That's a great truck. I also like the double cab helux's they drive. They are great deisel trucks and run well offroad. Wish the US would sell some of them.

Shot some video of a botched zip line ride. I was wearing the gopro and the guide wanted to make me fly like super man. Didn't quite work out.

There is one puma truck that we see at the beach on occasion but only on the weekends. I tried to buy the 110 SW in blue but the guy was not ready to sell. I also saw an orange G4 and silver puma 90 but did not get any pictures. I wish I could just live here year round.
The 130 in the picture has the Thule crossbar mounts that I have but cannot get to work. Is there a difference in the roof height
Between a 110 and 130?

The P/U roofs are a bit different. Do you have a ribbed roof?

You could make a bigger spacer/block to get more height.

Saw a well used 90 with lockers and 35s and some heavy duty upgrades underneath it in San Rafael Ca. It looks like it is well used off road

That is Ben Mitchells's D-90. He lives in Palo Alto. He is the original owner.

That came about as part of the Mendo group. TeriAnn has one too.

You can get one of these. http://birmabrightbrotherhood.com/ca.../bb-grille.jpg

35" look so good on ST's

I saw a neglected 97 SW the other day. It was number 476, it was so sad I didn't bother taking a photo. The rear cross member was just about gone and the original bolts had been replaced with hex-heads..

Lovely dirt-covered 110 seen in Greensboro. Spare was strapped to hood with nylon webbing, it appeared.
