    Hi Anthony / David,

    I haven't heard any news about pricing yet but my guess is that the single cabs will be up around that price mentioned at the very least. Still when you consider the standard gear you are getting, it's not too bad.

    Unfortunately I have to give ours back soon but am doing a long highway trip in it tomorrow and can let you know how it goes.

    Got it offroad properly and engaged the 3 diff locks for the first time this afternoon too.....yeah that's right, this one is full-time all-wheel drive with a selectable centre, front and rear diff locks. So anyway, I still think it's going to be a great performer for the private off road market and we've already got a few ideas for aftermarket gear to make it even better.

    BTW Not sure where that rumour about 24 forward gears came from but this one has 3 x 6 which is more than enough. Let's put it this way ...you could climb a wall .....or loose your licence VERY quickly.

    Regards
    John

    Hi John,

    Is the one you have a dual cab? I'm interested to know what length tray the dual cab will accommodate, the euro spec sheet indicates a maximum of 2500mm but I wondered if this was just a legal limit over there. I did chase Iveco pretty hard about these a while back and tray length was the only thing that I thought came up a bit short (pardon the pun) in the specs.
    Any idea's?

    Anthony

    um dont forget how you work out gears, each box has to be multiplied individually, so its not 6x3 (18), its 6x2x2 (the splitter box x low ratio box) which is 24.

    still waiting on skippers to bring their one round for us to drool over... hey did your one have XZLs on it? love to try one with some good tyres, skippers one just had 9.5r17.5s..

    i'd say it would be like the unimog specs, the overhang they recommend is like 1000.. real short.. i doubt that 2500 would be legal max body in europe either, because they have huge overhang compared to here (think its about 75% of WB..)

    Hey Andrew,

    Sorry, I still don't get it. I've read the book (finally. typical male. read the destructions after the fact) which states 24 ratios , "6+6 ratios with the normal gears and 6+6 with the low gears". In the book the normal gears are called the "half " gears" but I STILL don't get it. The half gear ratios are 1:1 & 1:1.3 and the low gear ratios are 1:1 and 1:3.........doh!!! talk about a brain fade. I was thinking it was simply 1:1 or 1:1.3 or :1:3. Of course I get it now. So it's 6 x (1:1 x 1:1) + 6 x (1:1 x 1:3) + 6 x (1:1.3 x 1:1) + 6 x (1:1.3 x 1:3) ....aarrgghh. My brain hurts.

    And it's on 17.5's but our tyre placard covers XZL's and hopefully the final Australian delivered version does too.

    Hi Anthony. This one is a single cab.

    Regards John.

    umm yea looks about right.. kinda think of it like a probability- ie if you had 2, 6 side dice, the possible combinations arent 6x2, its 6x6 (ignoring that the dice have the same numbers on them).

    And it's on 17.5's but our placard covers XZL's too. Hopefully the final Australian delivered version does too.
    haha i was just having some wild thoughts.. those 1100r16 XLs on my green truck would go reeaalll nice on a daily.. thing would be unstoppable. i dont think there are many tyres that outperform those XLs on dirt/muddy terrain.. i just wish we had the terrain in WA for me to justify their aggressiveness...

    I think the single cab with seating in the camper with engeneered seat belts will be a big winner for the private market, or just a real work ute that can carry a load

    I'm interested to know how it goes over a long run.

    Yeah Andrew....rolled an XZL up alongside tonight. As you can see...much tougher.
