Curbside Outtake: Suzuki Samurai With Large Front Cargo Rack

I’m a big fan of the Samurai and all the other related members of its family (Jimny, etc.). I’d like to find one in good condition, and possibly flat tow it behind the Promaster for exploring serious jeep trails. I noticed this one on a walk in Port Orford, especially since it has a rather unusual large front-mounted cargo rack. That’s a bit different, but then these are small cars, so this is one way to add cargo capacity.

Here’s a closer look. It was presumably designed for rear hitches, but if you have a front hitch receiver, why not?

And for additional cargo hauling, there’s not only a roof rack, but another rack out back, over the spare. That would help balance out the front one some.
