Now there's an idea for a thread, Escapes hooked up to micro tow vehicles, motorcycles, unlikely large vehicles etc. Let's see those pictures.

Too funny. My John Deere tractor pulls my 21 with no problem, but we're not going to be in the passing lane anytime soon.............

Small is beautiful but I can't figure out how to carry my kayak.

Ron, It'd be easy if you replace the roll bar with a full cage. Full cage is much, much better if it ever has to be used for its intended purpose.

Never, I debated long and hard whether to put on a roll bar at all. I like the open feeling and really wouldn't want to drive on the street with a roll cage. Yes, they're more protection but this roll bar is much better than the ones I raced with when I was a young and silly lad. And I'd like to think that my driving style is more mature now, still though, going through corners fast is just so much fun.
