Should I get a 2 or 4 door?

We recommend a 4 door if you have more than 2 people in your party.

While a two door can seat 4 people, there isn't much cargo space for luggage and a bunch of beach gear.


Hard top or soft top?

Some folks like the security of a hard top while others like the ease of pulling the soft top back.

The hard tops do come with removable panels that are similar to t-tops.

The soft tops aren't lockable but it it a bit easier to flip the top back to get the sun shining on you.

We do recommend no leaving any valuables in any vehicle anywhere really.

 


Are we allowed to go all the way up to the summit of Mauna Kea?

Yes! While the big corporate companies do not let you, we say yes! - as long as you know what you are doing

You are allowed to go where the roads are maintained with signage, etc.

For Mauna Kea, do not use 4 low on the way up but rather, you will need 4 low in some spots on the way down.

Do not use the air conditioner (defrost turns on the AC) or you will overheat.

We see random issues with car batteries failing up there, even new batteries. So, leave the vehicle running under your watch if you can.

Using 4 low to help reduce your speed helps prevent brake falure.
