.Thanks for your response. Can you share the mfr. of your armor? Is the Xpel wrap expensive? I love your rig but I won't be doing ice (I hope!)
10 years ago only custom fabrication was available for Cayenne's. We have not seen a need for 'lift kits' these are now available along with more established sources like Frontrunner that makes a lot of gear like roof racks, a drawer system for pre 958 Cayennes but should also fit them too, etc. The Xpel wrap is not expensive - cost comes to play for the install. If you want everything removed/replaced (badges, door handles, etc) that and quality of install are what brings the cost up. We had ours installed many years ago and it has definitly paid for itself vs what we would have paid for repaint and detail cleaning.
In addition to extended off-road trips, we also do endurance rally most in the warmer three seasons. The winter events usually include an ice race. The Hakka's have proven their worth on snow covered trail runs. Our longest rally to date was ten days - 5,500 miles one way. The most severe rally weather was in 2020 where temps got down to -40F, 60mph winds, blizzard, -90F windchill - 'Otis' is at 4:08 in this 2016 video:
