if you are going to do a LOT of off-roading, you need more than Verizon/AT&T as national parks may not have cell service anywhere. My D and he BF figured that out last year when they went camping in Mendocino. (No cell service = no phone, no google/apple maps....)

For that you need a SAT phone with GPS; Garmin makes a popular one.

Thank you for this thread. Interesting things to consider. I have a MX and frequently go off on dirt roads, forest roads. I live in southern Arizona and no Superchargers south of I-10. I worry more about flat tires. How many of you carry a spare and the necessary equipment to change a flat? My one experience with extended no cell service was in the Chiricahua Mountains, se corner of Arizona. I drove in through New Mexico and the clock got stuck on New Mexico time. It did not change when I drove into Arizona, even though there was cell service. In fact, it did not change back to Arizona time until I was almost back to Willcox heading home, dozens of miles from the New Mexico border.

Tow hook port is in the front bumper. Hook is in the frunk.

Side note: I like the exoskeloton backpack- very old school! I used one of those in college when I use to borrow equipment from our gear sharing club
I've actually had the backpack since the 70's when I was in college. I know about the front tow port. I need to know where to hook if I need to pull from the back. As far as I can tell, my only option would be to buy one of those attachments you bolt onto a wheel.

Something is wrong with that picture.... it's too clean!!!
But your pup is adorable.

That's because most of the road is either granite, or damp - but not muddy so good traction - otherwise I wouldn't chance pushing through without having a place to attach a winch...
