I wish I had the newer model today, have to take customers on 1400 steep acres w/1000 ft ascent to top. Naturally I will be worse case underpowered in Van II(though I have tweaked the 16 hp with diff carb & racing muffler(louder too). I think I can visualize how 8 wheels goes up and over better than 6 wheels. Does the longer length create any issues, turning around in narrow area or narrow deadend steep roads what I am thinking about.

What have your heard about Frontier's newer quieter trans???

I do have to trailer and the 8x8 probably means a slightly bigger trailer, a bit more set up space.
