    Hahaha .... I'll help you spend your money .... whether a Benni .. or a quad!:D
    I'm debating on getting a Mavic Pro if I come across one cheap. I'd like to get another Inspire, but they are just too big for just scooting around. If I ever get my drone license, then I may get one for commercial use. I have my 333 exemption, but that still required a pilots license. I'll bite the bullet and get my regular drone license someday. Just have to study for awhile and fork over $150 for the test ... :mad:

    Yes, same thing as a Tracker. I put a full 1/4 “skid plate front to back .that along with 31”tires and winch etc. It’s faster than the speed of “dark”. I had to put rock crawler gears in the transfer case to have enough power to climb and not power out. Now it pulls like a tractor.

    A guy up in Thompson Manitoba had a couple a LONG time ago, he couldn't find any lift kits for them at the time so he built his own. It was quite a neat looking unit when he was done

    I ended up adding 3” square tubing to the frame to lift the body and found some spacers for the struts online.

    That is a lot of work but a good reminder of how we can live off the land. Nature is amazing

    I give you a lot of credit for that hobby! I love maple syrup but when I’ve gone to a sugarbush it sure seems very labor intensive (and they usually have the collection tubes between the trees with just a few buckets for show).

    There are two sugar shacks by us. One is on a century farm and has been tapping for about that long, going on 4 generations now.
