Four years ago, we got together with Isuzu to build the GO2 – a modifi ed off-roader that took the D-Max to new heights of ruggedness and capability. It was meant to be the star of the company’s stand at that year’s CV Show, but then someone in China fancied bat for
lunch (other explanations are available).

The GO2 has been seeing service on our own fl eet ever since, but Isuzu must have liked the spec we drew up for it because
now they’ve done one of their own. Called the Mudmaster, it’s based on the current V-Cross range-topper and features a snorkel, winch, LED grille and roof lamps, lifted suspension, custom rock sliders, larger all-terrain tyres, heavy-duty seat covers, vinyl mats, door handle protectors and more.

Is it named after an obscure new wave album from the 1970s, though? Thought not. Ours can still GO2 places other 4x4s cannot reach – but the competition is getting stiffer.
