    Re: Land Cruiser 70 Namib edition

    They didn't mention the most important part - a second cup holder!

    Think that is available aftermarket? I would love to get one. How they can only have one cup holder standard is beyond me.

  10. Re: What would the perfect rooftop tent look like?

    Stan and Tony both have excellent points. I'm not sure there is a "perfect" roof top tent, because of course it matters what you want to do with it and what kind of vehicle you have.
