Sam Young 4×4 Facts
💡Full Name and Age
Sam Young is 30 years old. (So yeah, he’s still young)
🤑 Net Worth
YouTubers are typically wealthier than they admit, often downplaying their net worth to appear more relatable to their broke AF audience.
As of 2024, I believe that Sam Young 4×4 has a net worth of $950,000 AUD.
This is based on the value of his Caloundra home, workshop, online business, sports car and 4×4. So yeah, he’s not quite a millionaire just but is inching closer by the minute!
🤩 Income Streams
Merchandise sales and YouTube ads
Sunshine Coast, Australia.
He does head down to Brisbane quite often. I’ve seen him cruising up and down the Bruce Highway. 😎
A hungry work ethic by a man who got down on his luck.
❌ Notable Complaints
He was arrested as the QLD Police appeared to target him and other 4×4 influencers for modified vehicles.
🚀 The X-Factor
A man who’s keen to recover from incredible losses.
📈 Creator Trends
Sam’s channel continues to increase in popularity, ever since his Patrol was stolen. It’s bitter sweet that the theft appears to have worked to his benefit, simply as he wanted to grow his following in the first place.
🕵🏻♂️ Private Life
Sam Young isn’t dating anyone at this time.
👨🏻💻 My Verdict
Sam definitely deserves a larger following for his epic content that’s helped so many other people to explore this great country.
I’m Joshua Smith from Australia. I have been building profitable content sites since 2011.
Today, in addition to managing my own portfolio, I actively help others on their journey.
How much does Sam Young 4×4 make and how?
Many people are surprised by how much offroad influencers make these days.
Sam Young 4×4 makes an estimated $9,000 per month on YouTube.
He does this through:
➜ YouTube ads that play on his awesome videos
➜ Numerous small-time brand sponsorship deals (Such as Sparesbox)
➜ Sales of his exclusive merchandise
➜ Selling his own Cameo videos (they make for a great birthday gift!)
So yeah, he’s got a 6-figure online income and the freedom to live his dreams. 🤑
This is why Sam Young doesn’t have a real job. 100% of his income is from being an influencer.
His previous jobs include sales rep and warehouse operator at Sparesbox and Fulcrum Suspension.
Did Sam Young’s Naughty 40 Get Found by Police?
Sam Young had his Nissan Patrol (NGTY40) that was stolen in late 2022, creating a fury of interest on social media, including many willing to pitch in and help him out.
Additionally, this was discussed by so many 4×4 influencers for weeks after, with many of his fans (and fellow creators) feeling sorry for the man. Worse still – the criminals targeted him personally (they knew what they were stealing) and were watching his videos where he hoped they would return it. Of course, they didn’t.
So sadly, Sam Young’s 4×4 has NEVER been found or recovered.
And that’s despite the criminals being pulled over by police and questioned.
I don’t think the QLD Police want to follow this up due to Sam getting in trouble earlier. Some internet sleuths have claimed that the QLD Police know exactly who took it but won’t pursue it at all, although this seems unlikely in my opinion.
Today, Sam is moving forward with his life with new off-road builds.
If anything, having his 4×4 stolen massively boosted his channel’s growth. It kinda worked to his benefit as he wouldn’t have some of the audience he has today if his 4×4 wasn’t stolen. 👍
Why Did Sam Young 4×4 Leave 4WD 24/7?
Many people believe that Sam Young 4×4 left 4WD 24/7 as they had a falling out.
However, it actually seems that he just shifted to work for Sparesbox, but is no longer working for the eCommerce company as he moved to the Sunshine Coast and Sparesbox HQ is based in Sydney.
These days, he’s focused on building his YouTube channel and leaning on other creators to build up his following and fan base. I don’t think he’ll ever get to 100,000 subs, but I hope he proves me wrong! 😃
Many people (including myself) enjoy Sam’s channel because:
➜ He’s been brutally honest about his challenges
➜ He is super down to earth and is having a fair go
➜ He gets along well with many other 4×4 creators
His work ethic is certainly incredible.
Creator Red Flags
Sam Young 4×4 has drawn controversy and was arrested by the QLD Police for dangerous driving with his clown car. It was all in good fun though.
They’ve also targeted him for vehicle mods and other shenanigans. Sam should know better – we’re not allowed to have too much fun here in Australia. The fun police are everywhere. 😔

I’m so inspired by Sam’s journey, mindset and success on YouTube. I believe he has it in him to recover from such incredible losses due to the Naughty 40. Heart-breaking I’m sure!
From watching so many videos, there are key lessons that can propel our lives forward, both on a business and personal level.
My key takeaways are:
➜ Surround yourself with the right people (Sam’s got a good crew around him)
➜ Stay hungry and work hard to build something incredible
➜ Keep an open mind to exciting opportunities out there
➜ You can earn your own freedom online, starting today
And with the right mentor, anything is possible. 👍
Sam has helped thousands of people in Australia’s offroading community, and I hope he continues to create for years to come!
