The weight loss program taught us a lot. If your vehicle doesn't have a lot of power or gearing then you may want to remove parts, not add them. We're not saying go chop-crazy like we did, but maybe unbolt the doors, consider using thinner steel for your homebuilt bumpers, and ask your local 4x4 shop just how much weight those bigger wheels and tires would add to your ride. And finally it doesn't hurt to eat some veggies and slim down your own chubby belly. Every ounce counts.
