Since similar combinations, with slight variations, are pretty common, I would hardly consider the DuneHawk inspirational in that regard. But our R51's are very close to the original exterior design renditions, 'cept for the functional door handles that add visual clutter to production bodies.Kyson wrote:It becomes more obvious where we got the inspiration for Storm Grey with Tan leather!
I was the opposite. If I'm going to cough up that much cash, it had better damned well be exactly what I want. When all was said & done, I had one built for less than what they wanted for the previous year's models. I had to wait 3 months for it, but it was worth it.SilverGhost wrote:Storm/Tan was my preference as well. However, my tight-fisted nature compelled me to buy a new left-over '06 in '07, and I only wanted an LE. By the time I decided to pull the trigger, my Black/Tan was the only one left in the area. I still luvvit, but keeping it looking good is a serious challenge.
Excellent snag! I hadn't noticed that before. It's a great design idea. Too bad no one (to my knowledge) has proposed or produced anything similar.Kyson wrote:Notice what looks like an offroad or driving light concealed in the leading edges of the roof rack, visible in the top picture where the Dunehawk is facing forward.
You don't use the roof racks? I'll admit, in stock form they are not as easy to secure stuff to as compared to when I toss my LoadWarrior basket up there, but I avoid putting junk inside at all costs.NVSteve wrote: I've had a couple of loads with 2' x 8' 3/4" plywood sheets, cement board and various other 8' lumber. The one accessory I find the most useful for the PF is my nice $11 tarp, which nicely protects the interior when hauling around cement, wood, etc.
I do use the beefed up Thule rack, but never for anything really long & heavy. Ever worked with cement backerboard? It's basically a 1/2" sheet of, well, cement. A few sheets of that, a few sheets of plywood & a few other wood pieces-it was a very heavy haul. Of course it was snowing when I bought the stuff, so that would have ruled out the roof rack immediately. It's just so easy to fold the seats & lay out the tarp for stuff. Keeps the interior pristine.blink32 wrote: You don't use the roof racks?
