Looks very good Barry!! :good2:

My E-Gator came with a cab that did not have doors, but the shelter from the rain in the Portland area was significant enough without doors...not too sure what brand cab this was (and I no longer have this Gator or the property pictured here...)

I spent the better part of six hours installing a Curtis Cab on our 2001 4x2 Gator. It's a nice addition to keep you out of the weather and comfortable with a good coat :) View attachment 96217 View attachment 96225 View attachment 96233
I lucked out and got this NOS Curtis Cab from the Green Dealer in Indiana off of an ebay auction, for $1,450 plus "free" truck shipment to Yakima! Shazam!! They normally go for $3,500 plus. I added the top cab lights, the Class 1 yellow strobe, along with the rear view mirror. Santa came early to my garage :)

That's real value for the money :gizmo: The yellow strobe on top is frowned upon - and the shovel in the front holder will bring me into jail :laugh: But: looks good :good2:

That cab on the gator looks fantastic! As good or better than any JD OEM cab on any of the Gator line. Perfect match for that year Gator.

I well remember the restrictions the German TUV(?) had on what you could and couldn't do to your vehicle. Under the SOFA the US Forces could add all manner of lights and such to US plated vehicles. I was stopped by the Polizei, on more than one occasion, but never cited. The best part I liked about driving in Germany were the autobahns. Going over 100 mph, legally, was a real joy. Of course, I had the Harrow leathers, gauntlet gloves, tall riding boots and a full face helmet to ride my motorrad at those speeds. Mistakes are very unforgiving should you go down on two wheels :)

Looks great and it was a great deal as well. I have yet to hear anyone ever regret adding a cab, especially this time of year. Like the toolbox in the back also, very handy and well built. Nicely done!:bigthumb:

Just curious, do they regulate vehicles which operate off road on such things (lights and the shovel, etc) in Germany? I have never been there but have owned many a vehicle which was "born" there.....and they have always been outstanding vehicles with top tier engineering. :hi:

Well, I've said it before in another thread (or somewhere else) and Barry will confirm: Germany is a small country. When I'll go offroad, I've to go there on the road. The distance between the villages are normally 1 or 2 miles. And driving in the fields is only permitted for rural vehicles. So what you see in my vids is a 'legal limbo' here in D. And when I drive in sand workings, .... this is normally forbidden. But therefore we can drive w/ 250 km/h on the Autobahn....

Looks like you've been a bad boy, Barry
There are some interesting buttons on your vest.

The TÜV is one of the oldest technical contoller here in germany. They've started contolling steam engines and grew up w/ the technical progress. But they can only regulate vehicles with a german license plate.
And I think, you had US plates and driving licenses - and it's 30 years ago, when you've contacted the german police

Ok guys, I'm a poor boy and so I can't purchase a full windshield - got this one:

And I needed only 5 minutes for mounting... :thumbup1gif: Makes the GATOR more comfortable for Doris.
