Hi Tez, sounds like a great trip and you have the rig to do it. Did ABH in 2013 and its corrugations are up there with the worst. Have you seen the Leyland Bros DVD of their W to E crossing in 1966?..... W

Gary Junction Road would be a good option.

We did it via Dig Tree, Birdsville, Alice Springs, Gary Junction Road, Marble Bar, Mt Augustus to Steep Point mid last year. Good trip.

Hi, Did the AB West to East back in August, WA side of the border was like a highway, but SA side got progressively worse the further into SA we got. The worst section was from Anne's Corner to Tallaringa Well, took us about 8hrs to do 190K's, but we also had a look at both ground zeros. We were towing a camper as well, just really badly corrugated. Great trip though well worth the effort. Great camp spot at Ilkurlka roadhouse, Diesel was $3/lt.

The auto text correction on a tablet at work. I think he did well to get Coober through it...may have ended up as cobbler pedal very easily. :-)
