    Thanks for those photos Claude!

    Looks like another masterpiece from CSM, really like the way you incorporated that rear rack within the confines of a bumper bar.

    Rear storage reminds me of an icecream vender box....

    Fantastic work , some of the finest rigs I've seen on this board come out of your shop.

    Perhaps this beauty should not venture into snow without some sort of tracking device ?
    More ideas, more innovation, it really is hard to keep up.

    Rack on the fender is a nice touch. Great place to strap a tent or camp chair

    Does that fold down table actually rest on the fender rack? or on top of the fuel cans? Whats to keep the table from sagging once you put weight on it?
