Large SUV models feature seat belts for five to eight people depending on whether the for not a third rear seat is installed.

These units are in the pool for two purposes, towing large trailers and/or off road use for research purposes. Instructional off road use is acceptable but towing and research are the primary role for these trucks.

Anything perceived as entertainment, recreation, or junkets are not approved uses of these trucks. Examples would include group camping, skiing, sports, outing trips and the like.

They are not intended to be used as substitute minivans or alternatives to 8-passenger vans. They are less than optimal for passenger use due to reduced headroom, cramped quarters and higher fuel consumption.

Our responsibility to use public monies wisely requires us to be ever respectful of public perception. We must avoid any hint that we are being less than frugal or using wasteful tools. This requires us to scrutinize the use of these vehicles. Please be prepared when asked, to justify the need for this type of vehicle.

Abuse of the privilege of access to these units in the pool may result in revocation of driving privileges depending on the circumstances.

These units feature electric trailer brake controllers, seven pin wiring hookups, and two-inch square trailer hitch receivers. Users must supply their own trailer, trailer ball, draw bar, and adapter to seven-pin wiring hookup.
