Funny. My guess was "tow pig?"

I like that, though I'd probably go for a more sedate paint scheme.

A friend of mine recently texted me pictures of a full-size van with the DRW setup.  It was almost like he was making fun of it.  Some people just don't understand that two more rear wheels is a great addition to any vehicle.  Well, certainly any truck-like vehicle.

The Excursion only has the rear swapped to DRW spec, so he would need to carry two spares.   Looks like the van had it done all around.  

A few years ago there was a lot of talk about the safety of long-wheelbase vans.   There were some bad crashes involving church groups, etc.   One of the proposed solutions was to convert longer wheelbase vans to dual rear wheels.  Makes sense to me.

Not the direction I thought the thread would take.  But I was going to say a GTI is almost as perfect as a Miata for an enthusiast.  Especially if it is your only car . . .

Awesome tow pig!

the excursion dually is fine; the cutouts in the fender extensions is horrid, though.

Probably easier than extending the fuel fill.
