What's everyone planning on towing with the ZR2?
 
It would be infrequent and I haven't checked specs/weights yet but I'm also getting a Jeep Wrangler that we might tow. Live in Texas but we have lots of family in Utah. I think driving my truck and towing the Jeep to Southern Utah would be the most likely towing scenario for me.
 
Not really planning to tow much, but I am looking to build an overland rig with it. Pretty much this same build as the picture, but with a different rooftop tent setup.

That's a nice setup. What rack & cover is that?
 
The rack is a Venture-Tec and the tonneau cover is a Bak Revolver X2. There’s a new X4 model too that’s pretty nice as well. I like the hard rolling covers over the folding ones, plus it’s a low profile cover.

I'd recommend the X4 model. The fabric on the panels starts to become unadhered with time on the X2, and the plastic buckles are fragile for strapping the rolled cover back. I've had the X2 for 3 years on my 2018 Sierra SLT. I'm going to order the X4 for ZR2.

I am trying to see if there is a huge difference between the X4 and the X4s besides the S is black on the underside.

The huge difference I see are safety slat caps, on previous generations it's a felt fabric that becomes unadhered overtime. I used double sided power tape to get it back on, but it was not as clean as new.

Also, I think the rear corner caps will be a big help, the rubber ends on previous generations seemed to curl back and let minimal amounts of water in. Plus the clasps to hold the cover in the rolled position have improved in design.

The black slats are pretty cool too, but that is just an aesthetic improvement.

Eagle eyes, lol thanks for that good info. I’m sure someone else in the forum will find it very useful as well.
 
Planning on towing my 95 NSX to car shows once it's finished at the body shop that is. ZR2 comes in tomorrow, Friday.
