klainmeister Yeah, we call it the Magic-X because of it. My brother inlaw has a Pro4x Fronty that gets about 14-16mpg at best. I think the manual tranny really helps.

I appreciate the compliment though, glad you dig!
Even with mud terrains...? That's pretty good. I would be SUPER happy if that was my experience.

klainmeister Well, off-road trailer broke my hitch, so I cut that sucker off and welded on a WAM rear multi-carrier bumper.

Added snorkel for no other reason than why not?

Built a Hakima rack from u-bolts and half channel Unistrut, which I mounted upside down to accommodate the 2.5" foot height of the Yakima Skyrise 2 tent. Super stable platform that now really kicks ass.

Here's the maiden voyage since the mods:

At 120k on the odo and still runs like new!
