Ok. 14 ply. Not sure I'd even worry about a TPMS on them.

Bomb proof cab? Imagine pushing slow pokes out front. :lol

Man, I would try for one, just to be the odd ball one out there. And can carry bikes out back, ha. :dance

Imagine our HOA if I park it in our driveway. :-o

My son was US Army mechanic, so got that covered. :D

Showed it to wife, telling her can build woman cave hut, put her quilting machine there. She said No.

I’m about 1 hour from Oshkosh. I could go the showroom see what colors they have available. I think the choices are Olive or Olive Drab.

But then if you went boondocking or camping in a heavily wooded park - would you be able to find it?

I'd prefer this (the big one in the middle, not the little white one): Image Just load the rig up on back and off we go!

Do you think my 12V air compressor that plugs into cigarette lighter would fill up one of those tires in a pinch on the side of the road???
