The Crocodile Hunter’s Ute Utility Truck
Fans of “The Crocodile Hunter” will recognize Steve’s Utes since it regularly appeared on his show. Now, Robert has the keys and is sitting in the driver’s seat.
He’s following in the footsteps of his big sister Bindi who took her driver’s exam in the famous Ute as well.

While the Irwins certainly could afford to buy a new truck, this one has a lot of meaning and memories.
The Irwin family works hard at keeping Steve’s legacy alive and the old truck helps provide a great visual memory.
Both of the Irwin children obviously enjoy driving it.
It’s particularly special that Robert used Steve’s truck to go visit his niece.
The Crocodile Hunter would have been over the moon about being a grandfather.
He would have been bursting at the seams. This is a sweet way to honor him during this special time.
