Gavin in 1995 we took our 1993 Mitsubishi L300 4wd to the Cape and back with no dramas (have enen done the Rig road
of the Simpson Desert
) the biggest problem may be the clearance - we had to take it carefully at some of the creek crossings especially if the ruts were deep - sometimes trying not to get into others wheel ruts. We went up the telegraph track most of the way and came back the corrigated road. We even convinced another couple in Cairns
with the older version to give it a go and they did it also with no problems. We still have the same vehcile and set out in 2 weeks for Cape Melville
NP and the Gulf for 3 months (what would we do without long service leave).
Take it easy and the old L300 will get you there - this is our 2nd one and would not choose any other 4wd as we have developed a wonderful set up over our 11 years of travelling. At least we have our bed setup inside if it rains. Let me know if you need any further info.
