With all of our staff having a vast amount of experience in 4wding and motorsport of some description, we understand that race tape and tech screws are not an adequate workshop technique when it comes to a professional install when getting a vehicle ready for travelling in remote areas of Australia.

Having travelled to and around Cape York, Simpson Desert, Flinders Ranges, Cooper Pedy, Fraser Island, Alice Springs, and more, we understand what good vehicle preparation is. Corrugations can rub through wiring, vibrate loose almost everything, so itís important to ensure the job is done right to minimise these issues.
Our 4WD mechanics are located at our Pakenham location and we are conveniently located to service people from Dandenong, Narre Warren, and the Greater Melbourne area.


The workshop at Smithies Outback employs a qualified mechanic and a qualified panel beater, with each having over 20 years of industry experience.
In house, we install, Eaton Electromagnetic lockers, LOKKA auto lockers as well as Diff Rebuilds, Part time kits, Transfer kits, Heavy duty clutches and more. We tailor suspension to suit the customerís vehicle, choosing the correct suspension that works best for the application at hand.

We predominantly use Safari snorkels as they have the best fit, and look great on the car. When we install a snorkel we remove the air box from the vehicle and ensure it is water tight! There's no point having a snorkel fitted and not waterproofing the induction system, this has been said to void factory warranty, from our view, if fitted correctly you shouldn't need their warranty relating to air induction.
We offer pre-trip inspections on all 4wds, this includes a written report of all findings and a recommended course of action. In conjunction with this we also offer 4wd servicing and general vehicle maintenance.
