High power CAD/CAM workstations work along side English shaping wheels and tube benders.
Unlike competitive vehicles, the KirkWood Edition is truly a SUV-based sport truck – its pickup bed is fully integrated into the unit-body structure of the vehicle, it’s not add-on. The rear glass, part of the original tailgate, is mounted to the roof structure at the modified C-pillar and is hinged in such a way that it slides up and securely latches to the modified roof rack. The rear seats and lower bulkhead fold down providing a virtually flat load floor from the back of the front seat to the end of the bed.
When the tailgate is lowered, the load floor extends almost seven and a half feet with the C-pillar bulkhead opening measuring 55 inches diagonally. It is possible to transport 4 x 8 sheets of plywood or sheetrock without the need for a bed extender. Just attach two of the custom-designed restraining straps to the provided mounting points and you’re ready for almost any home improvement project.
The Kirkwood also sports 18×8.5″ rims, voice navigation, a flip-down 6.4″ LCD screen, VCR, and DVD, not to mention a 10-disc CD changer and GPS.
