I mentioned that there was a company in Oz that produced a large vehicle for mines, expeditions, military, etc. Just found the website...
I've never seen a "Kewler " ....."Touring Expedition Vehicle"!
Great find on the website!
Place drooling smiley face icon here...
I love the approach and departure angle, very tough!
Better known as a "Shoka" as in shocker... they're a brilliant idea but they can be lemons...
Most conversions involve cutting a hole in the roof and adding a pop-top.
www.tinyurl.com/35ra68 has details of one owner that ditched the passenger cab and built a camper body on the back. Fits in an open top 20' container.

Ah, maybe not; that pic has been flipped.And left hand drive too!!!
I've owned an OKA for about ten years, very happy with it.
There's also http://www.okaownersgroup.info/tiki-...le+of+Contents which is the OKA Owners Group website; but most of it is inaccessible unless you're an OKA owner. You can see a few for sale on the lower right; and that one pictured before is the new model NT 003, which is for sale in that list.
People here either LOVE them or HATE them, and the debate rages on in internet forums evermore.
I love them and have been looking for one for a while now, but they only ever made about 400 all up and half of those were trashed by mining and tour companies. They are getting pretty hard to find a decent 2nd hand one. Don't know how serious they are with the new model coming out, but looks awesome.
Bluewater, the above poster, has one of the best looking ones around , c'mon man show us some pics. (i've seen it on 4wd action website).
