Unimog Hill has seen better days, but this time around, it was not for the faint-hearted. The steps have gotten exposed that much, that even the Patrol on 40" tyres struggled for clearance. A wide range of vehicles attempted this rocky hill climb with various tyre sizes. Nissan Patrol ran 10psi pressure on beadlocked rims. Others ran their minimum pressures that they could without air leaks, ranging from 14 to 20 psi. This is a video you've been waiting for. Enjoy watching!! ...
This track is classed as a hard to extreme 4x4 difficulty trail, but can be made hard or even extreme 4x4 if one wants. The name of this track derived from the times when only a Unimog, with the help of the portal axle clearance, could succeed climbing it. Nowadays, the track conditions vary greatly from year to year, depending on how much rain gushes down this part of the hill during each season. There were times of succeeding the climb with only 2 inches of lift and 31" tyres, and at other times unsuccessful with 4 inches of lift and 35" tyres.
The lineup included five live axle 4WD vehicles: • the silver "monster truck" looking Nissan Patrol Y61 on 8" lift and 40" sticky Maxxis Trepadors on Procomp alloy beadlocked rims; • a twin locked Toyota Land Cruiser LC79 ute (pickup truck) on 4" lift and 35" tyres; • a green, twin locked, Toyota Land Cruiser LC80 on a 4" lift and 33" BF Goodrich KM2's; • a green, twin locked Land Rover 110 County (Defender) on 33" BFG KM2 tyres; • and a red, twin locked, Toyota Land Cruiser LC80 on 5" lift and 35" Silverstone Extreme MT-117 tyres.
