Aussie Mick

I'm only new to 4x4 scene and have chosen this awesome Jeep Commander to take me thousands of miles around Australia.

Currently still learning some things about diesels and I'm setting it up for mostly towing, but also some 4x4 and river crossing in the Aussie outback.

Catch you later..................Mick

I've only had my Commander a couple of months......yesterday fitted this wheel carrier - purchased second hand.
They're hard to find down here in Australia - that's one thing off the upgrade list

Wilco Hitchgate - Yes that's the one.

Purchased over here locally "used" - looks like a 2012 version according to the build plate attached.

Does the job - especially considering it's way expensive to get any sort of bumper made one for the Commander over here locally.
