Plate is 8BP235, pretty well modified with front and rear bumpers, roof rack, ladder, and brand f**king new 35" tires. Tons of stickers on all rear windows of National Parks it's been to. Also has pretty identifiable traction strips on the hood.
Thanks. I got the seat in and it's secure and working. I honestly don't know what that rod actually does. It's obviously under torsion, but everything seems fine without it. Does it just assist with the fold and tumble action?
