    So, are all of these things strapped down on the exterior locked somehow? I would think if one of those vehicles came through Portland it would be stripped clean by morning.

    Right? Or any other big city worthy of the designator.

    - there is a spot for a gas can, by the ladder, but it wasnt there. De-gotosd.
    I like the $190 Kryptonite chain that's looped through the handle of a $15 shovel. The apparently small solar panel attached to the Packasport is an interesting choice. Seems like there would be plenty of more protected real estate elsewhere on the roof. To Montucky's point - how much shit really needs to go on the outside/top with such a big vehicle?

    And the sticker game is telling - POW+Winter is Coming, generic trout and likely-misappropriated old Buffalo Bills decal? This guy plays hard.

    It might be a reminder to lock the bike when it's on that rack. If it's right there you can't forget easily.

    Haha, yup. "Hey, I know! Let's 'Protect Our Winters' by directly knocking off like 10 mpg off our hudge van by relieving it of whatever aerodynamics it had left and toting around an extra 10K lbs of overland equipment all the time in case we have to make that arduous trek to the Whole Foods!" Great logic there, genius Sprinter driver.

    Clearly.

    But homey has a $3,000 bike rack setup ( https://www.sprinterstore.com/produc...oor-bike-rack/ ) and I guarantee you he'll never forget to lock up the Yeti/Pivot/Ibis/S-Works he hoists up there.

    Apparently its a rental that some locals have as a business to honeypot the GOTOS wannabe crowd for $500/day. https://www.aspenjeeps.com

    Im guessing theyre making pretty good money with the shitload of people coming here. Bravo!

    Some of the stuff is hard to see, but below is what I spied back in May. There's a full size spare mounted up underneath the RTT on the rack/exoskeleton surrounding the truck bed. I think it's actually 14 w/ the 3pt wooden shovel, but the full body rhino liner paint job should count for something.

    - Shovel (old-school wooden shaft +3 points)
    - Square flat water jugs
    - Fuel can
    - Traction plates
    - Winch
    - Add-on lights
    - Vehicle mounted tent
    - Fire wood
    - Custom bumper
    - Solar panels
    - Wheel jack
    - Black rims
    - Obvious lift kit+chunky tires

    OMFG that website just reeks of entitled douchery

    I wonder if they charge extra to find/tow the gapers that get stuck or roll over.

    I think i would award another .5 point for the writing/graphics on top of windshield with another .5 possible if its about something to do with the rack

    What is the black, upside-down wine bottle looking thing? Suspiciously looks like a mini version of the larger 5G antennae popping up all over the place.

    Any rim size over 17", *maybe* 18", on a supposed trail rig, wrapped with an aggressive M/T or A/T tire is a negative multiplier per inch.
    How's that 6" sidewall workin? Air it down often?

    No doubt it's very on the nose, but I will say - this a business started by [seemingly normal] locals. At the end of the day, I don't see their advantage-taking as any different than my guide buddy charging $200/person for a 1.5hr "guided hike" on the nature trails in town. Or the skiing company charging you $1200/day for a private lesson+lift ticket+rental for sliding on groomers.

    Rich rubes will pay for whatever looks good in a photo and it's up to the rest of us to be the first to profiteer.

    I have no problem with locals profiteering off of clueless rich tourons.
    And their website has done a good job of marketing to these people. Reminds me of the vibe Talisker was trying to evoke in Park City

    I loved the descriptions of the routes people could take in their hi-luxe Jeeps. Sounds like terrain I take my Outback regularly.
