When I picked it up









The pictures are actually old....I will have to get some more taken. It has several "modifications" done, as I can never leave anything alone

More of what it looks like now....Still things in the work down the road!

Pulls just fine...I've had a double trailer with 2 jektski's and 4 adults in the car while pulling over the 4th of July weekend. Didnt have much of an issue (just the brakes did fade alot more but that is expected), and the temps still stayed around the 180-190 mark (GF laughs at me as I watch these things w/ data logging software, but it was the first time I had that much weigth in the nox).

I just wish for a better gearing of the tranny in the V6....either steeper tranny gears or a different final (2.77 blows imo)

Sounds like you need to start a build thread with all the mods you have completed and all the future mods as they are completed!

Right now it has a few hundred miles of road dirt, brackish water over the rear rims, a former lovebug city on the front, dust colored tires and I'm sure water spots now because I left it outside when I got home and unpacked because it was too dirty to get into the garage, and it rained..

Oh the interior has sunscreen on the seats and sand/gulf of mexico water in the all weather floor mats


All in all it looks as it should honestly

Well I use mainly on the weekends as my toy to pull my other toy...last weekend was my moms bday, we rented a condo in venice for her (about 4 hours from my place and had a family get together), took the seadoo and most of the time I had the nephews and the boat launch parking lot was not paved

No....I couldnt justify having to order an equinox as I could not find one in FL, and when it comes down to it, I just personally do not feel the AWD system in our cars could transfer enough power to the rear to really make a difference, I've seen other AWD setups tested, if the fronts are slipping the car isnt going anywhere (which will be the same for me )

Yeah I was in the same boat being in a similar climate just North of you... Its not worth the added wear on the tires and less fuel mileage, ect... At least thats what I would think you would find if you had it..
