Hey everyone,
I had to dissamble my Roxor to have it registered as a Multi Purpose Vehicle in my county. Title reads 3020lbs and my state's limit for MPVs is 3000lbs. I took the cab, tailgate, winch, winch plate, passenger seat and doors off to make the AW 2980lbs, (certified CAT scales at Love's truck stop). And ran the fuel down to 1/2 tank.
It worked.
Anyway, since the Roxor is all in pieces, does anyone have suggestions on where to put insulation for heat retention. Places in the body and engine bay? And where does everyone put their engine heaters? Is there an engine block heater for the 2.5L? If not where should I attach the 15w heat pads? I have 3.
I know the cab could use it. Any suggestions/ideas is greatly appreciated. As always, I will update my Roxor upgrades and improvements for those of you following along from home
Cheers, Chris

From what I've seen on here there are no engine block heaters available. If you need to have it warm for starting I'd suggest one of those magnetic style heaters for the base pan and remove before you drive it.

Steel strap on Pan Heaters do not have to be removed to drive. All my Dutz air cooled Diesel tractors have them. R Cridler

On my original all weather cab I bought sheets of 1/2" Armaflex for the top. I applied contact cement and it held just fine. It was a huge improvement for sound and insulation
