I think i'm pretty much destined to drive slow and give myself an extra hour of travel time. Nearest thing to a mod I could do is a partial narrowing at the back, but even that is looking at 4 sheets of coroplast at 20 bucks each. A skirt for the box would be 4 sheets and an underbelly covering would be another 4 sheets. Not worth it for a seldom-used vehicle, even if it IS a pig on gas. A new 4OD might up the resale, however. 3spd is REALLY stupid. I wonder if i could make a manual shift mechanism for it so i select my gear with a lever or buttons.
