    should of built the new super banana from ground up ; design frames , suspensions , roll bars ( just in case ) etc , anchor
    points front and rear for the towing hooks & rings and winches , light bars , built in camera locations inside & out for 360
    views to take on the most extreme boulders of Utah ; make it like the ford flex for four full doors and lots of storage ; built
    in generator charged by solar and by a small wind turbine as you are driving ; 4 on the fly ; have the skin covered in forged
    carbon fiber “chip board” ; maybe a full body skid plate to protect as much as possible ; you design it - Fab Rats can build it
    for your tow truck and trailer , make it so the winch frame/anchor can go up and down as well to give you added height
    maaaan , i already want to build one for myself : ] ; now where can i come up with the funds , hhhhmmmmmmm

    Very nice video, Matt - you are 100% right, better to rebuild the yellow stag than give it away. Years ago I rebuilt myself a MB 190 diesel with tail fins completely new. I weld in sleeves on the beams and after all the welding, I pressed in zinc corrosion protection and vacuum sealed those sleeves. Goes very quickly and the corrosion from the inside, is stopped.
    Outside sandblasted, first primed with zinc dust and then sealed with bitumen. The car passed the technical service in Germany this year without complaint.
    Greetings from Frankfurt and your videos are all really great.

    I absolutely love your channel and all the people who make your videos some of the best entertainment on youtube............which is why I implore you to please please wear some safety glasses and have Lizzy tie her hair back. These things are so simple to do. It would be so so horrible if any of you wonderful people got seriously hurt when it can easily be prevented. We love you guys and do not want to see anyone hurt.
