How are the DuraTracs treating you? I'll be harassing you for snow updates!

I'm in Calgary so it'll be nice to hear it from someone in the same environmental conditions I'm in.

so far so good... just like everyone says, quiet around town with a slight hum above 70km/h but with the stereo on don't really notice it

to be honest i wasn't sold on the looks of them till i saw a set in person... they do look sweet, been getting a few comments

I'll let you know how they go in snow if we get some in the next two weeks, after that i'm off to south east asia, NZ and australia till end of jan so it will be parked up

Damn it. I think it's supposed to be sun and maybe some rain all that time.

Do me a favour.

Find your local ski hill.


Bypass the gate.


Try to run over as few people as possible, the more you flatten the sooner they'll dispatch the RCMP to stop you and put the kibosh on this lil'experiment.




Drive straight up the hill.


Please have someone film.




Preferably someone you didn't flatten. Might smudge the lens.

So truck got very scratched up after a 4x4 crowsnest pass trip after coming down a sketchy ATV sized trail... so finally did something about it.

Used 'back to black' on the fenders and bumper which looked the worst.

Then got polishing the paint which had lots of pin striping. Didn't get all the scratches out but it looks 1000x better.


Also got painting my new sliders


Ordered an AFE pro dry air filter
Getting coilovers rebuilt this week hopefully
Got OME rear shocks in the garage which will hopefully put on tomorrow.

Added all pro bumper and IFS skid plus some light force 240's and brand new headlights with BHLM done

The other side of the truck doesn't look so pretty but on Friday I will pick up a brand new hood and fender from the body shop.

Then I have to finish painting my sliders and install a expedition leaf pack, install factory fog lights plus lots of other little things! Will post up some better shots once everything is on and its clean!
