@dipodomysdeserti - Gotta justify the purchase somehow, since he likely won't ever take it offroad.
He was in Moab, so he probably went offroading but wasn’t clever enough to find a camping spot outside of Arches, which is very easy to do. A lot of four wheelers nowadays are more into glamping, which is perfectly fine, but not really what I’m into.
We did 12 to 24 on our way to Arches on our previous trip - the change of landscape during that drive is insane. Makes you think you're on another planet. Mrs. addiction wasn't along for that part of the trip, so some will depend on what she really wants to see while we're in the area.
Ye', I'm a sucker for a little branding stuff. So tempted for these.
@fractalfootwork ah, thanks for the link. Advantages over the factory loop: looks and ease of attaching a strap. But both safer than a hook. A friend does serious stuff so he has serious recovery gear. I'm not interested in off-roading but I could see potentially needing a small bit of this knowledge for snow or something.
This is awesome, may look into something similar myself. I've been thinking about picking up a similar Camaro or ecoboost Mustang instead of my i3. this has me leaning more toward the Camaro if I do make the switch.
@krustywantout Eh, not a big surprise. Given the way Ford is marketing the Bronco (see truck flying through the desert) I can see why the town wouldn't appreciate being overrun by a bunch of bro's tearing up trails because they have no idea what they are doing.
I can't find a transit bag here for under 200USD, I was thinking we'd just make one. I feel like shipping from AU would be a deal breaker?
It could be but 200 USD is 260 AUD. Local price is 165 AUD delivered and I can't imagine it'd cost another 100 to send it out.
There's an Engel dealer in town so I could remind myself how they are packaged and see how tight I could pack it down...I can't imagine it'd cost more than AU$50...hopefully less than AU$30 to send it over.
This is the old model transit bag by the way...
