    It LOOKS like a Ford Crown Victoria. Maybe the OP will follow up and confirm this guesstimate.

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    Now that looks like a good set-up for a true dual sport adventure combining both canoeing and T-Dubbery.

    Noticed the Marquis was sitting surprisingly level with TW carried so far back. Good work.
    Buddy once put his pit bike in the trunk and ferried us and three beater roof-top canoes to run some N.Y. whitewater...Maybe the Susquehanna? Anyways a motorcycle parked at the take out really works better than hitch-hiking back upstream.

    DUDE! Really? ! I thought so but thought it was sitting too high in the back to be true. I have one and was about to sell it in favor of buying a SUV. but this gives me hope. What suspension upgrades did you do?

    GHDave was telling me in Moab that that's the same reason he originally got a TW200. Now he and the Mrs both have one.

    I put livery springs all around (limo springs) thru NAPA with heavy duty shocks to match up front, HD air shocks out back and also air lift coil bladders in back...this gave me about 3+" of lift...I had 245/70/16 all terrian Destinstion AT were great but a little loud on the road and rubbed ever so slightly up front....I now have 235/70/16
    Destination LE2...excellent road manners. Also have high flow intake, polished upper intake and performance lower intake manifold. Loaded like this with gear 16-20mpg on highway depending on load and terrain...unloaded 25-28mpg hwy...it has been a very good vehicle for me
