- Cheapest Option - regular solid tires, remove HD-Antilock brakes, active suspension, HTM, overdrive, UM for turret, no-paint windshield: 7077.8 lbs (722.2 for cargo/passengers), $31,142.50
Design Notes - This is an "SUV" version of the Logos, which was meant to be a 2063 "minivan." However, I wondered if a pickup needed to be a camper to actually count as an SUV - mainly because of the uncovered luggage issue (is there another option?).
Also, in terms of adding to a pickup's HC, spoiler/airdams are $550, 110lbs; radialing 6 solid tires adds $4500 and 90lbs ($3000/450 vs $7500/540), and active suspension is $4000, 100 lbs. So spoilers are cheaper and heavier, yet only work at over 60 mph; radial tires are more expensive than active sus., weigh 10 lbs left and take 1dp off each tire. Active suspension, in a pickup, seems like the best option because not only does it add HC, it also helps with other handling issues.
Originally, I had a Super plant with PC & SC to allow for better towing (to be honest, I still don't know how towing works). But then I saw the price and realized that a Super PP with PC & SC costs $5100, weighs 1100 lbs., and has 2900 power factors while an unmodified Sport PP costs $6000, weighs 1000 lbs, and has 3000 power factors! That's just wrong, but I will exploit it; 100 lbs is really valuable.
I tried making this a camper not only did I lose cargo weight, it was 100+ lbs overweight. And that's just to get protected luggage. Note, I chose the pic of a covered pickup because... I dunno, it looks more like what I wanted.
Name Notes - Zoe is the companion to Logos, Zoe is the satellite to Logos' asteroid. As I said with Logos, this is a cool name - rather than go for Greek (pagan) mythology, scientists used Gnostic philosophy. According to the Wiki: "58534 Logos is a small Kuiper-belt object, more specifically a cubewano, notable for having a comparatively large satellite named Zoe.... In the Gnostic tradition, Logos and Zoe are a paired emanation of the deity, and part of its creation myth.†"
