Commencing in March 1994 as a Toowoomba based mobile mechanical business known then as Mick Tighe Diesel Repairs, a sole employee-based business has transformed into the business we know today with around 20 employees. The business was born out of a passion for 4WD's, adventure and a strong desire to build quality relationships & satisfaction with our customers.
Mick Tighe 4x4 & Outdoor now stands as Toowoomba’s home to Ironman 4x4, Marks 4WD Adaptors and proudly distributes and install for over 30 globally recognised 4WD Adventure companies such as the likes of JMACX, Norweld, Alu-Cab & many more unreal companies. We offer a diverse and exciting range of products and services related to the 4WD industry from portal axles, suspension, bull bars, fuel tanks, trays and canopies, towbars, recovery equipment, tyres, winches, electrical fitouts and lighting. Our continual endeavour for growth of both products and knowledge across the board has been a strong force into propelling the business into the position it is in today.
In more recent years the business has seen an increase growth in tourer build’s, specifically 70 Series LandCruiser’s. With builds now created for customers across Australia and as far as Mexico. We have truly fell in love with this side of the business. Testing the capabilities of what a 4WD can be, where it can go and what it can take with it all whilst working with some of the world’s best after-market 4WD products is a dream come true.
Owning and custom building our very own 79 Series and 78 Series was hugely beneficial in understanding these vehicles and their capabilities. In similar tone the vehicles changed our perspective on overlanding / 4WD adventure as a whole, taking us to places across Australia we wouldn’t have dreamed possible.Our Builds
The 4x4 industry is ever increasing in popularity and along with this we are dedicated to continued evolution and expansion of the business all whilst maintaining the foundational ethics and attitude that helped grow the company into what it is today. Continual development in product and vehicle knowledge, highly skilled and trained staff, solid practices, and innovative, creative thinking are all hallmarks to the success of the future of the business.
In 2021 we began to embark on a new chapter in the company, Overland Tourers Australia otherwise known as OTA. With foundational goals to design & manufacture overlanding / adventure products for you and your tourer right here in Australia. From entire vehicle interior fit outs that provide comfort, storage & power for months on end to singular products, intended to seamlessly attach to your vehicle and further its functionality when adventuring.
We look forward to the many memories yet to make alongside our workmates, customers & community and thank everyone that has been part of the journey so far!
