    What brand/size is the top case. I'm considering the Apache 4800 for mine.

    Its a Pelican case. I don't recall the model number & size. I also have a larger yellow Pelican case I can mount there also.
    If I can remember to do so, I'll get the model number for you.

    Dang. That's a lot of snow. As I said I'm waiting on my Corbin and some other electrical items. I have to take in it for the tank o ring recall and I'm gonna wait until that's done before I do any electrical work. What brand of tires are on there.?
