I am no longer putting on door hinge bolts or the door plungers. I am also only putting on 4 hard top screws (2 on roll cage, 2 rear near seat belts).
I wish the front door electrical connection was easier to pop off. I need to use a key to pry the lever up.
I only tow it to the ramp that is about 1/4 mile from my house to put it in the marina for the summer.
I'm going to take it Thursday to fill it up with gas since fuel at the marina is like 4 bucks a gallon and at the gas station 1 mile a way on land it's about $1.60. 80 gallon tank it's worth...
The backstory is even funnier. It was pouring rain. Truck was in the driveway and at like 6am something shorted and my monster stereo turned on by itself and woke everyone up.
The top was up but I guess enough water got in to cause a short.
You are correct. I was thinking GCVR. Which is basically the weight of the truck and anything on / in it on a scale.
I do think that the GCVR and payload capacity are related, just not sure how the calculation works.
I have a 22 foot Outrage with a dual axle trailer. It weighs about 5500 pounds loaded up with fuel and gear.
I only tow it a few miles to the boat ramp but I still got the max tow.
Didn't need the 'luxury' overland features
Can tow other things if needed
Got it back today. It was completely detailed and did not have a spec of dirt anywhere on it.
Repairs look nearly flawless. Color matched the paint perfectly. Even the orange peel is almost exactly as the factory painted body panels (slight bit less than factory - but you have to look really...
If I were buying right now I would wait a few months.
I predict that there will be some deep discounts, if they are still able to make cars. It would not surprise me if production does not resume this model year.
