i was pleased with the lifting. suzi was much more capable.
i realized i was usually running alone, and i carry the kitchen sink with me(just in case), so i chucked the passenger seat for some stowage room.
note: my trips are usually 5 day(or so) in the "bush"- i try to avoid backtracking.
here are some stowage pics.
this worked real fine in the rain- spent 2 days comfortably hunkered down- even snowed some.
i decided to put a locker in the rear and split the transfer case. poor suzi the psychic needed low range to get over ebbet's pass. i have no pics of those projects, but consider them some of the most effective improvements.
