Are you looking for reliable 4×4 performance parts or upgrades?
Our workshop is fully outfitted with high-end equipment and tools that will allow us to professionally enhance your 4×4’s performance.
Our performance packages can be tailored to suit your specific car make and model, and to suit your driving needs. The Just Autos team has over a decade in collective experience of custom tuning common rail diesel engines and is determined to provide quality advice and service to our community.
4×4 Performance has many variations as the use of the vehicle will vary from person to person, which is why Just Autos will spend time discussing your setup and desired outcome for your 4×4 before carrying out any work.
4×4 Diesel engines are big, powerful, and hungry for more. Straight from the factory, diesel engines tend to be tuned to less than they are capable of. This is because manufacturers take into account different driving styles, conditions and environments, and try to tailor their engines to perform under these conditions. However, this means that there is a lot of potential in your engine.
Our experienced team and vast suite of performance upgrades allow us to provide a number of basic and custom performance enhancement services, as well as a large number of performance upgrades.
Custom tuning or replacing parts with 4×4 performance parts can greatly reduce your fuel consumption and improve your mileage.
A diesel engine works best with lots of airflow and optimal part temperatures. Replacing certain stock parts can see improved engine temperatures.

4WD, or four-wheel-drive, and AWD, or all-wheel-drive, do not differ greatly. A 4WD/4×4 vehicle usually has a center differential that helps distribute power between all four wheels and is predominantly seen on vehicles that are used off-road.
An AWD vehicle has a four-wheel-drive system that is used to improve road traction, and is usually a safety feature offered on certain vehicle makes and models. However, more often than not, these vehicles only engage all four wheels when necessary – unlike a 4WD/4×4 vehicle that utilises all four wheels while driving, all the time.
This depends on your needs and requirements, and what you will be using the vehicle for. We encourage anyone interested in off-road driving, towing, or touring to purchase a 4×4 vehicle for maximum benefit, when looking for a new vehicle.
4WD/4×4 vehicles are also usually operated by diesel engines, which offer an array of unique benefits that petrol motors do not.
Although 4×4 vehicles are the better choice for those interested in off-road driving, towing, and touring, they can also make a great option for large families and those that travel long distances.
The running costs of any vehicle usually depends on a number of things, such as how often the vehicle is used, where it is driven, and what it is used for.
Newer 4×4 vehicles have advanced technology that make them a far more affordable option than some of the older 4×4 models. Vehicle manufacturers like Toyota are constantly making improvements to their vehicles to lower the running costs, improve driving experience, and increase fuel economy.
Yes! Torque converter lockup kits can save your engine, and your wallet, in the long run, if you use your vehicle for towing, touring, or rigorous off-road driving.
A torque converter lockup kit keeps the transmission fluid cool and alleviates the strain placed on the coupling itself. If the engine tries to spin more RPM than the engine, the torque converter coupling struggles to keep up with the demand and will produce extra heat, but a lockup kit maintains a cooler temperature, even when your engine is working hard.
Long-range fuel tanks are advisable for off-road enthusiasts and tourers that often travel far from towns or cities. There is nothing worse than running out of fuel in the middle of nowhere!
However, if your off-road activities don’t extend past a day away from ‘civilisation’, you can invest in other performance upgrades that could help you save money instead.
Installing a winch is always a good idea if you do not have a proper recovery kit. When traveling off-road, through the bush or even on soft beach or dune sand, your vehicle may get stuck. It is very easy to get bogged down and almost impossible to get yourself out of a rut without assistance.
A snorkel is not only beneficial if you regularly travel through considerable depths of water. These useful parts also help your vehicle take in more clean air, and can even help prolong the life of your engine’s air filters.
However, if you regularly cross through rivers or other deep bodies of water, a snorkel is highly advisable. You may also need to install separate feeds for the breathers from your gearbox, diff and axles.
