    Go buy a copy of Chris Boden's guide "4WD tracks in Tasmania". You will find it invaluable.

    the three main ones that i go to Lotus are:

    Margate Plains, you get there by traveling to margate (big surprise) and turn up Van Morey Rd at the footy oval and keep driving up hill for about 10 min. the track is mostly fire trails with large bog holes along the way but you can go around most of them if you really want and the prize at the end is a 50m water fall called pelverata falls and you come out on top (unlike the walk).
    Murdunna, you turn left opposite the servo in murdunna and drive a fire trail for about 5-10 mins and pretty much explore in any direction. because it gets lots and lots of rain its possible for very big bog holes to jump out of nowhere.
    jefferys track, its a really good track but im not 100% sure how to describe exactly how to get there but the track runs from Crabtree to New Norfolk behind MT Wellington. another good track with heaps of clay and holes but a fairly stock 4wd could drive it.

    Nice bog hole.
    Your truck seems to have a small tilt to it, better get that checked out.
