Picked up a Trail Hawk in July. Only thing I added to it was a 20" LED trail light and some door tinted ventvisors. Trail light is mounted on the top of the front bumper in front of the hood. It looks sharp.

All I need to know now, is where the trails are! ha.

I would lay off the tint as the police do pull over NY registered vehicles with them and issue a ticket.
Nice SUV... Just remember the turn dial must be in park. Many accidents and deaths reported.

Sorry, another "cough drop" shaped SUV, I cannot tell the difference anymore. Wouldn't mind having it though.

That tint is OEM. Law states the back windows can be as dark as you want, the two front windows need to be clear and they are. It's just a shadow.

As for the turn dial, there is none for this car. The dial is for Sport, mud, sand, 4 low etc. It really is a great vehicle. Parks itself too (if you are lazy)! No kidding.

It's a sub-compact suv. Don't need anything bigger. My wife drives a "mid-size-suv" hahaha. No need for a full size anymore. BUT, the Trail-Hawk is the only vehicle on the market that can keep up with the Wrangler off road STOCK. Check it out on You-tube. It has 4low and locking rear diffs. Car is a beast for its size and it drives smooth and is peppy on the road too. Good trade off for a daily driver. The Wrangler Unlimited was my first choice, but for a daily, it was not a good match for me. This Trail Hawk also has a BOAT LOAD of Tech.

So many people get the aftermarket tint by dealer that is illegal. Good to hear you don't have the dial gear shift. I have it in my Ram and remind people that use it to apply the parking brake when in park. That would make a good deer hunting vehicle like my Honda CRV. Small enough for tight trails. Best of luck with it.

Thank you!

Yeah, I don't know how I would deal with the dial or the push buttons. Modern stuff but I like the old shifter. Oh well. I am coming off a 6 speed manual so even the automatic takes some getting used to. I still reach for the clutch when I put car in drive. HA!
