Here's a video taken in late Novemeber 2011.
When you fit the snorkle to these 3 liter V6 Mercedes diesels you can really hear the turbo cackle when you put them through their paces.
This engine has been chipped so it now gets about 600nm torque compared to 500nm out of the stock V8 5.7lt.

Aussie Jeep Commander Hill Climb - part 1

Here's another hill climb I did that weekend. The previous car that went up, A Nissan Navara blew a front axle housing and spilt his diff oil over the track. That’s the cars you see at the start of this video before he tried the ascent.

What a cool rear bumper he has.
Thanks, It's a fibreglass rear bar I made myself in September last year. It's extremely light and very strong and can take some really hard knocks. I'm planning to make a similar front bar next.

Not a problem, send me a PM and we can catch up and maybe we could head up to the Glass house Mountains or somewhere near by for some 4x4ing.

Janowen Hill - track 67

Here's a link to a video from this week end. I'll also be posting a few more YouTubes or you can go direct to my YouTube at "TheMultihull" to see a few more video of my diesel Commander in action.

Here's another with my Diesel Commander stuck in a very slippery, steep sided rain forest gully. It took me about 8 attempts to get her out. Note how much the car is just slipping around on the tracks even before I slide down into the gully and check out the river of mud that races down the wheel ruts. Fun stuff!

Beach driving on the Worlds largest sand island - Fraser Island

Here's a few shots of the Commander on a family camping holiday on the world's largest sand island, Fraser Island Queensland Australia. This island is about a 3 1/2 hour drive north of my home in Brisbane on our sub tropical coast. It never gets too cold and the camping is great in the dunes just up from the beach. There's also great surf fishing and excellent whale watching especially on the northern beaches where the water is flat and glassy and the whales play within 50m of the beach. You get on and off the island by a barge service.
