If it is your daily driver, let gas mileage decide for you. On the freeway at 70, with anything on the roof, I'm down 1.5 mpg. So for me nothing on the roof unless needed for a trip.

I learned some valuable lessons with my rig today (from 2am to 6am). When buddy posts an SOS on the facebook group asking for a tow and says "I just need a tow up a little hill to get out" the questions you must ask are "send me pics of the hill, and how deep in are you?." I got the perception that he was near the entrance to the off-roading area and needed a tow up the embankment just to get to the main road. NOPE.

Several hours later, after wandering around with two other guys, fording massive mud puddles up to my door sills, splashing through a bog hole that went over my hood and pulling the panic "when in doubt, throttle out" and thankfully making it, getting high centered very briefly in some very deep mud ruts, we discovered that he was like 6 kms into the bush at the base of a 45 degree plus hill with a huge root ball in the middle of it lol. I wasn't able to help much for the recovery, unfortunately, but I suggested the daisy chain of 3 rigs that pulled him out, so I guess that's something.

I also learned that my V can make it through a heck of a lot of nasty mud and deep puddles with little to no drama, so there's that too.

Just added two 12v outlets to power Alu-Cab tent and a dometic refrigerator. Hopefully I wired everything correctly :) All works and voltage is correct.IMG_6146.jpeg

Had a local shop install an Add a Leaf to address my sag. I don’t notice any difference in ride. I didn’t want to go the air bag route due to cost and having to mentally think about another thing to adjust.

Height from ground to wheel well is about 45 1/2” front and 45 3/4 back.

For $188 including parts and labor I’m happy with the results.
