*sigh* low roof shorties....


Is it bad that I keep daydreaming about getting a 118"wb gasser for a daily driver? Perhaps with dual sliders. Would be just big enough to load bikes in for heading across town, or the shorter trips that I don't need the full size of BoB, nor the camping ability. Though I would still want to build it out a bit...

*sigh*

Go for it!! Other than being a bit wider, slipping into parking spaces, I absolutely love driving my 118" everyday... :D:D

I really liked the short wheelbase but I opted for the 136 wb because I couldn't get dual sliders in the 118. Then I fell in love with the standing room so I figured if I had to get the 136 for the dual sliders i might as well have standing head room.

This sort of thing happens very easily. I was originally shopping for a 1500 136" tall. It's the same theory when buying lumber. It's easier to use it too big than too small.

My first diesel test drive was the 159 ext and boy was it smooth on the freeway! But when I had to make a u-turn after getting lost on the way back I decided to scale back for future forest road driving.

Huh... I've been VERY impressed with the turning circle of the 159"wb. And this coming from driving our other cars, a small Audi and a Mini Cooper.

No dual sliders in the 118"? Darn... hadn't thought of checking that. Having a 136", especially a high roof, is feeling darn close to big ol' BoB, not really worth it.

What I should (not!) do is check out a low roof first.
