It did when it was stock, but I swapped it out for a 3 cylinder from a Geo Metro. I'm trying really hard for high MPG out in the woods. I went all day on just 1.5 gallons on fuel.

That was enough fun for me. I think we spent 6 hours there. The park was dead. I think there were 4 other vehicles there besides the rangers. Made it through with no dents, and no carnage except the lower shock mount bolt. What I mess I have to clean up. Tearing out my interior to dry out the carpet and clean the seats tomorrow. I HATE MUD! What the hell was I thinking?



I bet that was a blast cleaning out the inside of your truck

A couple pics from Saturday night's work. You can't see the mud all over the back window, extended cab windows, ceiling, and roll bar. Never thought I would see the day I need to take a pressure washer to the interior of my truck. The carpet is thoroughly cleaned now, and all the insulation on the back side is removed so they can dry separately. Haven't go to cleaning my poor seats yet. Yes, I know, I should just leave the carpet out, but this thing is loud and hot enough as it is, I don't want to make it any worse.

why not coat the floor in some kinda of bed liner or other deadener and ditch the carpet ?
wheeling without doors and worrying about the interior getting dirty is like buying a moped and bitchin cause its cold in the winter

Did they sell the Sonoma with rubber floor from the factory in an XL or work truck package? I would get rubber floors for the whole thing...

Great pics of your day at R&V. LOL at the mud, it always gets you worse then you plan. Good job cleaning, most people would just leave it, I can appreciate the extra time and work going into keeping your rig looking good even after a hard day of wheeling.
