One of the hills I go up regularly has a steep step off the road & it caught to often there is only an inch or so in height - off a short bed but you are welcome to try it - price negotiable

Looks like we're back to the short bed / long bed discussion that I didn't understand last time round! What have I got? Would it make a difference?

Did the socket survive the dunts on the step?

long beds are no good offroad, to big an overhang at the back.

Long shape tow bar will fit a short bed but sticks out about 6", makes for easy hook up but would be a nuisance offroading,


2006 'new shape' from new 66000 miles, no problems, just serviced every 12k miles.

They will still go where a standard Classic won't
