AHHHHHhhhhhhh... lol. Well they look small (= smaller than stock), even though the rubber is big. I just don't know if Renegade brakes would allow 16" wheels ; I know you can't on KLs.

Late edit : just checked and yes, 16" does fit on Renegades.

The mounting points for any of the rails or roof rack systems are simply rivnuts secured to the top of the vehicles roof. They are not very supportive. I'm curious to see how this turns out. With that much weight on top of a KL, I'm assuming the top might cave in lol

The rivnuts are right above the pillars of the frame, right?

Not sure what the KL rails are made out of, but they're definitely some type of metal. Probably steel, iron or some type of magnetic aluminum? I just went to put a magnet on them and it attached with some intense force.

Camping went great. Didn't hook up the annex due to lots of mud on the ground. Tent held up well to a fairly hard rain. Drove with the tent all week with no issues and no noticeable hit on my mpg.

How are those roof tents in windy conditions? I would imagine you would need to be out of the wind. Those look like they would bounce around if it were windy....

I can't imagine that middle-of-the-night visit to the latrine. That first step out the door would be crazy....

I like the idea of being above the food chain, but have gone a different direction. I'm lovin this trailer. Used to tent-it but now that I'm an old guy, the ground is harder than it used to be. I've added 15" tires wheels to the trailer (235/75/15) and an axle spacer kit to kick the trailer up to 12" of clearance. The whole rig weighs in at about 1100 lbs loaded. I'm leaving for Moab on Friday, 3 March.
