In regards to your review:
When I start sand dunes driving by the Commander, I felt exactly the same (heavy), and I got stuck many times. ,,, in fact I was doubt about the Commander capability in sand, and I thought about selling it.
Now I can assure you that it is all about how to drive it and get more skilled in sand dunes driving, and now I drive the Commander in the sand with a lot of confidence and rarely get stuck.,,,,, still the ground clearance is not very good especially in the front ,,, but not very bad.
In the last trip the Toyota Prado didn't manage to get over some places and dunes where the Commander managed,,, it is simply the driver although the Prado has a very good ground clearance, even more that the famous Land Cruiser.
As you said,,,,, It is all about MOUMENTOM.
I don't agree with you about increasing the approach angle,,, it is pretty good (34 degrees,,, same as the FJ), but I agree about the departure angle but it is not very important, especially that you have very good protection bars below the rear section.
I don't suggest lifting the Commander if you are not a serious off-roader and goes off-road often.... keep an Air-Jack with you.
