Brostar, I notice from your pictures that there are subtle differences in our rigs, Steering wheel, is you horn in the dash like mine or in the steering wheel, my winch is higher and can't be moved to the rear, and on the deck of cargo bed, my floor is above the support bars. <_<

Kinarfi, your model is the upgrade or 2008.5. Yours is better all round with the improvements that Joyner have made. My horn is in the dash and my deck of the cargo bed is solid checker plate steel. Your design is obviously a lot lighter in the rear. You should be able to take your winch out of the front if needed for the rear. It's about a ten minute job. I like the graphics on the new model too.

Cheers Mike.

Our earlier models also have side mirrors. The newer models do not have side mirror. The newer models also have a handhold for the passenger, dune antenna mount, angle braces on the rollbar, access holes to service the engine in the bottom floor, bigger brake disc, gas tank under the seat instead of up front and supposedly more clearnce on the fenders. I will call them changes as IMHO not all are upgrades. I had the chance to exchange my rear box/storage area for the lighter unit with the plastic and turned it down. Did not think the weight diff. was worth it. If & when I run at the dunes, I will remove the entire unit and install a sheet of aluminum diamond plate to get rid of the weight entirely.

I have two of the new rear plastic trays but what concerned me with them was people riding in the rear & going through them onto the engine after a bump. The do look fairly solid having said that. The plastic would handle a fair bit of heat before they melted Cinda but if you are worried about, an engineer could cut some diamond plate to fit in 1/4 of an hour.

Cheers Mike

From what I have gathered from reading all the posts and looking at the pics of the Troopers I have already has the fuel pump next to the tank and the latches for the rear rack are behind the seats. Does any one have any idea what kind of mileage they get I Have never bothered to figure it out but I think its good.
