muscular torque, it makes low-speed
maneuvers less graceful than they
Up front, there’s a lot of good stuff, and it’s all standard equipment.
The 1000 comes with a sturdy bumper with tow hooks, a winch, turn

As in the front, the rear end has adjustable, piggyback reservoir
shocks and a lockable differential.
