Is that one Rubicon trail rated? I don't see any stadium style seating in the interior.... looks perfect for a Simpson desert crossing... or a FNQ trip.

Not for at least a year as the 2010MY is already in production in the US.

If they are going to bring out a 2010 Commander maybe somebody at Chrysler will get their S#!T together and make some minor changes to the front end to make it easier to fit sensible tyres. It is bloody stupid to make a 2.3 ton 4x4 that can't take a normal size tyre that is suitable for off road e.g 265 x 65 minimum upto 265 x 75. All it shows is the people who design the car have no idea about off road requirements. No wonder Toyota,Mitsubishi and just about anybody else laughs at them. Even the baby Prado and Pajero come standard with 265 x 65, let alone the Landcruiser or Patrol (285 X 75). Jeep need to sort it out or get out of the 4X4 business. There is no point in having 160Kw/500Nm when all it does is dig holes and buries itself in it's own hole because of small tyres.
Maybe someone on the forum knows a web address to send a suggestion to, also if they can change the front slightly make it a retro-fit so we can fix ours without having to buy new rims. Also if they do it the retro fit it will be legal and comply with Aust standards. If ever there was an oppurtunity to fix a stuff up this is it lets get onto it.
Anyway I think everyone knows my thoughts now.

That's why I'm running the MT ATZs and not the ATRs.....

Hi Wanderer. Great to hear the trip went well (apart from the tyres). I was talking to Henry at Procomp and he can get me the replacement rims. But I am thinking of just trying to fit the 265 X 65 to the standard rim, then check the clearance, maybe cut off the bolt end and cut a slot. It is just so frustrating having the basics for a great all round 4 x 4 and the manufacturer stuffing it up because of not listening to the customer. When I bought the Discovery in 1994, I recieved a questionaire 12 months later asking if I had any sugestions for improvements, funnily enough I sent a couple and it was incorperated in the nexr model.
Anyway I will probably be changing back to Land Rover, I don't see the point in spending thousands of dollars to fix up manufacturers stuff ups, which is a shame because that Merc engine is a jem its a unfortunate the suspension/tyre combination is set up for 90% on road. For a tow vehicle people will probably look at the new Ford Territory with the Land Rover 2.7 diesel in front of the Commander.

Well , Love my Commander as a family 4x4. And for towing with a 2.2 ton van. I Think you need a JK or TJ jeep for real 4 wheeling. But the Commander will cover most 4x4 Tracks. I will be geting Cooper ST 245/70/17 next time. Yes Iv'e had them befor and they were good for all Driving
