I got the dreaded call for work, So we decided to strip to roof rack and motor to Shiraz, where we enjoyed the former Persian empire from 2500 years ago. We are now ready to load the roof back up and in 3 days we will start for Armenia to store the wagon. And of course, more photos to follow, was just super happy with how this rig presented today on the drive.
Dropping the rack saves me about 1 liter per 100 unless I can get my speed over 120 or below 90, it sits best at either 90 or 130 since thats 2500rpm in 4th or 5th with the torque converter locked and its happy place. Plus I can do most underground parking which in Iran is a plus since street parking is sometimes a nightmare.
