If You Haven’t Watched 4WD 24/7 You’re Missing the Action

Perhaps you’re familiar with this off-road YouTube channel called “four-wheel-drive (4WD) Action.” Well, now it’s called 4WD 24/7 and if you haven’t watched you’re missing out. The channel features some of the most insane off-roading and overland challenges ever, and it’s set in Australia. Admittedly, my sons first showed me the channel. But once I began watching, I was hooked. Now my entire family curls up together for some 4WD 24/7 Action.

What is 4WD 24/7?

The channel has millions of viewers, and every post is related to off-roading. Who doesn’t want a piece of that 4WD Action anyway? They film trips all over Australia, and a quick look at the videos on the channel show headlines like “No One Tests Utes Like This” or “It’s Hard to Believe This is Allowed: Fraser Island.” The interesting titles call us to click and soon the viewer is captivated by an adventure or tutorial.

The off-road YouTube channel used to go by the name 4WD Action. Today, it’s called 4WD 24/7. It’s rough and tumble. It’s unexpected. Really, it’s just fun. And it’s in Australia where the off-road scene is legendary.
