! And posting a pic with a rego label showing or with that big windscreen banner advertising whatever is often doing just that! Yeah, I know that you shouldn't hafta worry about things like this, but it is the electronic age, and ANYTHING you put on a public Forum is instantly available to the WORLD, and sadly, the World is populated by people of all types & leanings, & many of them are NOT NICE!!
An Ex-Service person is someone who thought enough about their country & how great it is, how lucky we are to live here, to write a blank cheque made out to 'The People and Commonwealth of Australia' for the value of 'Up to & including my Life!'

Wow, I cannot believe this. I think newbie 4WD Action members should be notified about this. It makes me think twice before uploading any photos of my ute, not that theres anything illegal about it but I guess you never know whose looking at the photo and background its taken in.

If I do end up uploading any photos I will be blurring or covering my number plate, thats for sure. Thanks for the post, if I hadnt of read this I wouldnt of known.

only problem with covering the number plate is that there WILL STILL be something that stands out, something that will still identify the vehicle

nasty ar$e though what happened to the jeep dude though
