If it’s anything like the other jeeps I wouldn’t want the fuel bill

I’ve been looking into getting bags installed at the rear. A buddy of mine has had his boss install some on his new Hilux and seems to cope with the weight really well. I drive past a DVLA weigh bridge quite often on the A14 and I’m constantly worried that I’m going to get pulled even when I’m within the threshold as it bogs down so much. Especially when towing also.  

We run air suspension on all our arctic tractor units and trailers obviously, as regards retro fitting air suspension to regular cars/vans/pickups/suv’s etc, i’m not up on the legislation side of things but do often here of only good reports from doing so. A lot comment on the handling feels more positive and less wallowing at the rear, towing is far more tolerable and forgiving apparently. And again i’m not 100% sure but think you can get plated weight gains from it also. Others may be able to advise more.
Only bad review regards air suspension was on my mates P38 RangeRover..... but were just a garbage setup full stop

But the price might be rather prohibiting

I cant help but think of the new Ford F-150 with the 3,0 Powerstroke diesel. There is one or two dealers here in Denmark who started to import them im low numbers. It's 250 HP and 600 (!) NM, so should move a 3,5t trailer with ease. And as far as i understand, they are not much bigger than a Ranger?

Maybe there is a UK dealer (possibly not official Ford) that imports them?

Personally I may have paid over the odds for a Mercedes pickup, but now knowing that it was just a Navara under the bonnet, that could only go 60mph just to make it even worse.
